Avatar of Gareth James

Hey!

My name is Gareth James, and I’m a sound engineer/music producer, web designer/front-end web developer, and digital content strategist from Hitchin, Hertfordshire. I offer an array of technical and creative services, all executed to a very high standard, and with a personal and friendly touch to boot.

I’m always excited to work with new people and businesses, so if you’ve got a project that you’d like some help with, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

What’s New At Freakyleaf HQ?

  • The Ben Drake Collective's 'Still Alive' EP Cover

    I’m thrilled to announce that The Ben Drake Collective’s ‘Still Alive’ EP is now available for general consumption. This recording is the culmination of many hours of work between the band and myself at SoundARC Recording Studios, and features (in my opinion) some of Ben’s strongest material to date. It can be purchased and streamed through all the usual channels (including iTunes and Spotify). Below is a preview of the title track.

  • A Whole Lotta Hard Rock – November 2015

    Well that was loud! My ‘working week’ at SoundARC kicked of Friday afternoon with the return of the ever-lovely Harry Wade and Kayleigh Moss, to finish off their latest EP. A few mix tweaks here and there and then a mastering session brought many hours of work nicely to a close. Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday saw the return of hard-rock four-piece Rough Justice. Adding two tracks (‘Dirt’ and ‘Where We Began’) to their as-yet-untitled album, the boys were sounding as heavy as ever. All that remains now is for me to master. Roy Lendor popped in Monday to continue ...

  • A Busy Mid-November In The Studio

    Well they say no news is good news, and that certainly is true here at Freakyleaf HQ. Work has come thick and fast these past few months, so much so that I’ve just not had chance to sit and write an update. The last five days have seen all manner of sessions on at SoundARC, kicking off with Roy Lendor on Thursday. Roy has now completed his first album (which is currently waiting to be mastered), so we’re now diving head-first into a new track set for release on album number two. Friday was a real mixed bag, with some ...

CSS Tags With Outlined Borders

I’ve just updated my online web development CV and made use of a tag-based system to display the various roles I took on for each of the projects. I was after a very specific look, whereby tags are both shaded (filled) and outlined. Screenshot of my online web development CV, demonstrating the use of CSS tags. A quick scan online didn’t produce any immediate solutions, so I decided to roll my own. The usual method of drawing complex shapes using CSS relies on pseudo elements. There’s a great post on CSS Tricks that details the many shapes that can be ...
