~ DYLAN MAGIEREK ~

While Dylan has a broad background in the music industry – Badman Recording Co. label founder, studio owner, and music biz lecturer – his true love is recording, producing and mixing records. His varied credits include Fleet Foxes, Mark Kozelek (Sun Kil Moon / Red House Painters), Thao Nguyen & Portland Cello Project, The Builders and the Butchers, Lovers, Starfucker and The Mother Hips. He has been a partner at Type Foundry since 2006.

In speaking of producing and the process of recording, Dylan states, “My goal is to have a band or artist leave with an album that is beyond their expectations. Getting energy and the live, original feel of the songs onto tape (or the computer) is essential. I’m a big believer in spending time with the band before they get into the studio (if they are looking for that) and bouncing ideas around that may add a little something stronger to the songs. In the end it’s all about getting remarkable songs down and having the artist be excited about their album.”

“Badman founder Dylan Magierek, who has shown his recording skill by making Mark Kozelek’s solo material ring somehow far fuller than one thought vocals, an acoustic guitar, and some AC/DC covers might possibly sound, can again take a deep bow here. It would be wonderful if everything Badman put out was recorded by Magierek…” – Dusted Magazine

~ JEREMY ROMAGNA ~

Jeremy recorded bands at school, in his basement and later at the Portland Robot Steakhouse before joining Type Foundry in 2002. Drawn to recording through an interest in hi-fi and electronics, Jeremy enjoys the challenge of satisfying the specific vision of the band, if not faithfully re-creating the aural aspect of a live performance. Jeremy left the Type Foundry fold in early 2015, but still does return occasionally to record over here.
