Melaza- NuYorican Salsa
The power of perspective is amazing. Sometimes when we are too close to something we make, we just can’t see what it is. In this case, I got to be the guy standing at the back saying, “yeah, it’s a little crooked”. This record was brilliantly recorded by members of the Daptone gang at their Dunham studio. When it came time to mix and nothing had quite clicked, Jacob Plasse invited me to take a spin on it. 2 days later, the album was done- and without the use of a single computer! Those guys take their tape seriously- and you can hear it. Awesome band and amazing recording. Thanks for the chance to mix!
