Early life

Dave Aron Interview with musicproducer Dave Aron at SAE Institute

Aron was born in Asbury Park, New Jersey, the son of 1950s be-bop trumpet player Al Aron and twenty-year band director Dorothy Marshall. He played the clarinet in his high school's marching and jazz bands. In 1982, after attending Rutgers University for a year, he enrolled in the University of Memphis' recording program, where he split his time between the recording studios and the football field as a walk-on tight end.

Aron took an internship at WHBQ radio and Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee. In 1987, he landed his first professional job at Sun Studios, where he worked as studio manager and chief engineer, eventually working with U2 when the band recorded some songs for their Rattle and Hum album. In 1990, Aron moved to Los Angeles and began working at Music Grinder Recording. He later landed a staff engineer position at Larrabee Sound Studios.

After working with multiple artists at Larrabee, he worked with Prince on "My Name is Prince", "Sexy MF", and an acoustic version of "7", which Aron mixed and which was released as a single. In 1993, Aron began a long affiliation with Death Row Records. He served as engineer and mixer for Tupac Shakur's album All Eyez on Me, as well as Death Row Greatest Hits, and all of Snoop Dogg's albums from Doggystyle to Paid the Cost to be the Boss. To date, he exclusively mixes all of Snoop Dogg's live performances. In 1996, reggae-tinged rock band Sublime hired Aron as the producer for their self-titled debut Sublime. His influence can be heard on their single "What I Got" which reached #1 on Billboard's Modern Rock chart and helped sell over five million copies of their album. He also collaborated on a Snoop Dogg and Sublime remix of "Doin' Time", released in 2005.

Aron owns Hollywood Way Studios in Burbank, located high in the Hollywood Hills. He is working on a series of instructional mixing DVDs entitled Platinum Hip Hop Mixing, and educational seminars to help teach about music, mixing, engineering and the music industry.
