Spike has had another great year and continues to be one of the worlds most in demand Mixing engineers. Part of his unique talent is his ability to bring out the best in all genres, shown in the submissions for this award, which range widely from Stormzy to Foals. In between these he has worked on other projects too numerous to include, such as a number 1 single from Liam Gallagher ‘Shockwave’ and number 3 single (number 1 R&B) for Mabel ‘Don’t call me up’. He has also found time to work on the soundtrack for the Rocketman movie, Muse, Bastille, James Bay and The Kaiser Chiefs. Spike’s musical approach, attention to detail and dedicated work ethic, ensure that he always works with the Artist to achieve a mutual vision and the ultimate result. He doesn’t just tidy up what he’s been sent, but enjoys the challenge of changing and adding things and giving it the ‘Spike magic touch’! In July he received the huge honour of being awarded an honorary Doctorate at the London College of music.
