Sass Jordan “Dusk Til’ Dawn” This is Sass’s seventh record and she’s sold over a million records to date. I mixed this latest 10 song album remote mix style in my Los Angeles studio with record producer Derek Sharp who was in Montreal Canada during the process.
Sass and Derek live in Montreal and are very busy people so the remote mix style fit right into their lifestyles nicely. They loved the process and how easy it was for us to communicate and how no-pressure and smooth it went. I simply emailed Derek and Sass an mp3 of a mix during the sessions where they listened and sent notes based on their own pace.
I mixed the record completely in-the-box, itb on my ProTools HD3 system. They really wanted a timeless warm analog sound so I invoked a 1970’s studio record vibe. That mostly involved not over-processing and a few other tricks to keep things intimate and gritty. Helping that in no small way are no click tracks, no auto-tune, no crazy edits.
They recorded it fast and true. It’s mostly one take performances from front to back. It’s a very honest rock record showing the soul, confidence and expertise of everyone involved. Especially of course Sass’s beautifully honest, powerful vocals and lyrics. Rock records used to be made this way when you had to be great to make them that way. http://www.sassjordan.com/
