The 1975’s .’Notes On A Conditional Form.’ Jon has been instrumental in the production, recording and evolution of the band’s sound. Working with them throughout the entire writing, experimentation, demoing and production process on .’Notes..’ – he helped the band focus and define the sound of this album. From the outside, Jon’s contribution might mistakingly be overlooked or dismissed – but it’s really about time that the wider industry take note and acknowledge a key member of the recording and production process for arguably one of the most groundbreaking records of the last 10 years – inspiring a whole generation of other artists / bands / producers / records. The aforementioned is just the tip of the iceberg – Jon’s successful streak of the last 18 months has included Mix co-prod credits across records from Beabadoobee, No Rome, and Rina Sawayama.

.’Given that I’m quite clearly nominating myself here, I’m going to go with ‘wild optimism’ as the reason I deserve an MPG. Jokes aside I feel like the work I’ve been doing is of a high standard (The 1975 album I co-produced and recorded went to No.1 on the UK album charts, the Rina track went number 1 on a local Japanese/Tokyo radio chart, the Beabadoobee EP listed there set her up to release her debut album which I also mixed and has received a lot of positive attention) and it would obviously be really nice to have that recognised. I’ve applied in a few different categories here, simply because I’m not sure which one I’m most appropriately suited for. The breakthrough engineer category permits mix credits and mixing forms a fair proportion of my professional diet and I would love for those to be considered..’
