BiographyEdit

Based in London, Arun's earliest work includes mastering Lou Reed's 1972 Transformer album that features the song "Perfect Day". Whilst Arun worked at The Master Room in London, he mastered recordings by some of the world's most famous acts. This included OMD's Dazzle Ships in 1983, an album featuring artwork co-designed by Malcolm Garrett and Peter Saville.

In 1993, Chakraverty mastered British House music producer Paul Dakeyne's debut international hit "18 Strings" and predicted the track would be a chart success during the mastering production. He also sent an acetate copy to BBC Radio DJ Pete Tong, with a note expressing his prediction.

He later worked on tracks by Sting, Bob Geldof and Roxy Music.
