Shuta Shinoda

Hackney Road Studios/Strongroom

Engineer

Originally from Japan, Shuta studied Audio Engineering at SAE in London before starting his career working for several years in a major studio in Tokyo. In 2005 Shuta moved back to London to work at Bark Studios, home to a number of award-winning recordings for the likes of Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine and Star Trek. It was here that he really started to learn about vintage consoles, vintage hardware and the ‘UK sound’.

Shuta is a versatile engineer/mixer and has experience of working with some of the most distinctive projects in UK and Japanese music. He has worked with Tim Burgess (The Charlatans), John Coxon, Daughter (4AD), Farris (Horrors/Rough Trade), Ghostpoet (PIAS), Red Snapper (Warp/Matador/Lo), Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), and Youth (bassist of Killing Joke) and many others.
