New name and new studio! Welcome to the Digital Age!

Not 2 Sane Productions is now Digital Age Sound! After a long debate with myself, I decided to change the name of my production company and studio. I have also spent the past few months building a new recording studio in the North Seattle neighborhood of Lake City. For many years, I operated as an exclusive recording studio to Seattle Hip-Hop elite, but I have since decided to open to the public and make my top notch sound available to everybody. Regardless of genre or if it’s an audiobook recording, I have the gear and experience to make you sound AMAZING!

Check out some of the pics of my new spacious and professionally acoustically treated studio! Hit me up if you’re looking for that clean, top of the line, industry standard sound. My client list speaks for itself. I’m also working on a new online scheduling and deposit system, to make scheduling a breeze!

OK…so I’m a little late. I have a good reason though! I’ve spent the past few weeks putting the finishing touches on my brand new recording studio! More details to come!

Kind words from Ryan Lewis about D-Sane & Not 2 Sane Productions…

My good friend Ryan Lewis recently did a write up about me on www.macklemore.com describing my involvement in their music since 2009 when they began their journey to the top of the Hip-Hop charts. Check it out!

I can’t even remember when I first met D-Sane, it feels like quite a long time ago. Maybe some time between 2007-08? He had grown a reputation for being a go-to producer for many hip-hop artists in Seattle. Lots of my friends in the Seattle community had gone to him frequently to master their records/beats.

I remember going to his studio for the first time. I was like “DAMN!” at the site of a Sony C800G, a Kanye/Beyonce/Rihanna-level microphone you did not see often in Seattle. I’d never seen one. D-Sane had great taste.

D-Sane ended up being a huge piece of the picture, a big part of the team, in the beginning of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. “The Unplanned Mixtape,” “The VS. EP,” “The VS. Redux” — all albums he mastered. Ben and I didn’t have much money and he always made sure we were taken care of. He’s the type of guy that would answer the phone at any point in the night only to hear, “is there anyway you could master these songs in the next 12 hours, we’re on a time crunch” haha. He’d always make it happen. He’s one of the premier digital mastering engineers. I think it’s more challenging to find full control of industry-standard volume, limiting, EQ’ing and tonal changes in a digital master and D-Sane has always impressed me.

From there when the live shows started picking up he continued mastering our live instrumentals. He was an excellent resource to making sure things were consistent and tailored toward a live sound system. He was also an excellent ear in the process of mixing “The Heist” to get a second perspective on the mix. D-Sane also introduced us to Wanz, who went on to sing “Thrift Shop.”

Long story short, I’m writing this to give props to a good friend of ours and someone that worked hard for us before we had any name or credibility. Someone that was part of this from the beginning, supporting us and offering his skills. Beyond mastering, D-Sane also makes beats. We’re excited to give shine to his official SFG Can’t Hold Us REMIX, he produced and mastered himself. If you’re looking for good family to work with, don’t hesitate to contact Not 2 Sane Productions and work with D-Sane.

Sorry for the delay!

It’s been months since I’ve updated my site! My apologies. I have been hard at work mastering the show tracks for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “The Heist” world tour, along with many other projects and grinding tough on Street Level Records (my indie label), which I just finished building a new website (v5) for. We also spent the whole month of October recording Mac Minati’s debut street album “Paranormal Mactivity” which we released on Oct. 31st and so far it has been getting rave reviews.

Lots more music to come, so be on the look out!!
