Legendary mixers Bob Clearmountain and Dylan Dresdow sit down with Ronan Chris Murphy March 6th at Audio Bloggers Live! for in in depth discussion of mixing iconic tracks and what you can learn from their years at the top of hit recording mixing.
In the world of recording, Bob Clearmountain needs no introduction. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest mixers of all time. He defined the sound of mainstream pop-rock in the 80s (Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, David Bowie, et. al.) and is still active doing work that is just as relevant today. His work on Roxy Music’s “Avalon” is considered a high water mark for early 80s sound. He works out of Mix This! studio in Santa Monica, CA.
Dylan “3-D” Dresdow is a Grammy award winner, Emmy award winner, and multi-platinum tracking and mixing engineer. He has mixed some of the biggest hits of the last decade including the second biggest selling digital single of all time (The Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feeling”).
He got his break assisting the legendary Dave Pensado before getting many of the biggest names in rap and pop as his own clients. Dylan quickly began racking up platinum credits working for such artists as Ice Cube, Coolio, Redman, Method Man, TLC, and the Wu Tang Clan. In 2002, he gained more notoriety when he contributed to the cover of “Lady Marmalade” performed my Christina Aguilera, Pink, Mya, Lil Kim, and Missy Elliot, which won one grammy out of 3 nominations at the 2003 Grammy Awards, and was also nominated for a Tec award. The next year he worked on “Elephunk” by the Black Eyed Peas, which was nominated in the Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and highly coveted Best Engineered Non-Classical categories.
