Chasing the Dragon, the specialist UK recording label known for producing audiophile recordings is run by Mike and Françoise Valentine.

Mike Valentine is an ex-BBC sound engineer and is passionate about high-quality audio recording. If his name sounds familiar, he is also an internationally-renowned underwater cameraman. He has filmed underwater sequences for over 90 films, including 5 James Bond movies (check out the credits at the end of Skyfall where he is listed as the Director of Photography of the Underwater Unit). His record label is one of very few that make direct-cut vinyl recordings of classical, jazz and big band music.
