Has there ever been a better way to find out what a man is really like, than to go through his records? (We don't think so.) A quick glance at Matthias Rewigs music collection though would take weeks, so we'd better stick with his personal all-time TOP TEN. Eat this:
1. The Jam 'The gift'
2. Ultravox 'Vienna'
3. ABC 'The Lexicon of Love'
4. Massive Attack 'Blue Lines'
5. Westbam 'The roof is on fire'
6. Heaven 17 'Penthouse and Pavement'
7. Goldie 'Timeless'
8. Smashing Pumpkins 'Melon Collie and the infinite Sadness'
9. Arcade Fire 'The suburbs'
10. Morrissey 'You are the quarry'
Coming from a typical New Wave background with a pretty glamorous taste in music, Rewig has been the owner and managing director of nhb studios since 1986. nhb is a full service postproduction house, audio and visuals, but Rewigs first love was music. When he and his partner Michael Vitzthum started out nhb was a small audio studio in Hamburg. Many famous pop bands like Fettes Brot, 5 Sterne deluxe, Sportfreunde Stiller, Sisters of Mercy, Rammstein, die Krupps, Human League and even Yello had their records mastered there.
Today nhb’s audio department consists of ten recording studios and a Dolby licensed mixing studio, where the nhb music composers, sound designers and corporate sound strategysts work hand in hand, all under the direction of Matthias Rewig. And whenever nhb studios throws one of their legendary parties, you bet that Rewig is part of the DJ team...
