Producer Profile : Anthony J. Resta

Transcript of Interview for ""

Welcome to our new blog category: “Producer Profiles.” Here we’ll feature interesting producers from all over the world, delving into their production techniques, studio equipment and the business of being a producer.

First in line is producer Anthony J. Resta (a.k.a. Aja Ray-O-Vaque). He’s the owner of “Studio Bopnique” (, a newly expanded 3700 square foot large rustic loft, tucked away beneath an old mill complex north of Boston. The studio is Anthony’s “secret lair” where he and his long time engineer Karyadi Sutedja hide like “musical comic-book hero’s in a Beat Cave.”

Classic Tracks Revisited "Crown"

Classic Tracks Revisited "Crown"  by Collective Soul

"Crown" was the last track I worked on for the Collective Soul album "Dosage". (it is also the last track on the album.) The record eventually went platinum. It was my first time working with the band and we had a great time in Miami and Atlanta doing overdubs. I drove a ton of gear from Boston in a rental van. I never trusted airlines with racks of gear. I made the trip at warp speed....about 21 hours stopping only once to sleep for a couple of hours. (pit stops for mountain dew and gas)
Driving eventually all the way to the legendary Criteria studios in Miami.

Duran Duran / Bopnique Classic Tracks Revisited

"Who Do You Think You Are" from the album "Meddazzaland" 

Anthony performed this drum track at Studio Bopnique Musique back in 1997.The kit was a Noble and Cooley  "Maple Classic"  with a solid maple SS classic snare.  (Thanks to JJ and Carol Jones at Noble and Cooley.) It was recorded with a pair of earthworks mics. (A matched pair of the early original OM1's ). Bob St. John  and AJR ended up  keeping the drums pretty much mono during the mix at Metropolis in Chiswick London. This was before the days of pro-tools so it has  a very live loose feel that anthony played live against some programmed tracks and little vinyl kit programmed on my old not so trusty anymore AKAI KBS1000. You can hear the unmistakeable Bopnique room sound with it's warm brick and beam ambience. Here is what had to say about the album:

World Premier Video "King of the Ladies" by ExTrEmE

Extreme's Nuno Bettencourt is a renaissance man. He's a mega-shredder, is currently touring with pop star Rihanna and even writes, produces and directs music videos.

Today, Noisecreep premieres the video for 'King of the Ladies,' a fun, classic anthem perfect for summer. While Gary Cherone is known as Extreme's frontman, Bettencourt takes most of the lead on this one, telling a story of going back in time, trying to impress girls in his neighborhood. As you would expect, there's a big party, a barbecue -- and the cops arrive.

Anthony J. Resta wrote the foundation for the song (beats and basslines) then sent it to Nuno,
the results are a very fun Pop Rock track with Nuno's signature Guitar Virtuosity throughout.
