GPS is pleased to announce the signing of six-time Grammy-nominated producer, mixer, writer and programmer Damian Taylor. Taylor is best known for his collaborations with The Prodigy, Björk, Arcade Fire, The Killers, Temper Trap, UNKLE, Austra, Trust, Braids, and Adam Freeland. He most recently produced, engineered and mixed The Temper Trap’s long-awaited new album “Thick As Thieves” (Liberation/Glassnote) - reaching the #1 position on the ARIA Top 50 Albums in Australia.
Born in Canada, Damian Taylor’s formative years saw him traveling worldwide, affording him a broad creative perspective fundamental to his aesthetic approach in the studio. After relocating in the UK, he met producer/writer Guy Sigsworth in London, where they partnered on projects including Frou Frou’s “Details”, various Radio One playlisted remixes, and Björk’s seminal album “Vespertine”.
In the early 2000s, Taylor's freelance work included roles as a "silent member" for UNKLE and Adam Freeland, as well as production work on The Prodigy’s “Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned” and later on “Invader Must Die”. In 2005 Taylor was asked to work full-time with Björk as her engineer and programmer. The collaboration would span six years, two full albums, a world tour, and the world’s first iPad app-based album.
Taylor then moved to Montreal, Quebec, where he built his current studio "Golden Ratio", designed by acoustician John Brandt. Here, between larger projects for established artists such as Arcade Fire and The Killers, he was able to work with and develop new artists including Trust, Austra, Diamond Rings, Foxtrott, Mas Ysa, and Gems.
More recent work includes producing, co-writing, and mixing Love Thy Brother feat. Ariel Beesley “Love Me Better”, sessions with Arcade Fire, Trust, new artists Dizzy and Petra Glynt, and the aforementioned #1 album Temper Trap “Thick As Thieves”.
Damian will relocate to Los Angeles in September 2016.
