Veteran producer / mixer, Michael James, is enjoying his fifth week at number one at Mexican radio with his mix of Kalimba's "Estrellas Rotas." The track has actually topped two charts:
Audience Response and Spins.
James, who has a long history of working with artists early in their careers (Hole, L7, New Radicals, Jane's Addiction, among others), has managed to remain ahead of the curve when it comes to production and mixing. An early believer in "hybrid mixing," the native New Yorker has consistently brought fresh perspectives to songs, sometimes taking tracks in their most raw forms and creating dazzling mixes or even taking a previously mixed track and making it even better, thus winning over the artist with his take on how to get the most out of a recording.
While James has won over many artists with his mixing abilities – as well as his guitar work – many of James' clients come by way of the collective he helped found, IndieProMix. IPM has proven to benefit both producer and artists, as James has helped up and coming artists release advanced recordings at an affordable rate, while keeping the Los Angeles area habitant up on the latest new sounds.
