Streaky embarked on his career as a Mastering Engineer in the early nineties. Following his earlier musical life as an Acid house DJ, he fired up his Atari to create remixes for The Stone Roses, Groove Armada and many more, before making the transition into Mastering. He joined Metropolis in Autumn 2013.
Streaky’s journey began when he landed his first gig at Zomba’s Battery Studio, learning the art of compact disc mastering before moving to Soundmasters in 2000. Here he worked with some legendary artists across a broad range of genres and became a respected name in the vinyl cutting world, working with some renowned DJs and international dance acts.
Streaky only uses high end analogue equipment as he feels it offers him the feel and musicality required after all the current digital processing. Streaky has earned a reputation for achieving a sound beyond the commercial norm. Clients develop a great working relationship with Streaky, knowing he fully understands and appreciates their vision and the sound they’d like to achieve on the final master.
Lily Allen, Will Young, Hurts, P Diddy, Usher, Wiley, Depeche Mode, Taio Cruz, Skepta and Chip are just a handful of the artists to benefit from Streaky’s expertise as a Mastering Engineer.
