Eric Valentine, Undertone Audio and the Legacy of a Space
This past summer, after 18 years of building, rebuilding, recording, inventing and producing in his largely private Barefoot Recording, nee the legendary Crystal Industries Recording in Hollywood, producer Eric Valentine is turning over day-to-day operations to a few close friends and opening the rooms and the gear to all who want to record quality music. And he’s on the cover of Mix, for all the right reasons.

Eric Valentine's Longtime Private Studio Was Formerly Crystal Recording
Hollywood's Barefoot Recording has officially opened its doors to outside clients after serving as Eric Valentine's private studio since 2000, where he has produced albums for artists such as Good Charlotte, Taking Back Sunday, Nickel Creek, Queens of the Stone Age, Third Eye Blind, Smash Mouth, The All-American Rejects, and Slash, among many others.
Valentine, who is still active making records, brings the perspective of an end user to the studio design process. Striving to fulfill the needs and solve the problems of today's record makers, he developed Barefoot Recording and the equipment manufacturer UnderToneAudio as outlets for his creative vision, making it available to a wide variety of musicians, engineers, and producers.
