Paul Tipler

 

From Tape to Hard Drive...

 

A Recording Engineer, Record Producer and Mix Specialist...

 

Raised in a small Northern town, life was dull until the sounds of the late 70's and early 80's punk and new wave scene infiltrated his brain...

 

After a 3 year marathon of job applications and interviews Paul eventually got his first teaboy/tape-op job in a busy London studio... After 18 months of living on a mattress in the studio loft and washing in the local swimming pool every day he saw daylight once more and moved on to bigger and better things with promotion to being in-house engineer at The Chocolate Factory working with many great acts including Squeeze and Julian Cope...

 

In 1990 The Chocolate Factory closed it's doors and Paul found himself working alongside producer Pat Collier at Greenhouse Studios and Eric Radcliffe at Blackwing Studios getting fully involved at the coalface of all sounds growing and emerging from the thriving London music scene...  As time passed and having picked up vast amounts of wisdom and experience from many amazing producers Paul started being hired to produce records himself...

 

From Leatherface, Kingmaker, Midway Still and Pop Will Eat Itself in 1990 through Elastica, Dr Feelgood, Placebo, House of Love and many more in the years that passsed he kept up with The latest scenes around...

 

The mid 90's saw Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster, Cable, Little Mothers, Reuben, Dogs Die In Hot Cars and Earl Brutus whoosh in and out of the revolving studio door...

 

As time passed the genres widened and a long term relationship with Stereolab blossomed along with other bands such as Mojave 3, Client, The Wonderstuff, Perfume, Forward Russia and many world fusion artists such as Transglobal Underground, Jah Wobble, Fun-Da-Mental and Talvin Singh...

 

As the industry and it's needs have changed so has Pauls role...

 

Fom Tape Machine to Hard Drive...after fifteen years working with tape, Paul embraced technology and moved into the digital age.   Without forgetting his past he has equipped his studio with the best of both analogue and digital equipment.

 

Now he works out of his own 'Unit 13 Studios' in the 'Press Play Complex' owned by Andy Ramsay from old friends Stereolab....  He continues to work with both long term friends and artists as well as finding and guiding the new breed of bands and musicians jumping on the treadmill of music that has carried him this far...
