Join us for another series with the king of crunch, Tchad Blake! Filmed at his own studio in Wales, this instalment is a 'Deconstructing a Mix' special that gives you a fly-on-the-wall observation of Tchad mixing a session. His objective is to remix the 2005 single 'No Wow' by The Kills, and you can witness how he does this from start to finish. Blake introduces the project, explains his goals, walks you through the multi-track, then tackles the job. You'll see how Tchad enhances the original mix while maintaining its gritty aesthetic by applying a variety of creative techniques. These include stereo image expansion, 3D audio processing, automated effects, multi-band compression, and much more!
