10cc – I’m Not In Love

10cc

“ That meant we had a chromatic scale sizzling underneath the track all the time, a hiss just like the hum you sometimes hear at a football match when nobody’s shouting. If you listen to the opening of the song, where the bass drum beats us in, you will hear a sizzling hum there that continues all the way through the track. We actually created ‘hiss’ on the track, when we would normally have been fighting to get rid of hiss!”

If you have some time I highly recommend reading the article in Sound On Sound where that quote may be found. If you have ever heard this song, you have to wonder how they got this sound in 1975. This article was a mind blowing education in the art of the mix.
