Doug Cave

“Another fantastic track, the mix is incredible”

Optimum Mastering

Doug makes music in his ever expanding home studio, filled with synthesisers, effects pedals and microphones, many hand built or modified by himself. Ears wide open and both feet firmly in the leftfield, Doug loves working with other artists to explore the possibilities of their music in its recorded form.

As well as working on new projects with exciting artists and producing his own records, the studio also lends itself well to remote sax, piano and synthesiser recordings. Get in touch if you need some noises.

Featured below are Latest highlights from Doug's discography, as well as deep dives into recent record productions and remote sessions and exciting upcoming projects!

RECENT WORK - HANNAH NICHOLSON

“Ethereal melodies, mixed with piano and synths. Tours of Montreal, New York and Tokyo, you’re about to hear reflections of her life so far…”

BBC Radio 6 Music

Keen to explore some sonic possibilities beyond their current piano/vocal incarnations, Hannah and Doug began working on her music. After some initial success, Doug reworked and arranged the tunes into new alt-folk imaginings, leaving the piano/vocal core in place but surrounding them in an ethereal world of synthesisers, tape samples and found sound. Mastered at Optimum, the work now comprises her 4 track EP ‘Hotel Elevators’.

RECENT WORK - REMOTE RECORDING

Throughout the pandemic, many musicians made the switch to remote recording sessions to keep things working. With a fully stocked studio and penchant for pop sax, Doug dived right in! Here are a selection of sax solos performed remotely, all recorded throughout the lockdown period.
