Dan Parry is a British audio engineer. His career began back in the summer of 2001, when shortly after college he landed a job working at Soul II Soul Studios in Camden Town, before joining Metropolis Group in 2004.[1]

After two years in a training position, Parry became an assistant engineer working mainly with double Grammy award winning mix engineer, Tom Elmhirst. Parry spent the next four years learning under Elmhirst and working with artists such as Amy Winehouse, Adele, and Mark Ronson.

In 2009, Parry co-created the i-Mixing service. An online service offered by Metropolis Studios, providing low cost mixing usually to unsigned artists. The service utilises dead time in the studios coupled with the mixing skills of the facility's in-house and assistant engineers. The service brings affordable mixing services carried out in a leading studio to people who might not normally have the budget to mix in such a facility. In 2010, he was nominated for his first ever Grammy Award for his involvement on Lady Gaga's The Fame Monster album. From the start of 2011, Parry became the first engineer to join the newly created Metropolis Management roster.

Recently, Parry has been involved with mixes on Miles Kane's debut solo album Colour Of The Trap, recording on Cee Lo Green's The Lady Killer as well as recording on Adele's second album, 21.
