API 1608 GIVES LEGENDARY COUNTRY PRODUCER PAUL WORLEY HIS ANALOG “GOOSH”

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: Paul Worley has enjoyed a storybook career. Starting out as the proverbial studio gofer, making coffee, sweeping debris, and hoping for a big break, Worley advanced in small measure by serendipity and, in large measure, by his obvious talents, both musical and social. He went on to become a session guitarist, a vice president at Sony BMG, chief creative officer at Warner Bros. Records, and, perhaps most famously, the coveted producer of several legendary country music albums. Indeed, Worley has worked with Big & Rich, Lady Antebellum, and Martina McBride, and has earned two Grammys for his production on the Dixie Chicks’ Wide Open Spaces and Fly. more

GODFATHER OF HOUSE MUSIC MARSHALL JEFFERSON SPINS ON A METRIC HALO ULN-8

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS: Marshall Jefferson is an epic figure in the house music movement, having helped found the genre in Chicago in the mid-1980s. In fact, his “Move Your Body” is just as well known by its adopted title, “The House Music Anthem.” Other enduring hits include “7 Ways To Jack” and “Open Our Eyes.” Apart from his own work, Jefferson’s presence runs deep in the House, Acid House, and Deep House movements through his collaborations, productions and remixes. Now splitting his base between Chicago and the UK, Jefferson travels the world on a near-weekly basis for DJ engagements. He always brings (just) his laptop and his Metric Halo ULN-8 preamp/interface/DSP, which he uses both for the show and to make good on a backlog of remix requests back at the hotel. more
