MOTÖRHEAD Producer: 'My Job Was To Push Them To Their Limits, Physically And Emotionally'

Coming up on the first anniversary of Lemmy's passing, MOTÖRHEAD producer Cameron Webb and producer/engineer Warren Huart (AEROSMITH, ACE FREHLEY, THE FRAY) released a digital video through ProMix Academy, "Mixing Motörhead With Cameron Webb". In the clip, an excerpt from which can be seen below, Webb gives ProMix Academy a breakdown of MOTÖRHEAD's song "Electricity", takes us through the mix and gives us behind the scenes insights into the making of the song.

The video is an educational mixing course, but this one is unique in that it is also chock-full of insider stories and recording and production insights. On recording MOTÖRHEAD, Cameron says in the video: "It was never normal with these guys, it was never normal with Lemmy… They did what they wanted to do. Kind of... My job as a producer was to push them to their limits, physically and emotionally " He adds: "I never wanted to change them I just wanted to help make them the best MOTÖRHEAD they could be: they are unique, they do something special. Don't destroy it."

Webb first worked with MOTÖRHEAD on their album "Inferno" (2004) and has since worked with the band producing, engineering and mixing a total of eleven live and studio albums over 12 years. Webb's credits also include the likes of PENNYWISE, SOCIAL DISTORTION, MEGADETH, NOFX, SUM 41, THE AQUABATS, GODSMACK, BUCKCHERRY and DANZIG.

"I chose to work with Warren because he has a true love and respect for MOTÖRHEAD, and he is breaking new ground on how to reach out to the public and present a side of music that has always been hidden behind closed doors," Webb says.

In addition to his work as a producer and engineer, Huart aims to help people make great music by sharing the knowledge and experience he's accumulated over his near 30 years in the industry through Produce Like A Pro and ProMix Academy. Huart explains: "I want to demystify the recording process and show that there really isn't a difference between the 'professionals' and home recordists. We all share the same passion for music creation and our aim is to break down barriers and democratize the music industry."
