Colin OOOD ( mastering)

Colin (aka Colin OOOD) has always had a passion for music and for as long as he can remember he has been driven to write, record and perform. He started piano lessons in 1975 at the age of 5, but not before meeting his first synthesiser at the Exeter University Department of Music's open day, which he found more interesting than the piano on which it was resting.  He wrote his first piano piece at the age of six or seven and joined his first band at the age of fifteen after helping pay for his own birthday present of a Roland Juno 6 synth.  

 Since then Colin has extensive experience in music production, studio mixing and mastering and performing:

- working as studio engenier of Exeter College Studio

-  being co-writer, keyboard player and programmer on a project following closely the KLF's recipe for famouse #1 success "The Manual", 

producing music and sound effects for computer games (including one of the very first PC CD-ROM games)

his track 'Mendax' was featured on Phantasm's first ever compilation "Hard Trance + Psychedelic Techno", an album which has been referred to as "a reference for the start of the Goa movement

- In september 1994 in Oxfor after meeting Steve Callaghan and Nigel Bradbury they formed legendary psychedelic trance band Out Of Our Depth ( mostly known as O.o.O.D

while in 2004 Colin formed a side-project named Voice of Cod with friend and DJ Andrew Humphries.  Together the pair wrote and released albums in 2005 and 2008 on Organic Records; their 2005 release "We Are Free" was the first album Colin had mastered since OOOD's second CD release in 1999, and the results garnered enough praise to provide a springboard for his alternative career in mastering and post-production.

Colin is now the regular mastering engineer for an ever-expanding list of record labels and we happy to have him on Vertigo Space Ship !
