We’ve got Russ Russell (Dimmu Borgir, Napalm Death, Sikth) for an awesome conversation about how to build a long lasting production career, mix like a badass, and tons more.
Whether it’s a long lasting relationship with Napalm Death or tackling an insane live production for Dimmu Borgir Russ seems to have unlocked the secret to creating amazing career opportunities. We go over an hour before even getting to technical stuff (don’t worry gearheads, we go there too). You should probably take notes, because this is how you build the lifelong career that you want.
