Career[edit]

He learnt the craft of sound engineering at The Dairy Studios in Brixton, where he first came to prominence with Florence + the Machine's song "You've Got the Love".[1] It spawned a second single featuring Dizzee Rascal "You Got the Dirtee Love".

Charlie also worked with Florence Welch to produce "My Boy Builds Coffins" from her debut album Lungs and to mix and produce the bonus disc on the second album, Ceremonials.
