RSR278 – Daniel Schlett – Finding the Space Between the Notes at Strange Weather Studio in Brooklyn NY

What the heck is micro editing?? Daniel Schlett talked about using the API Legacy console at Strange Weather Studio in Brooklyn NY, working with Ghost Killah, Songhoy Blues, Steve Gunn, and Booker T, making it onto the cover of Mix Magazine, and more!

My guest today is Daniel Schlett a Producer, Engineer, Mixer and owner of Strange Weather Studio seen on the cover of Mix Magazine in 2019 as one of the best rooms in Brooklyn NY. Daniel’s production finds itself at the creative intersection where acoustic and rock recording meets loop and edit based production. His discography ranges from NYC hip hop to live in-studio performances, to rock production from Mali with a clear sense of how each sounds best. 

Daniel has worked with many great artists including Iggy Pop, Booker T., Songhoy Blues, Peelander-Z, Ghostface Killah, War on Drugs, Luke Temple and Here We Go Magic, Combo Chimbita, The Lost Brothers. And I’ve been enjoying a fantastic sounding playlist of videos for you in the show notes. 

I’m psyched to talk with Daniel today about his philosophy of production with a wide range of musical styles and see what we can learn about working with a variety of artists. Thanks to Dave Hintze at API for making our introduction.
