Our mastering engineer Stuart Hawkes was delighted after three of the artists he worked with recently were honoured at the 18th MOBO Awards Ceremony last night, October 19.
Stuart mastered albums for Rudimental and Tinie Tempah, winners of Best Album (for ‘Home’) and Best UK Hip Hop/Grime, respectively. He also mastered the MOBO Best Song (in association with PRSforMusic) by Naughty Boy (‘La La La’). Both Rudimental and Tinie gave stunning performances on the night for the audience in Glasgow, and for those at home watching on BBC3. Tinie’s new album ‘Demonstration’, due on November 4, was recently mastered by Stuart.
