Dub Narcotic Studio is a blank slate environment. It's a place one can go to erase one's preconceptions about what music is, how it is made, how a record is made, how instruments should be played, etc. The results are frighteningly attractive, revelatory, and bewitching. Ian Svenonius (Chain & The Gang, Make Up, Nation Of Ulysses, Weird War)
Sometimes what's needed is to gauge whether a vocal take has the right energy, to help find the perfect synth sound for that NKOTB cover, or to just provide a comfortable atmosphere and let inspiration take its course.
