Matt Colton-

Mastering Engineer


Matt began his mastering career as an engineer at Porky’s Mastering in London, run by George ‘Porky’ Peckham in 1997 where he worked with a diverse range of artists from Aphex Twin’s Rephlex Records to Kylie Minogue, and has also worked at Optimum Mastering, Alchemy Soho and AIR Studios where he cut the vinyl masters for Coldplay’s 'Mylo Xyloto', remastered George Michael’s Faith, and the debut album by James Blake.


In 2012 Matt rejoined Alchemy Mastering as a director and engineer, mastering James Blake’s mercury prize winning second album' Overgrown', Hot Chip’s 'Why Make Sense?', and Leftfield’s 'Alternative Light Source' .

In early 2019 Matt joined the legendary roster of mastering engineers at Metropolis Studios.


Matt is one of the few mastering engineers in the world to offer half speed vinyl mastering, a technique which, although time consuming, can offer much improved vinyl sound quality. He mastered the vinyl release for the number one album 'Drones' by Muse at half speed, as well as remastering Peter Gabriel’s first 4 solo albums.

Matt was awarded the Music Producers Guild (MPG) Mastering Engineer of the year award in 2018 and 2013.
