Vince Staples-Hell Can Wait EP
 
Hi has anyone here worked on this fantastic Vince Staples EP?
Anyone know who mastered this?
Unfortunately there is no mastering credit to be found on discogs or allmusic.
Young Guru mixed this I just want to find out who mastered.

Thank you for your help

Here are the official credits, as recorded by the label:

https://jaxsta.com/release/8430414b-...69db6/overview

Interestingly there's no mastering credit here either.

Which means a) the label didn't record it correctly or b) there was no mastering engineer.

It is. You expect discogs and allmusic to be incomplete, but if jaxsta is incomplete, it means the original label copy is incomplete too.

OR - maybe they got it mastered, but preferred guru's listening mixes or something?

weird...
it is quite rare for a major release to go with listening mixes though no?
Anyone worked on this project?
Just curious and also love the production and the overall sound of this record
It's smashed in a very nice way imho and the low end opinion is huge!

I suppose it depends how much the mastering engineer changed things, what the budget was and what say the artist had! Sometimes people get attached to their listening refs and anything else is a downgrade.

I’m only guessing though. It’s unusual but not unheard of.
