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.
