It’s finally here – our first ever series with Jaycen Joshua! This unique set of videos uncovers the template and highly sought-after techniques used by the exceptionally talented mixer. Using a new ITB mix session of the hypnotic 2018 single ‘Malamente’ by Spanish artist Rosalía, Jaycen shows you how he managed to craft a fully digital mix that competes with his original console mix. He discusses and plays the source tracks, then demonstrates how he treated them using his innovative template and plug-in settings. Aside from the technical aspect, Jaycen tells of how his involvement in the project began, the collaboration with artist and producer, his sonic expression through personal taste, optimizing transients and voltage for perceived loudness, mastering, and more. To make this series even more special, we have featured the legendary Dave Pensado asking Jaycen some very pertinent questions about his approach!
Jaycen Joshua’s career in the music business began at age fifteen, when he began working at MCA and Motown records under the mentorship of Jheryl Busby. Later, he undertook a Marketing / A&R position at Dreamworks, then joined MTV as a show developer and Viacom in the advertisement division.
Longing for more engagement in the creation of records, he enrolled himself in the Los Angeles Recording Workshop. Within days of starting the course, he made the decision to devote his life to mixing, and soon landed an internship at Larrabee Recording Studios in North Hollywood. There, he became the assistant of all-star mixer Dave Pensado. The two began collaborating on mixes, teaming up to form the ‘Penua Project’ in 2006.
He soon positioned himself as one of the top mixing engineers in the industry. To date, he has worked with numerous high-profile artists including Mariah Carey, Justin Timberlake, Sean Combs, Jay-Z, Chris Brown, Miley Cyrus, Christina Aguilera, Justin Bieber, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, R. Kelly, Celine Dion, J-Lo, T.I., Usher, Michael Jackson, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Snoop Dogg, Mike Shinoda, Seal, Nas, Chris Brown and Whitney Houston
