Had the pleasure of dropping in to see John Ruberto at Crystal Mastering this afternoon. John’s been our mastering guy since 2004. He’s our first port-of-call when it comes to an upcoming release – had a great time discussing all things recording, production & planning for the next album. Awesome.

John started his mastering career back in 1985 at Newmarket studios, which was Melbourne’s only mastering studio. Since those humble beginnings he’s worked with thousands of artists including Grinspoon, Madison Avenue, Electric Mary, Daddy Cool, Alarum, Boom Crash Opera, My Friend the Chocolate Cake, Rocket Science, The Cat Empire, The Drones, Washington, Daysend, Superheist & Kate Ceberano.

We’ll be seeing John again (in a couple of months), at the end of the recording process when he applies his genius to the final mix.

It has been a beautiful sunny summer day in Melbourne town.

Have a great weekend.
Checkya later.
Fires out.
