Chiswick, London, W4 1SY
Streaky began his career in the music industry as a professional DJ in the days of Acid House, specialising in Chillout and Balearic House, where demand for his sets took him abroad to countries such as Sweden, Ibiza and Spain.
As well as being a singer in a band, Streaky also started creating music in Cubase on his Atari, honing his talents for the finer points of music. He used these skills to produce tracks for film and TV, and also began remixing under the guises of Elephant and The Merry Wives for artists such as Groove Armada, The Stone Roses, Penguin Café Orchestra and many more.
In 1994 Streaky started work at Battery Studios in the CD Mastering department. Here he took the hands-on approach to mastering. During this time he mastered for A Tribe Called Quest, KRS 1, Mystikal, The Stone Roses, R Kelly, Backstreet Boys, Aaliyah, Fatboy Slim, Britney Spears, Groove Armada ‘Vertigo’ and many other artists on Jive & Zomba Records.
Streaky also developed a strong client base among London’s leading drum & bass, dance & garage producers, mastering club classics like Shanks & Bigfoot ‘Sweet Like Chocolate’, Azzido Da Bass ‘Dooms Night’, Neneh Cherry vs Dreem Teem ‘Buddy X’, Artful Dodger ‘Re-rewind’, Kinobe ‘Slip Into Something More Comfortable’ as well as tracks by Sonique, Inspiral Carpets, James Taylor Quartet, Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros and many more he can’t remember!
Streaky made the move to The Soundmasters in 2000 chiefly to extend his skills from CD mastering to include vinyl mastering. He swiftly developed a reputation as a talented drum & bass engineer, and he has cut records for Adam F, DJ Marky, J Majik, Ed Rush & Optical, Danny Wheeler and pretty much anyone who is worth their salt in the drum & bass scene!
Streaky has also built an impressive client list among bands, mastering albums such as Death In Vegas ‘Scorpio Rising’, Asian Dub Foundation ‘Enemy of the Enemy’, The Duke Spirit ‘Roll Spirit Roll EP’, as well as all the singles from Kasabian ‘Kasabian’, Embrace ‘Out Of Nothing’ and Snow Patrol ‘The Final Straw’. Other notable albums include 5.1 Surround Sound albums for Kasabian, Moby, Erasure, Depeche Mode, Dave Gahan, and Martin Gore.
In 2004 Streaky launched eMasters, an online mastering service aimed at independent producers, musicians and record labels, with Streaky at the helm as Chief mastering engineer. This was the first time a leading mastering studio in Europe had provided a fully online approach to professional mastering.
2007 was a great year for Streaky, mastering albums for Groove Armada (Sony BMG), The Go! Team (Memphis Industries), DJ Kentaro (Ninja Tune), The Resin Dogs (Hydrofunk) and Simple Kid (Country Gentleman) as well as singles for the likes of Lily Allen, Kate Nash, Dragonette , The Pipettes , Alexisonfire , Bat For Lashes and Adele.
