Tucked away behind the retail shops in Altona lies a gem of the western suburbs, a studio named Coloursound. Built and run by Mat Robins this is a boutique studio featuring some rare and much sought after outboard gear, all hanging off a gorgeous 1980's Neve console. Add to this some iconic microphones for capture and you have yourself a wonderful space to record in. See a page dedicated to this studio here via 'RECORDING.'
Down the road a little closer to town in Newport you'll find ToKweX. A unique hybrid mixing and mastering facility developed over the past 13 years it offers the very best of both analogue and digital. Several local artists have made use of these Gems of the West for their latest releases, including the popular Chinatown Angels from Melbourne (see 'ARTISTS' links). Jack Gramski is an young singer-songwriter honing his skills in the classic styles of Cohen and Dylan; a modern poet of his generation. Keep an ear out for his latest album and an accompanying EP for release very shortly: Recorded and mixed at Coloursound, Mastered here at ToKwerX in DSD high-definition.
