UK – Swedish rapper Yung Lean, has recently completed his biggest UK headline show to date – titled “Wings of Desire” – at London’s 5,000 capacity O2 Academy in Brixton, while accompanied by an Allen & Heath dLive Wings set-up.

The full audio set-up – owned by FOH engineer Gustav Brunn – is used for both FOH and monitor duties and features a dLive C1500 surface fitted with a Waves 3 card at FOH position in conjunction with a CDM32 MixRack, fitted with a Dante card, and an IP6 controller at stage position.

Brunn comments: “I was looking for a fly-in rig that we can take anywhere in the world when A&H released the new dLive series. It’s such a competent rig and really suits my needs, I can bring it with me anywhere on the planet!”

On stage, a DJ performs alongside the artists using Ableton Live with the outputs sent to the CDM32 via Dante. The IP6 is used to allow the production / stage manager to make quick adjustments to the monitor mix, DJ mix and musicians IEMs.

Brunn adds: “This summer I went back and forth between several tours with Dante and MADI card and I love the flexibility of I/O with all the option cards. Real estate-wise it’s tiny, but inside it’s a total chateau!”

Brunn also makes full use of dLive’s built-in EQ, FX, and DEEP preamps and compressors, commenting “Everything from patching to changing the order of EQ and compression is easily accessible and easy to understand – there’s really nothing that I can’t do with this mixer!”

Yung Lean became widely known when the music video for his track "Ginseng Strip 2002" went viral, exceeding two million views on YouTube. The recent event follows his new single ‘Poison Ivy’ and featured a night of music, art and various other Swedish artists such as Bladee, ECCO2K and Thaiboy digital.
