Belgian artist Zap Mama is one of the most eclectic artists out there. A true world artist. This album focused on "the voice." Most of the instruments on these tracks I mixed were created all from the human voice. Producer D1 and Zap Mama worked together to take the simple human voice and transform it into the bed tracks for these songs. Kick drums, snares, hi hats, 808's, all made from vocal samples. I ended up mixing 4 songs and a handful of interludes that sewed this concept record together. Needless to say this was an incredibly creative mix for me. Marie likes to communicate mixing decisions in a way in which Quincy Jones does. Using creative esoteric descriptors rather than "turn the bass up". Every syllable, breath, click, snap and pause was of the upmost importance. While I mixed on the SSL Duality in Studio A at Zoo Labs, Oakland, CA. Zap Mama was in the live room taking her band fresh off the plane from Europe through a grueling 10 hour rehearsal. She would pop into the control room in-between breaks and check in on the mixes and lend her comments. I'm not sure when the record drops or what it's called actually but it's a intergalactic trip and it's bad ass.
