RSR303 - Justin Perkins - Mystery Room Mastering Tips for Home Studio Mixing & Mastering

Recording Studio Rockstars

My guest today is Justin Perkins a mastering engineer based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin who has worked on remastering projects for The Replacements, En Vogue, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, and mastering projects for Michael Franti &  Spearhead, Tommy Stinson, The Gaslight Anthem, Smoking Popes,  Anberlin, Screeching Weasel, The Mr. T Experience, and thousands of other independent bands and artists around the world.  Before transitioning to mastering full-time he also spent time at Butch Vig’s Smart Studios in Madison Wisconsin recording and mixing a  number of projects, and has been working full-time in the audio field for nearly 20 years. His studio Mystery Room Mastering has been in business since 2009.  Growing up and playing in bands in the midwest is what helped  Justin formulate a career in audio and ultimately led to playing bass for a time in the band Screeching Weasel, as well as playing bass for Tommy Stinson’s solo shows, and the relaunch of Tommy Stinson’s post-Replacements band called Bash & Pop who released a new album in 2017 on Fat Possum Records and performed on The Late  Show with Stephen Colbert.  Aside from mastering tons of singles, EPs, and albums, Justin also masters nearly all the content for The License Lab which is a library music company based in Milwaukee Wisconsin, and recently started doing a monthly livestream for Steinberg Media to help both new and current users of WaveLab Pro get a better understanding of how to use it.  Justin has also written a number of articles for the popular website  The Pro Audio Files on the topic of mastering, preparing for mastering,  and an overview of what types of master files you may need for various release formats.

30 – Justin Perkins (The Obsoletes, Yesterday's Kids, The Screwballs)

My First Band Podcast

Even if you don't know who Justin Perkins is, you're more than likely aware of his work. Perkins owns and operates Mystery Room Mastering, a Milwaukee-based business that masters a wide variety of Wisconsin (and Midwestern) releases, as well as albums from the likes of The Replacements, Bash & Pop, The Mr. T Experience, and many other acts from all around the world. But long before he was working on records for some outstanding bands, he was in a few of his own amazing musical projects. Recently, Perkins allowed My First Band host Tyler Maas into his basement studio (a.k.a. "Mystery Room East") for a long and informative discussion about the interesting and nuanced field of mastering, as well as his decades of experience on-stage playing in bands like Yesterday's Kids, Obsoletes, and stints with Screeching Weasel, Tommy Stinson's Bash & Pop project, and many other notable outfits. Along the way, Perkins talked about forming a band with his babysitter and his time working at the legendary (and now-closed) Smart Studios in Madison. Meanwhile, Maas reminisced about being a huge Yesterday's Kids fan in high school. My First Band is sponsored by Boulevard Brewing and Bradford 2020: A Charity Calendar. The show is edited by Jared Blohm. You can listen to My First Band on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, and wherever else you get podcasts. Music used in this show comes courtesy of Devils Teeth (“The Junction Street Eight Tigers”), Yesterday's Kids ("Nothing Gold Can Stay"), and Obsoletes ("Wish It Never Came").
