Shane the Cutter

Shane’s immersion in the urban beats of his youth led him to door of Konk Studios at the age of 16. Observing time honoured tradition, life began as a runner gaining valuable experience working with a selection of the greatest bands at the time.

Transferring to Livingston Studios, Shane became more hands on, working with acts like Soup Dragons, Coldcut and Yazz. His ability helped by experience he gained led to a job at Tape 1 Mastering Studios. Although his official duties were as a copy engineer, he found his way into the vinyl mastering studios and quickly became hooked.

In the UK, dance music was enjoying a momentous uplift in popularity and splintering into many sub genres. Shane became involved with them all and was gaining a burgeoning reputation for being the man who can. When Shane joined Heathmans in 1991, he had two successful record labels in tow and his reputation continued to grow. Eighteen years later, he became a founding member of Finyl Tweek and has sealed his reputation as one of the finest Vinyl Cutters in Dance music.

So much Dance music has passed through Shane’s lathe that not many vinyl DJs could get away without playing a record with Shane the Cutter’s tag on the runout.
