Pogue Sets Sights on Another "Album of the Year" with Help of His State-of-the-Art Tracking Tool
With a Grammy Award for “Album of the Year” under his belt for Outkast’s “SpeakerBoxxx/The Love Below” album, Mixer/Producer Neal H. Pogue of Fulton Yard Unlimited, LLC knows the importance of secured data information. Recently acquiring the S4FR storage array from PROAVIO, Pogue is now unstoppable knowing his music data is safe. Having worked with the some of the music industry’s most influential artists, such as Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind & Fire, Franz Ferdinand, Queen Latifah, TLC, Talib Kweli and the Transplants, he has seen the trials and tribulations of faulty data storage over the years.
No longer is he concerned by these problems thanks to the S4FR and can focus more on the art of recording itself. “Off the bat what sold me was the S4FR’s drive repair feature – knowing that I don’t have to worry about losing files is a beautiful thing,” said Pogue, as well as, “I finally have a unit where I can access my files from one drive and know that it will repair itself if something goes wrong.” To give you an even better idea on the caliber of his current work, last year he mixed N.E.R.D.’s album “Seeing Sounds,” mixed pieces from Busta Rhymes’ upcoming release “Back on My B.S.” as well as Common’s “Universal Mind Control.”
Pogue has also worked with some breakout artists such as Gym Class Heroes and Chester French. Since he received his RAID-5 Storage Array, he has already put it to use on some of Michael Bolton’s recent mixes and has also recommended it to production duo, Cool & Dre. Pogue continues to push the envelope with his recent work for artists Mama’s Moonshine and Cherokee - coming to a pair of speakers near you.
