Jason Mitchell / Mastering Engineer

Jason Mitchell in the LOUD Mastering studio

After joining John Dent at LOUD Mastering some 15 years ago, Jason Mitchell has enjoyed establishing himself alongside one of the mastering industry greats. With a love of musical styles that surpises many (sometimes inluding himself!), Jason is just as keen to master folk rock or jazz trios as he would drum & bass and electro.

Working in LOUD's audio mastering room always provides a unique opportunity to strive for a new level of excellence, therefore keeping the client's next release his, and Mastering World's, foremost priority.

John Dent / Mastering Engineer

John Dent in the LOUD Mastering studio

John Dent has been awarded Mastering Engineer of the Year at the Music Producers Guild Awards 2014.

This is a huge accolade, especially as it is music producers and mastering engineers that vote for the winner, so this is truly the respect of his peers.

We have always said that John is one of the best mastering engineers in the UK (although we prefer the expression 'one of the baddest engineers in the land') so it's nice to have that confirmed by everybody else.

John Dent has been mastering for over 40 years and he's seriously good at it. His experience spans from cutting all the original Bob Marley records for Island Records in the late 1970s to mastering PJ Harvey's recent Mercury Prize-winning album, Let England Shake.
