This time, we sat down with the man, the myth, the legend, Mikaelin ‘Blue’ Bluespruce (@mixedbyblue). Blue is a Grammy Winning Engineer and record producer, a top respected name in the industry, and most importantly, a new father and a stand-up gentleman. Blue is a relatively reserved, calm dude, much like myself, but for the next 90 or so minutes we are going to take about how he is quietly making a dent in the music game with a nonstop work ethic. He has worked with prominent artists like Solange, Skepta, and those involved on the Hamilton Mixtape.
Style-wise, Blue does not look like your typical engineer. This dude dresses fly as shit to show up to the studio with the tapered joggers, fade on point, sneaker game stupid, and that’s who he is. He brings his own brand to the beat beyond just the moves he makes in the studio. When Blue touches a track, you know it’s him, and he’s here to tell you how he developed his own unique aesthetic. In this episode, Blue discusses his early creative experiences with music, the routine that leads to greatness, the creative process with Solange, pulling all-nighters in NYU studios, the flow state of engineering, and more.
