Mixing with Cenzo Townshend - Focal SM9s!
Cenzo Townshend, has recently installed Focal SM9 monitors in his Decoy Studios in Suffolk.
"It's not often, that manufacturers' tag lines mean anything in the real world, but when Focal say: "listen to your music, not your speakers" they're not kidding. I listen 'on' my SM9s... not 'to' them. They don't fatigue my ears, so I actually enjoy listening to music on them."
Cenzo started at Trident Studios, in the 80s, assisting Spike Stent and Alan Moulder, and has gone on to be one of the UK's top engineers.
He has mixed countless best selling albums and singles from artists including U2, Snow Patrol, Elbow, Florence & the Machine, Kaiser Chiefs, Everything Everything, Friendly Fires, Ben Howard and many more.
This month alone he has seen success with The Vaccines Come Of Age album entering the album charts at number 1 and the Maccabes album Given To The Wild being nominated for a Mercury price and for Q best album of the year.
