After a decade on stage and in the studio playing a beautiful pile of 70’s keyboards as a band member of The Sheer, a new life in music took off on ‘the other side’ of the mixing console. Small beginnings led to international tours with Benny Sings, Jacco Gardner, White Denim, Allah-Las, Altın Gün, Jungle By Night; growing from pop-up stage tech to arena production FOH mixing engineer with Chef’Special.
With a big soft spot for the organic feel and sound of traditional performance and recording and the urge to capture something lasting longer than a live show, the former vintage keyboard sanctuary turned into a recording studio over time. A small but powerful setup, perfected for analog 8 track tape recording (with the computer as an infrequent but welcome guest), focussing on the heart of the song amidst colourful tools from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and some modern-day classics.
First studio endeavors got international releases by The Mauskovic Dance Band, Altın Gün, Jungle By Night, L’Eclair, Maston, Eerie Wanda, Cyril Cyril, Bifannah, Paint, Tim Hill – on beautiful labels like Bongo Joe Records, ATO, Glitterbeat, Beyond Beyond is Beyond, Joyfull Noise Recordings, Phonoscope, John Colby Sect, Rush Hour, Mexican Summer. Altın Gün’s ‘Gece’ album is Grammy Award nominated for the 2020’s ‘Best World Music Album’ award.
