PSNEurope launches Next Generation studio spotlight

Our Next Generation programme will shine a spotlight on the most exciting emerging talent in the studio sector

PSNEurope is delighted to announce the launch of its Next Generation studio spotlight, in association with Genelec – a brand new initiative that will shine a spotlight on the most exciting emerging talent from the studio sector.

As part of its ongoing commitment to championing and supporting the future of the studio sector, PSNEurope is compiling a rundown of some of the most potent breakthrough talent in the market, encompassing producers, mix engineers and mastering engineers. Spanning the full spectrum of styles, genres and budgets, our aim is to profile the incredible, often unsung, work being carried out behind the desk across the industry.

The Next Generation list will be presented in the form of a print supplement included in the May edition of PSNEurope, in which we will feature profiles on the selected individuals. This will also be published across all of our digital platforms – website, social media, newsletter, digital edition etc.

How do I get involved?

To be considered for inclusion, we ask all entrants to provide, in writing, examples of significant career progression over the past 12-18 months, such as client rosters, details of particularly challenging/innovative/high-profile projects they have been a part of and any awards/prizes they have won or been nominated for. In essence, an outline of demonstrable career development during this time frame. To put yourself forward, please email PSNEurope editor Daniel Gumble on [email protected] by Monday, March 30.

Who can enter?

Absolutely anyone. There is no barrier to entry and anyone is free to put themselves, or someone they know, forward. All we ask is that submissions clearly detail key areas of career progression.

“The standard of talent currently emerging in the studio sector is truly exceptional,” said Gumble. “And as a hub for the most exciting engineers and producers in the industry, it is PSNEurope’s duty to recognise and support those shaping its future. The Next Generation initiative represents the latest in our ongoing commitment to highlighting the very best the business has to offer.”

Partnering with PSNEurope for our Next Generation spotlight is studio monitor giant Genelec, whose PR director, Howard Jones, commented: “Genelec has always had a strong commitment to fostering the next generation of studio engineers, since they are so obviously the lifeblood and future of the recording world. From our annual sponsorship of the MPG Breakthrough Engineer award through to the Ilpo Martikainen Scholarship program that we run in conjunction with the AES each year, we see this as an essential part of giving back to the industry. Hats off to Pro Sound News for this initiative – for us, getting involved was a no-brainer.”
