The Medics

It's been a while since my last news-update, and I've done some nice jobs since. Besides that I also enjoyed a great vacation :)

I mixed an album for The Medics. This very energetic new band has a lot of catchy tunes wich are all featured on their debut album called "Dance into the Dark". It was a blast mixing these songs and the boys even alowed me to add some percussion on some tracks.

If you like bands such as: Franz Ferdinand, Editors, The Wombats, Vampire Weekend than you will for sure also like The Medics. You can check out the entire album at 3voor12 luisterpaal .

After my vacation I helped indie-rockband Swelter with the recordings of their 2nd album. Once all the recordings are done I will also perform mixing-duties :)

Right now I am in the middle of the album production for Tarball. This ass-kickin' rockband has finally made the step to record their first album. We already recorded all drums, bass, guitars and leadvocals. Only the backing vocals and percussion is still on the to-do-list, and once these are recorded I will start mixing this heavy rock album.

I find it very difficult to compare this band to any other loud act. But if I have to give a description I would say: "a mixture of Deftones, Alice in Chains, Metallica, Chevelle and A Perfect Circle"


Here's a funny video shot just outside the studio when frontman Daan volunteered to get rid of all the beercans:
