The Warlocks, Phranc, Scenario Rock, Greg Dulli, Rhino Bucket, Paul
Plagens,The Slum Lords, The Tyde and is currently is Brent Rademaker's

In 2004 Sloan
plans to launch a record label under the New King Sound name with
Fishbone headlining. Local favorites Lift Ticket and Shane Walsh
to follow on the new label. "I can offer the same promo people
that major indies use while offering more dedicated people who stand
behind the artist. Fishbone already has a huge fanbase, so the tour
will support the new record initially," says Jimmy.
vintage recording equipment, Sloan started buying and selling gear
in the early nineties. I "I kept my stash and thats
what The New King Sound is today. A lot of the old (Vintage Neumann
and AKG mics, Neve Mic-Pres, Fairchild limiters) and a bit of the
new (Pro Tools HD, Apogee 96khz 24bit converters). Lately, I have
been getting in to mastering. I realized I have the same gear and
just as good of a set of ears as the mastering elite of LA."
all, KingSound offers a relaxed atmosphere, classic project recording
at its best-- some of the best recording Joshua Tree to the band
were recorded in residential. This special vibe and affordability
appeals to new artists and out of towners who, had to find the right
house, do modifications and bringing an acoustician to treat the
main tracking room and do it tastefully, then you've got to wire
up everything. You can save time and move right into the New King
Besides producing The Hangmen, Gifthorse, Lift Ticket, and The Carter
Brothers, to name a few, Sloan has engineered for The Blind Boys
of Alabama, The Offspring, Wayne Kramer and Brain James, Busta Rhymes,
Rod Stewart, Fishbone, Kenny Wayne Sheppard, Della Reese, Phranc,
The Warlocks, Greg Dulli, The Watts Prophets, Jennifer Lopez, Weezer,
Scritti Politti, etc.
