Bob Brockmann and partner Yaron Fuchs, co-owners of the NuMedia NY Studios and Flatbush Records, regularly develop and produce new acts; most recently with Rahzel, a world-famous beat-boxer who has been featured with The Roots and Eykah Badu; Anwar Supastar, an MC from the school of NAS and Jay-Z; GTO, a young singer who draws on hip hop beats and socially conscious lyrics; and Maya Azucena, a singer who is burning up clubs and airwaves in New York City. As the production company’s primary mix engineer, Brockman used all five of Eventide’s Clockworks Legacy plug-ins on these acts’ projects and others on his own label, Flatbush Records.
“I think that the programmability of the plug-ins is their most exciting feature,” Brockmann said. “The hardware versions were always great-sounding but you couldn’t automate them, and with the plug-in versions,I am able to modify the sounds in real time to keep them fluid and interesting.”
As an engineer and mixer, Brockman has worked on numerous albums, singles, dance singles and remixes during the past 20 years, including with such artists as Debbie Gibson, Surface, Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, Craig Mack, the Notorious B.I.G., Babyface, Christina Aguilera, Aretha Franklin, Al Green, The O’Jays, Brian McKnight, Heather Nova, Jodeci, Faith Hill, Korn, Laurie Anderson, Linda Eder, Vanessa Williams, and many, many more. He also produces a number of acts and continues to be one of Manhattan’s first-call mixers. As a producer, his resume includes credits for producing or co-producing Black Uhuru, Kirk Franklin, Soulive, Ali, Babyface, Brooklyn Funk Essentials, Norman Brown, Wicked Queen and others.
Through NuMedia NY, Brockman and Fuchs have developed and produced ghetto funkster G.T.O., Indian singer/songwriter Sanjay, New Yorican R&B singer Lugo, female singer Maya Azucena and budding emcee Sneakas.
