Clearcut Sound Studios

Whether in the studio at Clearcut Sound, in the studio at home or out and about in venues all over the world, my raison d’être is making and playing music. Everyone’s musical experiences and influences are different but hopefully, in this mix, you’ll feel what it is that makes me feel something.
I’ve been making music in some way since I was 16 and DJing since I was 15. Being able to combine these passions with a career in audio was a dream come true. There is a bit of my brain dedicated to reminding me on a daily basis how lucky I am to do what I love for a living.
Here, on behalf of all of us at Clearcut Sound, I offer up an eclectic mix that shows off one of my sets when playing for either The Wedding Smashers or at corporate events for clients such as Mercedes, Diageo or Volkswagen (to name a few, ahem, name-dropper). Combine this flavour with a few cuts I might play under the Reds moniker and you’ve got a little musical journey that everyone can get vibesy to.
