So this Blog update is long over due, but here are some updates of what’s been happening at the studio this year so far.
The studio has been booked full for the first 3 months and shows no signs of slowing down. There have been several engineers keeping things productive and lots of records being produced.
Joe Mabbott has been busy primarily mixing and mastering with a bit of tracking thrown in as well. Here are a handful of selected projects Mabbott has been working on;
The Thank You Notes self released their first full length album that was Recorded and Mixed at The Hideaway Studio by Joe Mabbott and Brady Moen. This album takes you from down right gritty to polished ripping leads and back again. You can go get their record here.
Circle of Heat brought the funk when they tracked their debut record Big Wheelin’ Hot Stuff at The Hideaway with Joe Mabbott’s trusty right hand man Brady Moen in November and December of 2011. Here was a nice write up by City Pages about their CD Release show.
The free download of The Bite Marked Heart by Brother Ali, produced by Jake One, and ANT of Atmosphere was mixed at a feverish pace by Joe Mabbott so that people could enjoy it in time for Valentine’s Day.
The Legend god himself Lazerbeak brought in 20 heaters, better known as LAVABANGERS to be mixed by Joe Mabbott. Lazerbeak and DJ extraordinaire Plain Ole Bill put together a seamless flow of these tracks to keep your ears pleased and your head bobbing for nearly 50 minutes straight.
