Swedish mix engineer/producer Niklas Flyckt, who owns Khabang private studio, recently installed an SL 9000 J Series SuperAnalogue console and has been hosting top acts such as Amy Studt, Britney Spears, Clay Aiken and S Club’s Rachel Stevens.
A mixer for 22 years with an established international reputation, Flyckt has spent the past 10 of them at Khabang, a studio built on top of a former psychiatric hospital in the southern part of Stockholm. In the control room, the 56-channel console replaced a Neotek desk. “We’re incredibly busy here,” Flyckt said, “and I wanted a console that would satisfy the increasing demand for high quality, as well as the ability to cope with an arduous workload. I’m very familiar with SSL, having used an SL 4000 Series for recording and mixing on many occasions.”
Used primarily for mixing, Flyckt’s studio also features an 80-square-meter live area and an isolation booth. A string of international hit albums and singles including, most recently, Dannii Minogue (Put the Needle on It), Ms. Dynamite (Put Him Out) and Sophie Ellis Bextor (Get Over You).
