"Generally I aim to produce modern punchy sounding records whist maintaining the real performance element."

Russell has worked on tracks from Instant Agony, secondnature, Sly and Robbie, Don Carlos and Gold, Erol Holt, Lincoln Scott, Aston Barrett and many more but music production is about more than just the recorded medium.

Want to step up your live performance? Russell is available for live engineering or coaching and has worked live with artists such as AntiProduct, Byzantine, Howie Payne, The Sums.

Cybaddiction Studios is Russell's private studio based in Wirral near Liverpool, Chester and North Wales.

With Pro Tools and Analogue recording and a friendly creative air, it is the ideal environment to get those creative juices folowing. The new Cybaddiction recording studio is now in opperation, within Fallen Industries studios Wirral. The Studio is housed in an engine test bay from the old Champion Spark Plugs Factory.
