Edwin McLachlan is a professional music producer, mixer and drummer based in Edinburgh, Scotland. He is currently touring and recording with artists such as Young Fathers, Kapil Seshasayee, and Day Sleeper.
A couple of videos from this summer's festival performances with Young Fathers, including Glastonbury 2023.
I'm honoured to be behind the kit for Young Fathers for their EU tour dates with Depeche Mode, as well as some of their summer festival itinerary.

Kapil Seshasayee's new studio album Laal is out now. I produced, engineered and mixed the record, with mastering handled by Sam John at Precise Mastering.

I had the distinct privilege of working with one of my favourite local bands last year, and the resulting single is now available everywhere. Featuring production, engineering, mixing, programming and additional drums from me, and a music video by Lucinda Lewis.
Kapil's latest single is out now, with guest vocals from Polymath of Pakistani hop hop collective Daranti Group and production, engineering, mixing and programming from myself. The song also comes with a stunning animated music video that you can see below. We're currently in Brighton attending and performing at The Great Escape Festival to promote it.
Ancestors, the debut single from The Dalmar Chorus is out now. I wrote, performed and engineered the drums, as well as mixing and mastering the song itself. A very fun song to play and a colourful arrangement to mix. I'll be playing with the band at their live debut at Common Ground Festival 2021 on September 12th.
Kapil's collaboration with rap legend Lil B is out now, to which I contributed production, drums and mixing. Getting to work with one of my all-time hip hop icons was a wild ride, and B brought so much energy and enthusiasm to the project, which I appreciated immensely. Definitely one of the most fun and surprising projects I've been involved with for a long time. I also designed and created the mograph for the single's YouTube visualizer.
I had the privilege of mixing and editing the audio for "Everyone Everyone", a short animated film and audio collage exploring how musical facilitators have adapted their forms of engagement to online platforms during pandemic times , with a specific focus on facilitators who work with differently abled participants with complex needs, with a focus on Glasgow-based initiative Hear My Music.
Heart of Gold has dropped a music video for their new song "Just, Everything", which I had the pleasure of mixing- a well constructed, performed and recorded song, with the freedom to try some pretty adventurous mixing techniques. A dream job, basically.
