Founding member of Infamous Foreign Sound Society

Job: Film & motion picture composer, sound designer, foley, arranging & mixing, beat maker

Location: London, UK

Meek has a passion for true analogue gear. Sometimes he uses an Akai MPC 2000XL and TASCAM Portastudio 424 to sketch beats, old school style. He still likes the workflow.

“… It works for me. It helps with thinking outside the box, to be able to get as close to physically touching the sounds helps my creativity …”

“… the warmth, the sparkle and presence it gives to instruments when recorded; there’s something magical about it that is difficult to describe, it’s that ‘je ne sais quoi’, juice, swagger

A big fan of film, cinematic scores and soundtracks, this style comes through in Meek’s work and sound design.

Synths: Moog Voyager, Sub Phatty, DSI Prophet 12, Doepfer Modular System, Akai MPC 2000XL, RhythmWolf, Korg MicroKorgXL

Software: Logic Pro, StudioOne (current favourite)

Beat making setup: Has a hybrid setup a mixture of analogue outboard gear and digital gear such as soft synths/vsts. Its the best of both worlds, extremely flexible. His speciality within the team is sound design “that foreign sound” and sample/library creation.

Influences (Producers/Composers): Predominantly 90’s HipHop (Public Enemy, Pete Rock, DrDre, Preemo), Love the work of George Cllinton, Bootsy Collins, Nile Rodgers, Qunicy Jones, John Barry, Bernard Herman, Ennio Morricone, Danny Elfman, Trent Reznor, Rick Rubin.
