London based mixing engineer, Zab Spencer brings over 25 years of industry experience to the table. During the 90's he worked with multi-platinum Sony Music UK artist Andrew Roachford as the band's keyboard technician, drum programmer and studio assistant in many major UK recording studios. Zab also worked as the band's backline technician at live headline and festival tours in the UK, Europe and Australia, along with slots on major live music television shows. The band worked with iconic producers and mix engineers including Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies) and Michael Brauer (Luther Vandross, Coldplay, John Mayer) where Zab got first hand insight into their legendary processes and techniques.
Zab later became tour manager to international World Music artists Nitin Sawhney and Natacha Atlas touring their respective bands throughout the UK, Europe, Canada and the USA, including a UK support slot with Sting. Live touring experience allows Zab a unique perspective of artist, band and promotion life, as well as studio recording and music production and how these different worlds connect.
Zab went to Los Angeles and used his music production skills to write for major pop production company Harvey Mason Media as well as sound design, audio post production and trailer cues for Hollywood feature films.
In 2011 Zab focused on developing his passion for mixing and interned at the world famous Larrabee Sound Studios in Los Angeles, home at that time to world renowned multi Grammy award winning creative mixing engineers Dave Pensado, Jaycen Joshua and Manny Marroquin. He picked up valuable skills and techniques used by three of the most sought after mixing engineers in the industry.
Zab learned hands on from the very best and has committed his collective knowledge, skills and depth of experience to support independent artists.
