Alex Hurr

Engineer | Mixer | Producer

Recording and mix engineer based in Bristol, UK and co-owner of Axe & Trap Studios.

I’ve been recording and producing music in the Somerset and Bristol area since the age of 14. Being part of loads of bands such as The Culture, The Somerset Youth Jazz Orchestra and Stone Pictures, I had the chance to gig and record music at a young age. In recent years I’ve completed a degree in Audio and Music Technology BSc (Hons) from the University of the West of England and started a recording studio with two friends called Axe and Trap Studios. I’ve had the pleasure of recording a lot of wonderful people such as Jamie Cruickshank and High Climbers and look forward to many more years of it.

“Alex, i think you did a spectacular job on this EP and it was an absolute pleasure to work with you. A true gent and an incredible ear and understanding to gel that sound together. So grateful pal…”

“Alex is a great live sound engineer and overall event technician. As The Students’ Union hosts such a variety of events, Alex has worked on everything from a full stage set up, including rigging our lighting and sound to a professional standard, to pub quiz nights and acoustic evenings. Alex has worked with some of the bigger names coming through The Students’ Union, from S Club, to Ollie Locke and conducts himself in a very professional manner at all times.”
