Let's capture YOUR sound
Stereo Lunch is an audio mixing studio created by lead engineer and producer Chris Hughes. We are based in Los Angeles and San Francisco. By utilizing state of the art analog and digital equipment, Stereo Lunch will make your music sound the very best it can, and take your project to the next level.
Share your passion
You have invested time and energy into your art, and while investing into a professional mix can be a tough decision, it is one of the most rewarding. The goal of Stereo Lunch is to take your vision, inspirations and creativity, blend them together and amplify them into a sonic experience that is uniquely you.
What's the process?
The first step is to fill out our booking form. Then we can take the song files digitally, or help instruct you on how to best send them to us. Once we have the tracks we will typically have a mix ready within 48 hours. Great mixes are equal parts technical and creative. We can guarantee that your mix will be superb on a technical level, but if for whatever reason our artistic interpretation of your song doesn't line up with your expectations, just let us know! We are happy to try a new treatment and won't be satisfied with the mix until you are.
Our approach to mixing
Modern meets vintage. In the current era of music production, digital audio technology allows us to do some pretty amazing stuff! Yet there is something about analog tools that makes our ears very happy. For this reason, we use both. Every mix is digitally sequenced and analog summed, so your music will get the best of both worlds.

Stereo Lunch Mix
Chris loves making records! And he's been doing it since early 2010 when he took his first role in a recording studio. Since then, he has been capturing and mixing music for a wide variety of artists, and helping them reach their sonic goals. Chris has been able to work along side some of the top producers and engineers in the industry including Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, The Melvins), Jeff Saltzman (The Killers, Green Day, The Sounds), Piper Payne (Shannon and the Clams, Madam Gahndi), Jack Douglas (Aerosmith, John Lennon) and many more. While he has changed a lot since the beginning of his career, one thing has remained the same - his passion and sheer joy for mixing!
