Rotations: Studio Log Robbie Bronnimann is a UK based producer, remixer and performer who’s trademark euphoric trance sound first appeared in the 90’s as dba, who released 3 of their own albums as well as numerous critically acclaimed singles and remixes under that moniker& the subsequent tektonik^ project withAndy Ross. Since then he’s worked as a producer and writer for The Sugababes, Japanese signing Elixia and Howard Jones - with whom he regularly performs with an innovative laptop and Ableton Live setup. More recently, he’s been working on film scores as composer, collaborating with Andy Hunter on US releases Expelledand No Saints For Sinners.
Right now he’s working on an album for a major label, who have given him the enviable task of “making the record he wants to”. This will allow him to explore some more unusual musical avenues and production techniques, including live vocal processing and more real-time performance.
We have been invited to observe this process - both the highs and the lows, as he works in his well-equipped UK studio.
Based around Logic Pro on an 8-core Mac, Robbie uses an wide range of plugs and virtual instruments, although he also intends use this opportunity to free himself, to break of the box to utilize his healthy collection of real synthesizers.
To start off this journey, we visited his studio and chatted about the upcoming project.
