However much those Metropolis Studios folk tried to put off our Matt from a job in the recording world, it clearly didn't bother him.
Endless night-shifts on front desk, a few time-wasting Hip Hop millionaires and God-knows how many days in Miloco's assortment of rooms later,
Mr. Paul has become an exciting and fast-rising remixer / engineer / producer with a rapidly growing CV to sit on.
Get to know one of the new generation of Miloco superstars! Matt Paul
From the sunny skies of Melbourne, to the smoky streets of London, came Daniel. Here was a kid with a gameplan. He wanted to cure his itchy feet and build on his
experiences back down under with such studio gods such as Nick Launay. He decided Miloco might be able to help his quest, and weren't we glad of it? He's now
out of the traps and working with a whole load of great bands, in of course, a whole load of great Miloco studios...
... but we should stop there and let Daniel takeover on his own much-deserved MILC plug. Daniel Rejmer
One of our senior assistants, and now member of the recently-established Miloco roster of in-house engineers, Adrian has been everywhere of late, from working on the
Razorlight mixing sessions for Slipway Fires
in Miloco's Engine Room, to indulging in his expert area of SSL desks at the phenomenal Alpha Centauri room at Battery.
So, Mr Breakspear has certainly been around the block recently, no doubt getting his hands on all sorts of tasty bits of Miloco gear... perfect timing then to catch up with him to feedback on
Adrian's world of Dynatrons, tombolas and studio-level human trafficking: It's all over here...!!
Catherine has recently joined the ranks of Miloco's super-squad of assistant engineers. Having already established herself as part of the team
at Flood and Alan Moulder's Assault & Battery 2 studio, Catherine of course crossed paths with Miloco when we hooked up with the
Battery crew to usher in the life of London's most awesome new tracking studio. We happened to have a few questions of interest tucked in our back pockets,
and Catherine was clearly well-prepared, not least to mention willing to answer them!

Our next member of staff to be given the customary cross-examination from MILC magazine
is one Jon Olliffe, who now lines up on Miloco's new in-house engineer management roster. Jon discusses
the usual topics: great musical memories, (and of course the odd forgettable ones), his personal recommendations
on recently-used pieces of gear, the sheer relief of not having any involvement in the making of stressful
Fleetwood Mac albums, and a lot lot more...

At the time of interview, Matt has completed almost exactly two years of fine work with Miloco,
so the following chinwag
should be a fitting celebration of our anniversary!!. Matt's range of talents have got him
gigs with the likes of Sugababes,
The Darkness, Akira The Don and Ms. Dynamite, as well as a selection of mixing credits on
BBC Ident music.
But there's no better person to teach you a lesson in Foster than the man
himself. So without much further ado, over to Matt.
We snagged a few precious moments with metal and rock engineer/producer par excellence, Mr Matt Hyde.
He's been metal legend Colin Richardson's right hand man for the last few years, working on for mega-selling
projects like Trivium, RoadRunner All-Stars, Bullet For My Valentine and many more. But he's also run the desk
(or indeed the whole show) for the likes of Foy Vance, Fightstar, The Bright Space and Crash Car Burn. So
for the full story, stick your tattooed 'n' pierced mouse on this:
Matt Hyde profile.
More often than not seen in the company of Mr and Mrs Dub's favourite son, Steve, Ben's been busy this last year
with the likes of The Spinto Band, Sunshine Underground, Boy Kill Boy, Madness, Fink and the Happy Mondays.
His super-relaxed demeanour and ability to bring a special dimension to each and every project he works
on has prompted sections of the media to coin the phrase "the Thack Attack" to describe his style.
Not really, that is of course codswollop. Anyway, to learn a little about our Ben, click on the little

Every 3-4cm down this superlative webpage of studio-folk mugshots, we introduce you, one by one, to Miloco's wonderful array of staff. And, lordy, are they a splendid bunch - there's
not one of them without a mantelpiece crowded with Golden Heart awards from Esther Rantzen. Several also receive monthly donations
for their 'sterling work for humanity and the earth in general' from grateful anonymous benefactors, and are regular recipients
of cash prizes for their 'rip-roaring sense of humour and fair play'. Really, they put us to shame.
This March we snuck into the affections of Pete Hofmann, a man with more notches on his CV bedpost than is surely polite.
So to discover all about his career so far, as well as the Oscar-nominated film that reduced him to awkward tears, his favourite
kitchen utensils and the ne'er fading gift to the world that is Robert Smith, click this way: Pete Hofmann

What can we say about our staff?
Well, no less than that they're the cat's pyjamas, the bee's knees, the dog's
bollards and more alternative animal-themed expressions of gloriousness than you can shake a shimmering shiatsu-trained Shih Tzu at. And,
wonder of wonders, they're ours to share with you.
Time to snuggle up to one Finn Eiles, fast-rising engineer de rigour to indie types everywhere. Which is his favourite gatefold sleeve,
I hear you ask? And just how does he feel about fried food? What about his musings on wardrobe-accessed fantasy worlds? Is there, in fact, any
subject matter of significance that isn't covered in this staff profile? Click here
