Damn! August was rad; Ayad worked with Rebecca Rossi on her great pop project Krystalmath, and he and Joel had a blast working with Philly rock n rollers Cold Fronts. Joel tracked and mixed his own band Surf Rock is Dead as well as assisting Justin Gerrish on Brooklyn garage rock outfit Best Behavior! James Ellis & Chris Black also stopped by a couple of times to record their fun as hell podcast Public Announcement.

Looking for some fresh projects for September - hit us up to have a chat and swing by the studio! Especially looking for some sweet scoring projects now that Synth Land has landed!
