David Bianco has put up his hand to mix my new record.
Have any of you guys worked with him.
Just wondering if he's a nice guy;
how happy were people with his mix's
He has worked on very diverse projects
Syliva massey is another we are looking at, altho her resume is probably too "ROCK"

I'd work with Dave.
He's a very nice guy who's been around a long time and worked on many good records.
He's also very easy going, except when the same neve channel goes down for the 3rd time in one week.
Nobody's work is spot on all the time. We all know how many variables go into making a record.

He was in mixing the Dropkick Murphys latest CD and was a very personable guy. I didn't work with him, but I did hang out and chat a while, and got good vibes. The engineers who assisted him seemed to like him.

Really nice guy, worked with him at Oceanway once many years ago. I think he listens louder than anyone I know.

I assisted Dave in Oceanway/Record One studio B, some rock band who I can't remember. Probably in about 1998. Deafeningly loud Tannoy's. No I haven't worked with Battlecat - he did the last Boo ya tribe record right ?

Easy there, Rob...

Was just making a joke about how loud Battlecat monitors!
He is a producer who does a lot of West Coast Crip Hop... Snoop
I assure you that no one listens louder longer!

I used to assist for Dave over at Larrabee all the time...probably the nicest guy I had the pleasure of working with, very down to earth. It's funny the only gear I remember him bringing was a GML Eq and an spx 990.
As far as his style, his whole thing is pushing up faders and carving the whole mix into place as opposed to soloing every instrument. I also recall he used to buss drums in parallel to a pair of 160x compressors and distressors every time.

Very eclectic, Part Beck , but only in terms of recycling the old.
We don't use samples except when we using sampling techniques on our own music. Quiet a bit of strings in Beatles recycled Beck kind of way, but with harder edge. Very song orientated

I was working in the room across the hall from Battlecat and it was still loud in my room!

Johnny "J" of Tupac fame brought me into a studio one day to check out some mixes he was going to have me master. I had some ER-15 musician's ear plugs with me and had to discretely insert them after a minute. Great material though.

David is pretty loud too, but not as loud as these others. Generally speaking, a bunch of guys listen way too loud for their own good. Advice to assistants: always keep earplugs with you.
