LANDR, CloudBounce & The Future Of Mastering

A very interesting article on mastering in the September 2016 issue of Sound On Sound that is worth a read if you’re into that sort of thing.
Its got some accompanying audio example tracks on which I played drums and bass. As Features Editor (and guitarist/vocalist) Sam Inglis describes it – ‘a traditional ballad about the incident that ended Jesus’s football career, arranged in a disco style’. There’s a market for that, right?
