Damian Taylor: Precision Editing, Building Community, and Where Productivity Intersects Creativity
Our guest this week is six time Grammy nominated producer, mixer, programmer, songwriter, and all round good human Damian Taylor.

His career has taken him around the global and his discography is filled with household names such as The Prodigy, Arcade Fire, The Killers, Temper Trap, and Bjork. In addition to his daily mixing and production projects, Damian has also recently started streaming production sessions live on Twitch, and has launched a social network for producers, engineers, musicians and music creatives called The Complete Producer Network.
