Chasing The Dragon's releases are so detailed, if you take the time to familiarise yourself with the subtleties of these reference-level recordings, the next time you make any changes, big or small, to your Hi-Fi system, the differences will be notable.
Mike Valentine is an ex-BBC sound engineer and is passionate about high-quality audio recording. If his name sounds familiar, he is also an internationally-renowned underwater cameraman. He has filmed underwater sequences for over 90 films, including 5 James Bond movies. His record label is one of very few that make direct-cut vinyl recordings of classical, jazz and big band music.
"There can be no question that Mike Valentine really knows what he’s doing as he pursues an “everything matters” philosophy that has consistently produced recordings that will impress the most demanding audiophiles. It’s also apparent that the Valentines’ management style in the studio is extraordinarily effective, destined to get the best from both the artists and recording professionals they work with."
