Produced independently by the band, with David Houston (Lead Guitar) spearheading the recording and production of the album,

which took place at Sound And Motion Studios and Twelve Eleven Studios in Cape Town.

It was mixed and mastered by South African producer now based in Canada Dylan Ellis, who was responsible for Hokum’s masterpiece The Money Eaters.

 

“Dylan Ellis was super nice to work with, he was super calm and professional and made it easy to translate what we wanted in the sound into the mix” – Danny Harris, drums.
