It’s been a good couple of weeks! A bunch of Sonic Union work was shortlisted by AICE and AMP, and we shared the AMP Award for Outstanding Mix with our friends at Sound Lounge. It means a lot coming from AMP. And while it’s great to be recognized for work you submit to awards committees, it’s somehow more a point of pride for me how much of the work nominated in other non-sound-specific categories had Sonic Union’s imprint. In a prior AICE awards show, every Sonic Union mixer was represented in different categories. That felt good.

We can all maybe agree that shiny things are nice, but knowing that we’ve built a company and a culture to be proud of on every level is what’s made this journey matter for me. Here’s some of the award winning work we were a part of this season;
