Mix & Mastering
Professional Music MixingWhen Les Frères Smith came to us for the mixing of their album, we asked them what references they had, which kind of sound they were after. They replied that what they were looking for was the sound of Oghene Kologbo's free MP3 on Paris DJs. Lucky for them, our sound engineer Grant Phabao was the one who had mixed this song.
When Mr. Moo, one of the great music experts in France, listened to Les Frères Smith's album, Contraband Mentality, he was amazed that, for once, an album produced in Paris was sounding really great, occupying the full space of the room with clearness and distinction. The record was vibrant, warm. The sound was punchy, deep, full, wide, with a clear music sound. This doesn't happen often so he asked: "who mixed this album, it sounds really great?". "It's Grant Phabao" did we reply to him with a smile. "Oh! I understand really better now, I should have known".
Studio One legends The Lone Ranger, Carlton Livingston, The Jays, Reggie Stepper and many other Jamaican veterans were also amazed by Grant Phabao's "supersound". The rumor now runs deep in Kingston that a Parisian guy has managed to "bring back the original King Tubby & Lee Perry sounds with a modern twist", and singers, deejays & sound systems are queuing up to get their recordings mixed at Paris DJs studios.
You can also get your single or your album mixed by Grant Phabao for a punchy, deep, full, vibrant, wide, clear musical sound.
Professional MasteringDid you ever wonder why our podcasts sound so good, even though we sometimes play rare, old and dusty vinyls?
Here's the reason: most of the ParisDJs.com shows are audio-mastered by our sound engineer Grant Phabao from WAV source before mp3 encoding, in 24bit whenever possible.
A part of the great value to be found in our podcasts is in the mastering.
If you've just finished an album, a mix, a compilation, or any kind of musical program, you need a proper, professional audio mastering.
Don't look no further.
If what you want is a vintage 1970s sound, un-gimmicky spatialisation and equilibrium, and real warmth, you've found the right place.
