The hotly tipped Jake Bugg debut album has shot into number 1 in the album midweeks. Produced and mixed by Mike Crossey (Gotham Producers) at Motor Museum, Liverpool. Mike’s previous work includes the Artic Monkeys, Tribes, Foals and more recently Ben Howard. The album was also mastered at our mastering studio24-96 by Robin Schmidt, previously mastering for Emeli Sandé, Mumford and Sons and The Black Keys to name but a few.
18-year-old Jake was born and raised in Clifton, and though too young to remember in full the attack of Brit pop in the 90′s is clearly heavily influenced by the likes of Oasis, the La’s and hints of lyrical genius not dissimilar to The Libertines. Taking the album away from the stereotype of larger drinking that, Brit pop so often has, Jake works through his tracks with an element of 60′s class, mirroring the likes of Dylan and Donovan. Its hard to believe listening through all the trials and tribulations in the album that this wasn’t written by a man in his eighties, let alone a boy who has barely left school.
