“My role isn't about making things sound good, it’s about making music feel right”
Aidan is a mixing engineer, recording engineer and music producer with a life-consuming obsession of sound. His fascination with recorded music formed as a young teen and has flourished into a full time career creating music with artists from around the globe over the past 14 years including Overhead The Albatross, Murdock, The Winter Passing, Tired Minds and who has mixed projects for notable producers Kurt Ballou and Phil Magee
‘The very first thought I have on every project I work on is, “how can I make this not the same?” I treat every recording and mixing project as it’s own entity and I explore what is unique to each song and artist. To me, a recording is an archival of an artist’s identity at a given time. It is about capturing humans playing and creating music. I strive to avoid homogeneity, the last thing we all need is more songs that sound the same.
For that reason, I tend to favour more organic production methods that highlight the musicians performances. If you want a hyper-edited, auto-tuned, mechanically perfect record then I'm not your guy. If you want to make a record that captures all the grit, attitude and imperfections of people that make music feel right, then let's make a record.
I have worked with a wide range of artists, both signed and independent alike from all over the globe, creating music that is sonically exciting and unique. My portfolio spans across genres including Hardcore, Metal, Punk, Post-Rock, Indie, Pop, Hip-Hop and everything in between, with records being released on Prosthetic Records, Deathwish Inc, 6130 Records, Art As Catharsis, Basick Records. My work has been featured on publications and broadcasters such as BBC Radio 1, Metal Hammer, Big Cheese, Kerrang! Rocksound, Scuzz TV.
I’m a Multi-Instrumentalist musician Guitar, Drums, Piano, Saxophone.
