Not Currently Taking Bookings

Hi, I'm Kurt. I'm a Recording Engineer and Dolby Atmos Mixer based in London, UK.

I work from a number of well-known studios across London including Sarm and Metropolis where I cut my teeth with some of the most talented and sought after engineers and producers from both sides of the Atlantic.

I engineered the Platinum selling single ‘Rain’ by Aitch & AJ Tracey, the Top 10 album '2.0' by JLS, and have worked with other major label artists including Sam Fender, Tom Grenan, Jess Glynne, Burna Boy, Disciples, Ina Wroldsen, Fleur East and comedian Jack Whitehall.

Since joining the team Dean St. Studios in Soho, I have played the role of Assistant Dolby Atmos Mix Engineer on Spatial Audio releases for The Rolling Stones, Jessie Ware, Aurora, Years & Years, Brandi Carlile, Wolfmother, Aurora and Glass Animals to name just a few.

    A true professional who produced our first demos when starting out as a band.

    Amazing production and professionalism.

Interview with Kurt Martinez

  1. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  2. A: The project isn't finished until you're completely happy.

  3. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  4. A: Do you have a demo or recording of a live version so I can get a feel for the project? Do you have a song or artist you'd like to use as a reference?

  5. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  6. A: No two projects are ever the same. Everyone writes and produces differently. Every mix goes in a different direction to the last. That's what keeps things fun and interesting.

  7. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  8. A: Day to day I work between a number of studios across London as a recording engineer for major label artists.

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: I'm a huge fan of analogue warmth but we do live in a digital age. I work primarily in the box, but if there's outboard available at the studio I'm working from then I will certainly make use of it.

  11. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  12. A: I actually contributed towards an article on music production tips recently for AudioSkills.com. You can find that article here: https://audioskills.com/tips/music-production/
