Putting the Em in PMC

With two albums on this year’s Mercury Prize shortlist, producer Emre Ramazanoglu has changed up his studio monitoring.

Biggleswade, UK (September 7, 2018)—Producer Emre Ramazanoglu, whose client list is a who’s who of contemporary music, has purchased a pair of PMC twotwo8 monitors for his studio at Hoxa HQ, a boutique facility in London’s West Hampstead that was established by writer/producer Jimmy Hogarth.

Ramazanoglu—known to his friends as Em—is in demand as a producer, engineer and mixer and as a drummer, programmer and songwriter. During his 20-year career, he has worked with a diverse range of artists, including Richard Ashcroft, Kylie Minogue, Paloma Faith, Sia, Carly Rae Jepson and others. Two of his recent album projects—for Noel Gallagher and Lily Allen—have been shortlisted for the 2018 Mercury Prize. He has also scored music for films, released four albums with his spiritual jazz band, Ill Considered, and produced soundtracks and commercial scores for haute couture shows and high-end brands such as McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Ghost, Givenchy, Tommy Hilfiger, Armani and Gucci.

Alongside his new PMC monitors, Ramazanoglu’s studio is crammed with equipment including a 32 I/O Avid Pro Tools HDX rig, a selection of UAD Apollo interfaces, two UAD Satellites, various preamps and processors from manufacturers such as Neve/Focusrite, API, Buzz, DAV, Culture Vulture and Dynamite, and a selection of musical instruments including a full drum kit, bass and baritone guitars.

He decided to upgrade his monitoring to PMC twotwo8 speakers after hearing a pair in Alan Moulder’s studio. “They are incredibly detailed and have great volume and a nice, full range,” he says. “As well as being musical and exciting, they remain proper reference monitors that suit everything I throw at them.”

“Adding PMC twotwo8 monitors to my set up is allowing me to mix faster and better than ever before,” he says. “I feel like I’m really inside the mix when sitting between them. They are exactly as I remember them from Alan Moulder’s studio and I couldn’t be happier.”
