Western Europe's notorious professional house DJ/producer/remixers DJ Antoine and DJ Mad Mark have picked WSDG-E, the Walters-Storyk Design Group (Europe), to build their new recording studio in Sissach, Switzerland. Currently under construction, the facility is scheduled to be online by the end of June.
"Due to tight timing and move-in restrictions, the full acoustical design, including sound isolation, and heavy construction phases were completed only two weeks after the contract was signed," said WSDG-E general manager Dirk Noy.
"Ergonomic design was our main concern in terms of accessing our gear," commented DJ Mad Mark. "The WSDG-E team has transformed the space into a fully functional mixing room/production suite complemented by an adjoining machine room, storage area and lobby."
Primarily comprised of MIDI-based production gear augmented by modern and vintage synthesizers, the studio houses two paralleled, fully loaded Yamaha 02R consoles, and is outfitted with Genelec and Yamaha NS-10 loudspeakers.
Celebrating its 33rd anniversary, the Walters-Storyk Design Group (www.wsdg.com), headquartered in New York and Europe, has designed over 1,400 media production facilities in the U.S., the Far East, Europe and South America. Recent projects include: Tim Mosley's new Timbaland Studios in Virginia Beach; Brooklyn Recording, a new 4,500-square-foot, two-room recording studio in Brooklyn's elegant Cobble Hill neighborhood; film composer Carter Burwell's Tribeca New York studio; and Thirteen/WNET (New York) new 5.1 audio suite.
Mad Mark and DJ Antoine credits include remixes for such world stars as Mary J. Blige, Spike and Robin S.
