Interview with Jamie Meads
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Simon Green - Bonobo. He is the king of using organic sounds & creating texture.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Check your mix in Mono!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I have extensive experience working on instrumental music-including Rock, Reggae, and Pop. At the moment I am working on my own project 'M34diate" & have just released my first album 'Saturnine Waves" - available on all platforms.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Clarity, heart, fresh air.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Listening, listening, and more listening first. Then I will make notes and communicate with the client about what I hear and the way I might go with the project. This is so overlooked and completely essential before reaching for an EQ/Compressor etc.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Most of my work is done in the box, although I do have access to a full-analog studio featuring an Audient 8020 Hertigae desk, ADAM 7-series monitors, and a ton of outboard gear. I will usually get a mix sounding good in software and use the studio to add that final 'analog' warmth. I use Slate Digital and UAD plugins - they are amazing!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: As far as Engineers go, that would have to be people like Andrew Schepps, Streaky, Butch Vig, and Mike Hillier. Producer-wise, that would have to be artists such as Simon Green (Bonobo), Kieron Hebden (four Tet) & john Hopkins. I also love Reggae/Dub production & some of the heroes include; Panda Dub, Zion Train & Bush Chemists.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Usually mixing & mastering-which may include some arrangement, tuning and advice to my clients. I have co-produced on various projects, either playing live instruments or adding sections where needed. I have also done a host of sound-to-film projects, which were featured in an Australian film festival-picking up prizes.
