Today I’m joined by Barry Jamieson and Dave Gardner, two incredible producers who over the years have quietly had a hand in some of dance music’s biggest tracks, and have a huge list of accolades to prove it…
Barry, aka Mono Electric Orchestra, has worked closely with major artists such as Madonna, New Order, Thom Yorke and Depeche Mode, and was nominated for a Grammy for his work with Seal.
Dave has produced stunning dance tracks under a number of collaborative projects that include Cosmonauts, Quiet Places and Sentre, and has been involved in reworking and producing the likes of The XX, M83, Pete Tong, Calvin Harris, Maribou State and Moby.
Together, they form a core part of dance music legend Sasha’s production team, helping him to craft the sound of his live performances, albums and EPs.
In this episode, they share with us their behind the scenes experience of working with Sasha for his reFracted live show, how the production team work together to write Sasha’s albums, and what goes into their unique creative processes when working on their solo and collaborative projects.
Plus, we also get an exclusive heads up on a brand new project they’re about to release which will see them pass on the very production techniques they use in the studio to the world!
