UK: The London facility has been acknowledged for its work on Feist's '1234', writes David Davies. A global chart hit in early 2008, '1234' - along with the rest of its parent album, The Reminder - was mastered by Mandy Parnell at Electric Mastering. In the wake of four Grammy nominations earlier this year, the song has now been nominated for a Technical Excellence & Creative Award in the Record Production/Single or Track Category at the TEC Awards.

The TEC Awards will presented in October at a ceremony scheduled to coincide with the 125th AES Convention. The White Stripes, Foo Fighters and Alicia Keys are among the competitors in the aforementioned category.

An acclaimed mastering engineer who joined Electric Mastering in 2007 after 14 years at The Exchange, Parnell had already mastered one album for Leslie Feist, 2004's Let It Die, when she was approached to apply the finishing touches to The Reminder. Work on Feist's latest opus was carried out using the studio's rare 1970s EMI TG12410 transfer desk.

"It was great fun to work with Leslie, both in terms of understanding how she hears her music and helping her to achieve the sound she was looking for during the mastering," said Parnell (pictured), who has also recently mastered tracks for artists as diverse as Vampire Weekend, McFly and Vashti Bunyan.
