_ JOHN ROMEO
MIX ENGINEER, RE-RECORDING MIXER + COMPOSER
It was apparent from an early age that John was fated for a life lived in sound and music. A plectrum necklace was John’s most beloved sleeping aid as todler and wasn’t long before he was re-wiring his parents’ home sound system and guitar amps, experimenting with tape machines and vinyl transfers.
By his teens, John was writing and refining his musical craft (playing guitars, bass, keyboards) in recording studios and on stages across Sydney… And a noisy “post-grunge, alternate pop/rock” group was the beginning of the electric creative synergy that John shares with Adam Alexander to this day.
With a Music Degree majoring in Performance, Improvisation and Technology, and a heart of gold - John is a respected and in-demand collaborator. A gifted musician, arranger, and technician, all of which inform his approach and drive his passion for crafting inspired and timeless sound mixes.
GAVIN DODDS _
Composer + Music Producer
Gavin cut his teeth in London in the early 90’s. A stalwart of the Acid Jazz scene. His first notable break came as guitarist for Jamiroquai, both in the studio and on the road. He toured extensively promoting Jamiroquai’s first two record breaking albums.
Gavin’s next venture was with his own act Samuel Purdey signing to Sony in the mid 90’s. Whilst not gaining the commercial success the band deserved, the critical acclaim has never wained. Some 25 years since it’s initial release, the album “Musically Adrift” has been re-released 5 times.
Gavin then teamed up with old Jamiroquai bandmate Darren Galea and drummer Richie Stevens to form Spacemonkeyz. After hearing their remix of “Tomorrow Comes Today,” Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn, commissioned the trio to remix the Gorillaz debut album. “Laika Come Home” was released in 2002, and soon became a firm fan favourite. Cuts from the record still feature in Gorillaz live performances to this day.
A move to Australia followed where he teamed up with Bamm Bamm Wolfgang to collaborate on music for film and advertising.
Gavin's latest musical venture is Mighty Mezz, a production duo with Adam Alexander - whose funk / soul / pop debut album “Let’s Go, Shorty!” is OUT NOW via BMG (UK).
