My name is Eric Broyhill, and I welcome you to MonsterLab.
Early in my career I had the opportunity, to record and mix many talented people. Artists such as; Deftones, The Mother Hips, Brotha Lynch Hung, Chk Chk Chk !!!, Seven Seconds, ZAO, Knapsack, Fillibuster, FAR, Tera Melos, and countless others.
In 1992, at one of California’s more notorious recording studios, Enharmonic, later known as “The Hangar”, I landed a job interview. The owners’ idea of an interview (John Baccigaluppi of Tape Op magazine) consisted of making sure I could handle a skateboard on the studio quarter-pipe! I landed the job with a few bruises to show! In essence, being thrown into the fire is how I learned the trade.
By the end of the decade I began taking an interest in acoustics, and the art of mastering. With some inspiration from acoustician Wes Lachot, I built and opened MonsterLab.
From this point, mastering took over. After the first year, MonsterLab was fully booked, forcing me out of the studio, and into mastering. Since January 2000, MonsterLab has completed well over 700 projects. Clients include Warner Bros, Sony, Kranky, Drive Thru Records, Sergeant House, Island, Sumerian, Vagrant, Domino Records, to name a few.
Today MonsterLab is part of a two room mastering facility, with the additional talent of engineer extraordinaire Jonas Ekstrom of Mastertone.se.

“Create dangerously. On the ridge where the great artist moves forward, every step is an adventure, an extreme risk. In that risk, however, and only there, lies the freedom of art.” – Albert Camus
