Congratulations to the group, all the way from Spain, Eclectica on releasing their new album “Dulce Y Salvaje”. Our resident engineer Jeremy Lubsey was fortunate to master their album. We wish them all the best on the release of this great record.
Following the success of last year’s Blonde, Frank Ocean – one of music’s biggest and most critically-acclaimed stars right now – has recently released a string of surprise singles that have been praised as some of his best work. And of course, Vlado Meller was the one recruited to put the finishing sonic touches on all three songs.
The low-key “Chanel,” the Jay-Z and Tyler The Creator-featuring “Biking,” and the newest single “Lens” were all mastered by Vlado (with assistance from engineer Jeremy Lubsey), who also mastered Ocean’s groundbreaking 2012 album channel ORANGE. That album went on to be nominated for three Grammy Awards, winning for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
Congratulations to Frank on the success of the new singles! We always enjoy working with his music and with his team, including engineer Caleb Laven and manager Dan Gieckel.
They’ve been hailed as “exacting and exciting musicians” (LA Times), invited by President Obama to perform at the White House for the 2011 State Dinner honoring South Korea, and worked with renowned artists like Pat Metheny, Michael Nyman and Mark O’Connor.
Now the classical-rooted Ahn Trio, comprised of sisters Angella, Lucia, and Maria, is set to unveil the first album on their own label, Ahn Trio Music.
Blue will be released this Saturday, April 22 to mark Earth Day and of course, they decided to once again enlist Vlado Meller (with assistance from Jeremy Lubsey) for his mastering touch, following his work on 2008’s Lullaby for My Favorite Insomniac.
Here’s what the Ahn Trio had to say about working with Vlado this time around:
“Vlado Meller has done it again! After putting his magical touch on our last album Lullaby for My Favorite Insomniac, he has once again sprinkled his magic on our new album Blue. We are so lucky to work with such an extraordinary master, and our music wouldn’t sing the same way without his final touches!”
Vlado himself is a big personal fan of the trio, calling their music a “beautiful interpretation of classical music in a modern and contemporary way,” and saying the “performances and arrangements on Blue are truly outstanding.”
