Producer Will Yip releasing special comp featuring Title Fight, Circa Survive, more

Off the Board: A Studio 4 Family Compilation will be released next month on October 4th and feature new and unreleased songs recorded and mixed at the famous Studio 4 recording studio.

Conshohocken, PA’s Will Yip is a name that might not be familiar to many listeners. Yet over the years he has worked on a number of great records from the best up-and-coming names in punk, along with some seasoned vets from rock, hip-hop, and more. If you were to go through his discography you would come across names like Title Fight and The Startling Line as well as others like Lauryn Hill, the Disco Biscuits, and The Fray.

Yip began his career at the ripe, young age of 14 working as an apprentice under Chris Grillo and Ground Control Recording. He later landed a job working at Studio 4. Run by Phil Nicolo, Studio 4 has produced numerous gold and platinum selling and Grammy Award winning records over the past 30 years.

Up next for Yip is a full participating partnership in the legendary Studio 4, and to help raise money to put towards the down payment, it was decided to put together a compilation featuring songs that were produced, recorded, mixed and mastered all by himself. “I want to give the punk, hardcore, and alternative community of awesome bands a home.”

Bands on the record will reveal a glimpse into Yip’s history thus far. “This comp represents everything that I’ve done in the past ten years of my life,” Yip explains. Title Fight, Circa Survive, Balance and Composure, Man Overboard, Tigers Jaw, Polar Bear Club, and Anthony Green all have contributed songs.

The Off the Board compilation will be out October 8th and is available now in a Kickstarter-esque fashion. There are a number of different options available in the online store. The album itself will be available digitally, physically on CD, and vinyl. There will only be a single pressing for the record, 500 copies in both red and green, and 2,000 in black. A limited number of test presses are available as well.

Other items include specially printed t-shirts from a few of the bands featured on the compilation, tickets to a special concert, and Q&A session featuring Anthony Green, signed memorabilia, and more. On top of that, Yip has also has special offers such as studio tours, a production and recording clinic, as well as the opportunity to be an assistant for a day.

Everything can be found here at the web-store.
