There has been much talk in recent days about this year’s Grammy nominations. Among them, in the Best Dance/Electronic Album category, sits Epoch by Tycho. In this video from Dangerous Music, sound engineer and producer Count (Mikael Eldridge) talks about mixing the album. Hear why Count and Tycho decided to move beyond mixing Pro Tools in the box and why they chose the Dangerous 2-BUS+ for summing Tycho’s intricately layered music.
Originally from Austin, Texas, Count (AKA Mikael Eldridge) has been involved in just about every aspect of the music business. Working through the 90's in San Francisco at various record labels [Polygram, Verve, PopMafia, and Ubiquity], he acquired a vast knowledge of the music business while continuing work as an engineer, mixer, and producer.
