Album Mix / Vocal and Instrument Recordings

Devin Abrams approached Organik Muzik Workz early in 2008 to discuss work on his 4th release under the guise of ‘Pacific Heights’. Over the following six months Organik Muzik Workz worked with Devin to gain an indepth understanding of his concept for the album and what would be needed to achieve the sound, as it was a marked departure from his previous releases.

The project was then broken down into parts. Initial draft mixes for each track were produced then shortlisted for the album. This was followed by the recording of each of the vocalists; Joe Dukie (Fat Freddy’s Drop), P-Diggs (Shapeshifter), Ladi 6, Lisa Tomlins (Rhombus), Mara TK (Electric Wire Hustle), Sacha Vee (Oval Office), Mark Vanilau (Departure Lounge) and MC’s J-Dubs and Aeries. Instrumental recordings were also undertaken including guitar takes from Fat Freddy’s Drop’s Jetlag Johnson. From here each track was then meticulously mixed both in studio with Devin actively involved as well as independently (working to detailed notes) while Devin was touring abroad. before being sent to Evan Short of Concord Dawn for mastering.
