Matt Thomas AKA Rushmore visited SSR to give a fascinating and engaging lecture about how he brought various underground US styles of dance music to London through his House of Trax club night. He also discussed starting up his own label, Trax Couture, and it's acclaimed World Series releases. He went into detail about the financial realities of running a small label, and about where he is at now in his career - poised to release his debut album and tour the US.
Electronic Music & DJ Practice course leader, Jake Williams, has been putting the finishing touches to mixing Matt's album in our Neve studio. As part of the guest lecture they broke down the mixing process in front of students to provide a hands-on demonstration.
