A new recording studio, a new record label, and a new record allow John Hughes to step out from the familiar
surroundings of Hefty Records, the label he founded in 1996, to strengthen his creative partnership with 1320
Though Hughes has collaborated with label-founders STS9 for years, this marks his first official release on 1320 - an alliance long in the making, given both parties' shared mission of creating and supporting new music under artist-run labels. Like Hefty, 1320 is an independent, musician-run collective that stresses cooperation between the artist
As Hughes explains, "I wanted this recording to have a live, gritty sound, so I took it outside of the computer as
much as I could. It was mixed through a board to tape, and the synths are all analog. Within the context of an electronic record, the live performances also help give it a warm, organic feel."
When it came time to edit and mix the tracks, Hughes looked to vibraphonist Rick Embach, who was
involved in the sessions from the earliest stages, as well as his old friend Joshua Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv. Hughes brought his
recording sessions to Eustis' studio in Chicago, and together they mixed the tracks thorough an analog mixing
board and then to two-track tape, giving the album the finishing touches and appropriate analog "glue" it required.
