    It was such a wonderful experience to work with Joona from start to finish! To begin, he created a stunning musical track from my demo. And from there, he was so attentive to my specific notes, that I ended up with what I consider to be my most perfected track so far in this project. I am thrilled and have several more songs in mind for Joona!

    It was an interesting journey with Joona! I was very strict and severe about the sound I'd like to have and Joona made it the best way. Professionalism, quick turnarounds, explanations and kindness are the top qualities of Joona that will definitely lead to the desired outcome! The EP he helped me with is already scheduled for released and I can't wait to hear my audience reaction cause it sounds amazing.

    Highly recommend! Slava Ukraine!

    Awesome experince.Joona Lukala gets the job done. He listens to instructions and comes up with the best solutions. I understand his services are obviously on demand but half a year went by fast. Good things come to those who wait. If I have projects that are not super urgent, I will definitely come back for more. Highly recommended.

Interview with Joona Lukala

  4. A: Song writing team is doing great work, you should check them up

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: I like both.Depends on the vibe and sound of the production and how artist want to work. Usually digital makes the most sense because tight schedule and total recall ability. Analog tools has different sound compared to digital. You can choose to use analog synths or tape machines for their sound in just some stages of production. I think variety makes music more interesting and thats the reason many are using sampled drums with acoustic drums or digital and analog synths mixed together. Same way you can use digital recording and mixing with for example analog tape mastering. They are just tools. People who use them are more important.
