Metropolis, home of the best in audio mastering, has added Streaky to its roster of award-winning Mastering Engineers.
Streaky has been in the business for over 20 years, having started out as a Mastering Engineer in the early 90s. From his beginnings as an acid house DJ, he then moved into remixing for a number of influential acts (Stone Roses, Groove Armada etc.). He began his career in Mastering at Battery Studios in 1994, developing a strong client base among superstar acts and heavyweight producers, before moving to Soundmasters in 2000 where he honed his skills in vinyl mastering.
In 2004, Streaky launched eMasters as one of the first professional level online mastering services in Europe, and four years later launched his own Streaky Mastering. Running this successful independent service, Streaky mastered platinum singles and chart-topping albums for artists as diverse as Ed Sheeran, Lily Allen, Will Young, Hurts, P Diddy, Usher, Wiley, Adele, Depeche Mode, Taio Cruz, Sheryl Crow, Bright Light Bright Light, Skepta, Ray LaMontagne and Kasabian.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for me to work from such an historic studio”, said Streaky upon the announcement. “The mastering rooms at Metropolis sound like no other I’ve worked in, so I know my clients will be very happy with the sound I will be able to achieve. Metropolis Mastering has been the number one place to master from for well over a decade, so it was a very easy decision for me to join the team there”.
Dan Baldwin, Head of Metropolis Mastering, welcomed Streaky to the team “We’re all really excited to welcome Streaky on board the Mastering team – his skills and experience perfectly compliment the Metropolis ethos. His arrival further bolsters our position as the leading mastering house Europe”.
Streaky has earned a reputation for achieving a sound beyond the commercial norm, and developing deep and lasting working relationships with his clients. This is an integral part of him understanding and ultimately delivering their vision of the sound they’d like to achieve on their final master.
Streaky lives in London with his wife, two boys and an unhealthy obsession with classic cars.
