In the mid 90’s…
November 4th, 2015

In the mid 90’s anything was possible in music, Real World Studios and Real World Records became the hub of this revolutionary time in world music. Nothing expressed this better than the Real World recording weeks that gave rise to the Afro Celt Sound System. I am really indebted to Peter Gabriel and Realworld for allowing me to make the 1st Afro Celt Sound System record back in 1994. Realworld have an incredible vision and groundbreaking philosophy. They give a huge amount of support to all us mavericks and outsiders of the mainstream music industry and I’ve now in turn gone on to start my own label ECC Records. It just seemed natural for Dave Botterill, the 1st ACSS mixing engineer and myself to return to Real World to finish the mixing last week. It’s a return to source.
