Daniel Boyle has been working in the industry for 17 years. Beginning his career as an in-house engineer for a large commercial studio where he stayed for 6 years before setting up his own studio, to focus on offering analogue mixing; and to be a base for his own productions.
Over the last decade, he has made his name primarily in the Reggae world. Producing and mixing albums for many of the Reggae genres founding artists, such as Max Romeo & Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. Culminating with a Grammy Nominated album for Lee Perry. As is common in the Reggae world, his production efforts for the likes of Lee Perry, are wholly independent, working on his own releases from inception through to release. Working for an artist directly, arranging, engineering and producing the music, and in many cases releasing it independently also.
For his external client work, Daniel now operates full time out of his home studio, as a Mix engineer. He mixes using vintage analogue equipment, centred around a highly customised SSL 6000G+ Console. His persistence in continuing to use a dusty analogue console and ancient outboard, to mix and provide highly creative dub versions for his clients, has seen his signature dub techniques be employed across a number of genres; from Rock to Afrobeat.
Daniel Boyle gives regular guest lectures for us, where he conducts a session split between the history of Dub music and a practical workshop on Dub mixing techniques. You can find out more about Daniel in this interview on our blog.
