Bouk2Bouk responded to inquiries within a day and responses were definitive. Service was punctual. It began with our arrival at the appointed time. The studio was equipped to well suit my needs. Bouk2Bouk‘s owner runs the operation professionally and showed a great sense of the music during recording and post-recording production. Bouk2Bouk‘s rates are great value for its offered service.

When it comes to recording a song or an album I want a quality professional producer and engineer to work with, and Nico at Sweet Spot is exactly that. If you're recording any song you've poured your heart into you want someone who who is going to take the time to make that song sound great. Do yourself and/or your band a favor and never go for the "cheapest" option when looking for a studio. Look for something like Sweet Spot, you'll be glad you did!
