It's not what you know but who you know. My fledgling career is thus far staying true to that mantra, and earlier this year it struck once again. Through good friends of good friends, I found myself given the opportunity to diversify my portfolio with a new client; OWSLA. The Los Angeles record label, founded by Sonny Moore, Tim Smith, Kathryn Frazier and Clayton Blaha, were making preparations for an upcoming residency on London-based radio station Rinse FM and needed audio branding materials for the show. One recommendation from a friend to a another friend later and I secured the commission for the production work.
Over the course of a few weeks back in the spring I worked with audio submissions from artists on the label to produce a catalogue of stingers, sweepers and beds to be used on the show, as well as the show's intro. It was a great project for me as I got the opportunity to work with some great artists in a field I hadn't touched before professionally. Although the residency's air date has been delayed, this looks like it could be the start of a longer relationship between OWSLA and myself. In anticipation of an air date for the full show you can listen to the intro below, and as always any feedback submitted via the contact form on this page or my Twitter feed is greatly appreciated.
I'll be back with another update in January, so a Merry Christmas to you and thanks for being here!
