Unleashing Creativity: Why Renowned Electronic Artists Entrust the Mixing Process to Experts
Nov 2, 2023
In the realm of electronic music, the journey from a rough idea to a polished track involves numerous steps. Among these, mixing is a critical phase that ensures each element sits well in the track, creating a well-balanced, harmonious sound. However, not all artists revel in the minutiae of this technical process. In fact, two notable figures in the electronic music industry, Jon Hopkins and Skream, have openly shared how delegating the mixing process has significantly bolstered their creative output.
In an interview, Jon Hopkins mentioned, “I don’t really get a huge amount of pleasure in spending hours making a bass fit perfectly or twiddling little Notch filters to get everything right. So, it was amazing to be able to trust someone else with that stuff so I could have more energy to actually create."
Similarly, the dubstep maestro, Skream, recently took to Twitter to express a parallel sentiment. He tweeted, “The minute I stopped mixing my stuff I became my most creative,” sparking a lively discussion among his followers on the importance of mixing in electronic music production.
Skream further emphasised the distinction between outsourcing the mixing process and ghost-producing, stating, “There’s a huge difference between having someone mix your track and someone ghost-produce it, people need to understand. Nobody changes my art though. The mix engineer just enhances the art that’s provided to them by a producer or musician.”
These anecdotes underscore a prevailing narrative in the music industry—mixing, while crucial, can be a separate skill, and artists should have the latitude to focus on where their strengths lie.
