- Words: Glenn Jackson
A veteran producer and the driving force behind the Wagon Repair imprint, Mathew Jonson has opened up the doors to his enviable studio space in a new video. Appearing as part of Electronic Beats' ongoing Slices series, the 10-minute clip finds the Canadian-born, Berlin-based artist giving a tour of his compact production space, which appears to be filled to the brim with a number of high-quality drum machines, hardware synths, FX units, modular racks, and an analog mixing desk. Throughout the course of the video, Jonson discusses how he is able to make sense of, and together use, the array of pieces in his arsenal, while also emphasizing that he aims to strike a balance between both the analog and digital sound worlds in his productions.
