Did you know that this site started in 1999 and was one of the very first websites in the world to feature videos?
RecordProduction.com is an award winning web site that covers all aspects of record making and music production. This website features interviews with leading music producers and audio engineers, tours of recording studios and video tutorials demonstrating recording & mixing techniques.
This site is by people in the industry for people in the industry to connect, inform and showcase talent. The site is based in London, England, but covers all major areas of the world with major contributors based in New York and L.A. We would like to sincerely thank everyone who has given up their time and resources. Just some of our key contributors are credited below:
George Shilling has been recording features for this site for 16 years. George is super busy as a record producer, musician, arranger, studio owner and journalist writing for Resolution magazine. Possibly the busiest person we know but still makes time to record features :-)
Long standing visitors to recordproduction.com will probably have enjoyed watching some of the many features that Johnny Jaskot recorded. It is with huge sadness that we had to report that he passed away at the start of 2018. Our deepest sympathies to his family and friends.
Mike Exeter has been a fantastic driving force helping propel RP from long format interviews - which are still great - to shorter more focused features. This has been a big success and Mike can be seen on many of the newer features. We aren't sure how he finds time, being a bit 'in-demand'!
Russell Cottier started life on RP as an interviewee but has gone on to record many excellent features over what seems like ten years. He is a very busy recording engineer / producer and is as at home with a folk band as with a metal band. Russ also writes for Resolution magazine.
Clint Murphy, like Russ Cottier, started out as an interviewee but has proved to be a brilliant contributor. As an engineer and producer he is very current with all aspects of production and with awards stacking up we hope that he doesn't become 'too busy' to do more features!
Jack Hale, pictured here in the studio has been a HUGE help in making Nashville and Memphis get on to the site, sadly we've not done many in the recent years. Jack has been an amazingly warm and helpful guy - we can't thank him enough for all of his kind and selfless work in making so many excellent features possible. Thanks Jack!
Nick Poortman spent a few years working in the UK alongside engineers including Clint Murphy before returning home to New Zealand. He has since moved to L.A. and has been been busy recording stacks of great new features there so hopefully, if you're out there, you can have him visit you!
Scott Mathews has been a big help in making our videos that much better by providing excellent intro music and we can't thank him enough for his work in making the LA scene coverage that much better by his kind access to his contacts. Scott's feature is here - we hope to get back over and feature more of his contacts soon.
Phil English has helped with several interviews and produced the occasional and now 'resting' RP Full English Podcast. In addition to his work here, Phil is a producer and recording engineer who has escaped the UK to more Stateside - we've not heard from him since...!
Russ Russell has worked with bands such as Napalm Death, The Wildhearts, The Exploited, Evil... He has been producing, recording and playing for over 20 years working as Russ says with "every kind of metal, rock, classical, blues, jazz, pop, acoustic, dub, bhangra, country, hip hop, trip hop, sea shanty and heads down no nonsense glam thrash boogie.” Russ is based at Parlour Studios in Northamptonshire, UK.
Mike Banks, this site's creator & webmaster is the person that throws this site together in the wee small hours and he films and edits virtually every video feature too.
