In a previous article, relating to Biggest Capital Greatest Music (BCGM) Record label, we mentioned how artists can greatly benefit from having a cohesive, and strong willed team. Even though we honed in on labels, we can’t forget one of the most precious commodities to a song’s success. Outside of the pure art, having a solid Mix & Master of your piece can take it to the next level. It’s the reason Cobain was so crazy about Steve Albini, and one of the reasons Bilal has so much respect for Dr. Dre. Developing clean and crisp sound is an absolute skill- a skill that Bruce Buehlman of “All Mixed Up LA” is very familiar with.
Buehlman has worked with a slew of notable names such as Babyface, Jennifer Lopez, and Kenny Loggins. He's also been a key component of several acclaimed projects including Avatar, Titanic, and Bohemian Rhapsody (The Movie). To no surprise, with his great work entangled with so many A-list endeavors, Buehlman has been nominated for 3 Emmy awards, along with one Golden Reel award.
A quote on All Mixed Up's website reads:
“Mixing and Mastering are two different processes used to create your final project. Mixing is a creative process which includes adjusting individual tracks, adding effects to create a cohesive listening presentation and experience. Mastering is more technical in nature, but can also add a creative touch. We use a variety of tools and techniques to polish the overall level, dynamics, sonics, imaging, feel, space, etc. (when appropriate), enhancing and bringing your vision to reality.”
