Producer Jon Kong has become the first person in the UK to install a pair of PMC 8-2 monitors.
The monitors are part of the new range of compact, near and midfield professional loudspeakers launched by PMC earlier this year.
As an artist and songwriter, Kong is one half of the House music duo Leftwing: Kody, but he is also an accomplished mixing and mastering engineer who currently works from his own studio in Maidstone, Kent.
The need for clarity across his mixing and mastering projects was the key reason why Kong decided to upgrade his monitoring with a new PMC 8-2 system.
Designed to take studio monitoring to the next level, PMC’s new range delivers a level of detail that allows users to work faster, without fatigue and with the knowledge that their mixes will translate technically and emotionally anywhere.
The range incorporates all the advancements for which PMC is renowned, including all-new drivers, sophisticated DSP and Class-D amps and ATL™ bass-loading and Laminair™ air flow technologies.
“I first heard PMC monitors at a friend’s mastering facility,” Kong explains.
“I loved them because the low end extension and the clarity in the mid range was so impressive. When the time came to upgrade my studio monitors, I demo-ed various brands but kept coming back to the new PMCs because they sounded so good.”
Kong was introduced to the new range by Dale Chapman at SX Pro, who recommended the three-way active 8-2 system because it is designed for critical reference monitoring applications.
Since installing his new PMC monitors, Jon Kong has completed projects for RCA, Sony & Positiva.
He is also working on his own material and collaborating with other artists as a songwriter, with a new release with Brazillian man of the moment Vintage Culture on Musical Freedom/Spinnin.
He has also completed Camden Cox’s debut single Over on RCA and is currently mastering work for Yousef’s Circus Recordings, Nic Fanciulli’s Saved Records, Hot Since 82’s Knee Deep In Sound and Pattrick Toppings Trick.
