“Luciano is one of these amazing cats who plays blues, R&B
and New Orleans-style keyboards so well and with so much
soul that after you hear him, you’ll want to do one of two things:
(1) quit, or (2) go practice and try like hell to catch up. One of the
baddest cats out there on the scene, end of story...”
- BOB LOHR, Chuck Berry piano player
With a unique collection of old keys and equipments - and a partnership with other studios and musicians that also seek original timbres and vintage sounds - the house offers the main instruments that made history in classic blues, jazz, R&B, rock and contemporary music records.
We've been recording, mixing and producing people for the last 10 years, and our main goal is to make the musician / songwriter happy and satisfied with his art. We are artists, so we completely know what it means!

Fantastic work! Luciano is a brilliant musician. The recordings were excellent, super easy to use and exactly what I had asked for. Highly recommended!
My experience working with him has been great.
He always performs to the best of his ability and works with my intentions in mind.
Great suggestions, solid skills, and trust. In this respect, this job was the best I have ever had in my career. I can't wait to work with him again.
Luciano did another great job with Hammond and Wurlitzer on a track of mine. Highly recommended to all!
Luciano gets another 5 stars This time he reworked the mix to enhance elements.
5 stars all the way
