Video Feature By Will Betts
Published June 2015

In this video, mix engineer Cenzo Townshend gives us a tour of his new studio and shows us the techniques behind his mix of ‘Marks To Prove It’.

This month we head to the picturesque Suffolk countryside to meet mix engineer Cenzo Townshend in his new facility, Decoy Studios. Cenzo’s undeniably British sound has graced the airwaves countless times, with credits ranging from Kaiser Chiefs to Tom Jones, via Florence + The Machine and U2.

Over the course of this month’s video feature, Cenzo and his team give us a brief tour of the complex, taking in the two mix rooms, the striking live room and an unusually welcoming vocal booth. 

Cenzo also talks technique, discussing the process of re-amping guitars and bass, judicious use of EQ when separating guitars, and the importance of phase when it comes to mixing drums and bass.
