Jonathan Moe, known around here as JMoe is one of Faultline’s most talented engineers and lately he’s been working with a lot class acts.
Grammy nominated artist Paul Wall dropped in to provide a track for Vic Da Baron’s new album, “The Hotbox”, which JMoe produced and is mixing down in Studio C.
JMoe recorded a song for 40 Keys, “No Love” featuring Houston, that’s been getting play on 106.1 FM KMEL and Hot 105.7 FM – due to the success of the track, they’ve been engineering, mixing, and mastering a new EP, also called “No Love”.
JMoe’s also recently worked with Flo on a song “2 Bad” featuring HBK Rossi, that’s been spinning on Hot 105.7 FM. Keep an eye out for the music video being released in two weeks.
Who loves to suppost local arts organizations? We do!
Root Division connects creativity and community through arts education, exhibition and studio space. This means that they teach art classes to youth and to adults, they have fantastic monthly art shows and they rent below-market-rate studio space to up & coming artists. Essentially, they are awesome. On October 23rd, they are having their 13th annual Art Auction, featuring art work from over 100 established and emerging Bay Area artists, including a silent auction with goods and services from all the best businesses around the Bay. That’s where we come in: we are offering up 8 hours of studio time in Studio C with an engineer in the silent auction. So spend a night wining & dining, support a vital local arts organization and if you are looking for some studio time, put in a bid!
This is the best reason we’ve ever heard of to visit San Jose:

We have to admit, when we heard that Afromassive had disbanded we were bummed. Their combination of traditional rhythms, jazz sensibility and modern electronic production yielded some of the fiercest dance music we’d worked on and after all the long hours stretching our Neve console to the max, it was a shame to think those delicious grooves might never make a booty shake.
But today we’re all smiles as Fill the Void is being released today. You might not be able to catch them live anytime soon but if you give a listen we bet you won’t be able to sit still…
Station & the Monster forged their heavy sound in Pennsylvania and then pulled up roots and to bring their unique blend of grunge rock west. Now based in Oakland, the trio crossed the bridge several times to track and mix their new EP, released today, with Yosh! here in Faultline’s Studio A.
Catch them live at the Elbo Room July 14th.
Have you wondered who provides the “Best Way to Hear Local Musicians Put Their Stamp on Classic Albums“? The SF Weekly has made that distinction clear by awarding UnderCover Presents with just that honor this week in their SF Weekly Best of Awards. Congratulations to UCP’s Founder & Co-Producer Lyz Luke, Co-Producer Yosh! Haraguchi and the hundreds of talented Bay Area musicians who make UnderCover possible.
Since 2006, THE NERV have been bringing a modern voice to the classic punk form. Their songs are driven by muscular instrumentals and punctuated by a provocative vocalist, lyrical and snarling by turns. Their live shows are fierce and loud. If you visit the studio this month and the walls are shaking, chances are it’s just THE NERV cranking out their third release.
Catch them live May 6th at the Knockout.
