Following the massive one-year anniversary lesson with Kane Churko for Papa Roach‘s “Face Everything and Rise”, NAIL THE MIX returns in December with a huge track – Gojira‘s sledgehammer-heavy classic “Toxic Garbage Island” – with The Way Of All Flesh producer Logan Mader at the helm. Mader and NTM are handing the reins over to YOU, the NAIL THE MIX subscriber, to re-mix the entire track yourself. When you hear a Gojira song, there’s no questioning who’s distinct sound is blasting through the speakers. With that said, are you ready to prove you’ve got the chops to make this mix your own?
NAIL THE MIX‘s Eyal Levi states,“When The Way Of All Flesh by Gojira came out, it was one of those WTF moments in terms of power, energy, aggression, punch and power in a Metal mix. I know that for myself and many of my peers, tracks off that album became some of our go-to reference mixes for what metal should sound like, to this day! To actually have Logan Mader walking us through how he mixed it, along with getting to work with the actual tracks by one of my favorite Metal bands of all time is not only a professional milestone for NAIL THE MIX, but a personal one as a fan of music.”
Logan Mader adds, “I’m stoked to NAIL THE MIX of a Gojira song I originally worked on nine years ago! Gonna start from scratch and approach it from a new perspective. I’ll be competing with myself on a mission to beat the original master! I’m really looking forward to the real-time interaction with NTM community during the session. Gonna be a blast!”
In addition to receiving Mader’s real multi-tracks/stems to practice mixing “Toxic Garbage Island” at your home or studio, those who get access to December’s NTM class can take place in a user judged mix competition and potentially win over $1000 of gear from Kush Audio!
