Filmed at Motorbass studio in Paris, this unique series explores the work of Philippe Zdar. The Grammy-winning engineer, producer, and DJ challenges himself to remix the 2009 mega-hit 'Lisztomania' by the French band Phoenix! Zdar takes you through his workflow, showing the gear he uses, discussing his monitor choices, and rationalising his love for mixing on a console. Following an overview of his setup and commentary on mixing vs. production mindset, he dives into the remix process. Using Pro Tools only for playback, Philippe builds a new mix entirely on his SSL 4000 E console and outboard equipment. He details every step of his exciting process in a charismatic and deeply informative manner, covering issues both technical and aesthetic. You'll see exactly how he outdoes his original mix, and will surely be entertained along they way!
