We’re thrilled to present the MWTM series premiere with a top name in British grime music, Michalis 'MsM' Michael! Filmed at his enviable hybrid studio in London, this footage dives deep into the mix techniques used on ‘Feel Away’, the 2020 single by Slowthai featuring James Blake and Mount Kimbie. With the Pro Tools mix session open, MsM reveals his favourite ways to maximise perceived loudness, add shimmer, tame harshness, enhance transients, and much more. Aside from focussing on this record, he shares the key aspects of his regular hybrid workflow. MsM gives impartial views on the benefits of digital and analog tools, compares hybrid vs. ITB mixes, and discusses the typical stages of a project right up to mastering!
