Geoff Pesche had his first footing in the music industry as a bike messenger for Tape One Studios before moving into the cutting room, which jump-started his career in sound engineering. He went on to work for some of the UK’s top studios including Utopia, Masterpiece and Townhouse Studios before joining Abbey Road Studios as a Mastering Engineer in 2006.
Geoff has mastered albums and singles for top artists including Gorillaz, Kate Nash, Coldplay, Basement Jaxx, Amy MacDonald, Kylie Minogue and Dizzee Rascal. He’s worked with Pulp, Page & Plant, Mike Oldfield, Kenny Thomas, M People, William Orbit, Aphex Twin, Therapy, The Drums, The Divine Comedy, Lily Allen and Blur among many others.
Infamously at Tape One Studios, Geoff cut the vinyl lacquers for the best selling 12″ record of all time – New Order’s iconic Blue Monday, as well as the platinum-selling Dire Straits album Brothers In Arms. He’s also responsible for cutting the most played radio record of all time, Kylie’s Can’t Get You Out Of My Head. Geoff hosts lectures in mastering in his room at Abbey Road for each of our classes.
