The Secret Behind The Hits!

They say behind every great man is a great woman. This is true! I also like to say…”behind every great record is a great producer and engineer”. Because no matter how talented the artist or band is, no matter how much you like their voice, nothing – and I mean nothing will ever be worth listening to without the talented people behind the board who record, mix and master it for all to hear!

I do believe a hit record starts with a pen. Meaning – what the songwriter/composer originally wrote. But what happens between the paper and your ears is a world of high tech knob turning where so much can go right or wrong. And trust me when I tell you this is where it all happens. It's the difference between a hit and a mediocre record. There's a reason why The Grammy's® are put on and run by an organization called The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences. That's right people. They never really go by their long name, but the name says it all.

So, in the wake of Grammy week I couldn't help but put the HK sonic twist on Mumford & Sons - "I Will Wait" and Bruno Mars - "Locked Out of Heaven". I'm gonna have your head spinning and your body moving with my remixes on them plusCalvin Harris/Florence Welch - "Sweet Nothing" and Nicki Minaj and the Biebs. And that's just the first set! You do not want to miss this show, so check out In The Mix with HK this weekend and hear all your favorite hits like you've never heard them before!

Remember…"if it's hot, if it's new and it makes you wanna move…you're In The Mix with HK™".
