BimHuis Amsterdam

quite possibly my favourite mix position...

Alex has worked as house engineer for numerous venues in Edinburgh including La Belle Angele, Henry's Cellar Bar, The JamHouse, The MashHouse, Summerhall, The Venue, The Voodoo Rooms and Wilkie House, and as a result has been exposed to many styles of music thereby giving him a wide palette of past sounds and styles to draw upon.

He has travelled widely, and some of the venues that Make Him Happy are the Bimhuis in Amsterdam, Village Underground in London, L'Olympique in Nantes and Voor Uit in Gent.

"...A word too for the sound, which was a master-class in balance and perfection..."

Upcoming Concerts

Humcrush - Rest At Worlds End

live album recorded by Alex on tour onto HD24 multitrack and some direct stereo FOH tracks.

"...The third album from these two excellent musicians was recorded live at various European venues, although the high level of musicianship, focus on detail and high recording quality could easily lead you to think it would be a meticulously assembled studio recording..."
