Elevate Your Sound

Trickey Sound was originally set up in the 1980s - a truly analog studio with a fantastic collection of analog synths and outboard.  While the envious collection of synths remain our new studio is now augmented by a wealth of today's music technology.  Trickey Sound is a Father-Son collaboration, combining Phil's 80's experience with the current and future sounds and inspiration of his son, Elliott. 

 

Trickey Sound provides a range of services from songwriting and production to mixing and mastering.

OUR WORK

"Working on “Turned to Stone” with Phil Trickey has been an incredible experience. He resurrected a song I had written a couple of years ago and gave it a brand new breath of life by adding an exquisite musical platform to the project. In addition, he was a pleasure to work with, always kind, respectful and professional. I have nothing but words of gratitude and I truly recommend his work to all artists looking for a classy producer, who not only respects the artist’s vision but who also takes it to the next level." - Jimena Arroyo

ABOUT US

 

Elliott Trickey

Elliott is a producer who specialises in Urban genres such as Hip-Hop and RnB. His influences come from artists such as Drake, Bryson Tiller, The Weeknd and Majid Jordan.

 

If you need help with the production of one of your own Urban tracks, Elliott is the person to contact. He is also able to provide a bridge between music inspired by older generations with more contemporary and commercial music. 

Phil Trickey

Phil originally set up Trickey Sound in 1984 when it was a 24 track 2" tape studio with a Soundcraft desk and a range of analog outboard.  Sequencing was undertaken by an Atari computer running Steinberg's Pro24!

 

Having developed his skills starting in the 80s, Phil complements his son's modern skill set to create a unique approach, inspiration and sound not often experienced.

 

Phil is currently working on a musical called "The Music Box" as well as collaborating with Elliott on an exciting album of more contemporary music.
