Producer, Recording and Mix Engineer
Stevan operates from his own studio in North London and can look back at a 15 year career in the industry. While originally coming from a Hip-Hop and electronic music background (despite a classical music education) he now works mainly in alternative rock, folk and cabaret.
He likes to take a very classic approach to production: Working closely with the artists to get the songs and arrangements perfect and the band tightly rehearsed, to be able to go to the studio and capture great performances and emotion in beautiful sounding spaces. At other times modern production, layering sounds and studio experimentation are more appropriate and he will do whatever the artistic vision requires.
He also enjoys recording on location (much of Wolf People’s "Fain“ album was recorded with a mobile setup in an old gatehouse near the Yorkshire Dales) as well as old school recording (all live in a room with no headphones & no overdubs) such as the legendary London folk & jazz collective Whiskey Moon Face’s album, which he recorded.
Longstanding friendships with the bands Wolf People and Tom Mansi & the Icebreakers led him to work on most of their records as well as working on various side projects, such as numerous successful library albums for Boosey & Hawkes. Through another long term collaborator, musical director Michael Roulston, I also worked with some of London’s finest cabaret acts, including Polly Rae, Dusty Limits, Champagne Charlie & Tricity Vogue.
He was nominated and shortlisted for "Breakthrough Engineer of the Year“ in the MPG Awards 2011 and "Breakthrough Producer of the Year“ in the MPG Awards 2012.
