Sansyou – The Dilettante

Moon Sounds Records

I just finished up mixing a 4 song EP for Sansyou and also mastered the album. One of the tracks was mixed by Scott Gould in PA, and the other three here at the Ice Station. Sansyou have a very clean minimal sound and a great focus on dynamics in their songs. I approached mixing their music under the idea of only adding something if the song absolutely needed it, for example compressors or EQ for balancing.

For mastering I simply took an approach of polishing and balancing, with their music, we weren’t going for blasting out ear drums but a smooth present sound for the listener.
