Ron Murphy Detroit's Mastering Engineer

Just read this and thought I should pass it onto other people who have not heard.

From: http://jahsonic.wordpress.com/

RIP Ron Murphy (1948 - 2008), audio engineer of Detroit techno
January 14, 2008 by jahsonic

Ron Murphy (March 3, 1948 - January 13, 2008) was an American audio engineer at Detroitís NSC/Sound Enterprises. Murphy was responsible for the mastering of some of the most respected Detroit techno vinyl releases, for such labels as Underground Resistance, KMS, Metroplex, Black Nation, Direct Beat, Axis, Planet E, Basic Channel and many others.

Ron Murphy was the reason that the Detroit techno records sounded crisp and clear, in contrast to contemporary Chicago house music, whose records were mastered under the direction of Larry Sherman, and which sounded like they were recorded on sandpaper, due to his use of recycled vinyl.

New York house musicís records were mastered and pressed by Herb Powers, Jr., much to everyoneís satisfaction.

That's really sad news. I must own tens, if not hundreds of records mastered by Ron.

What a legacy Ron has left! Thanks for the music, Ron - your contribution to electronic music will continue to be enjoyed for many years.

One of the 'good guys' has left us...


edit - There's an interview with Ron here: http://www.soundenterprises.com/
Please note that this account is dormant for the time being. I apologise to all that have sent PMs - there are just not enough hours in the day!
