THE MASTER OF MASTERING
Herbie Powers is a guy whose name is said with great respect among musicians and record collectors all over the world. He has become legendary for his trademark, comments and remarks that he always put on "his" records. He is also the guy who turned the vinyl records he mastered into a loud and pumping bass experience.
SHAPING THE SOUND OF MODERN MUSIC
Few men have shaped the sound of modern music like Herb Powers Jr. Renowned around the world for his deep pumping bass and crisp highs that feel so close you can almost touch them. While Herb masters across all styles of music, his trademark touches have defined the sound of disco, house, r 'n' b and hip hop since the late '70s. Aside from the music, and his pursuit of cutting records as loud as possible, perhaps his most recognizable legacy is the vinyl graffiti he wrote in the dead wax of the records he cut. Finding the inscription 'Herbie Jr' and a smiley face on your 12"single is a hand-written mark of quality.
