N-Dubz – “I Need You”
“I Need You” was the lead single from the platinum album “Against All Odds” and reached No.5 in the UK singles chart and No.1 in the UK dance chart in November 2009. It was mixed at Fisher Lane Studio in Surrey (owned by Genesis) in one all-night session. I went on to mix two tracks for the band’s next album “Love.Live.Life” (“Took It All Away” and “Skit”) at Hub II. Despite Dappy’s image, he and Fazer are very adept and serious in the studio and know exactly what they want from the mix. They’re also really nice guys – I arranged to take my boys to meet them backstage at a gig and they made a big fuss of us. I’ll always be grateful to them for “bigging me up” in front of my kids – I was cool for at least a week afterwards!
