The drum sounds were recorded at United Recording’s iconic Studio A in Hollywood using a blend of old school studio techniques and new school tweaking. They were then given Butch’s unique processing treatment, running through a bespoke selection of analogue and digital preamps, compressors, stompboxes and more at his home studio ‘GrungeIsDead’.


Butch Vig is all at once a musician, a songwriter and a record producer. Best known as the drummer and co-producer of the alternative rock band Garbage and the producer of the seminal albums including Nirvana’s “Nevermind”, Smashing Pumpkins’ “Siamese Dream” and Green Day’s “21st Century Breakdown”, he is famed for his pioneering approach to producing modern drum sounds.
