The Windmill

The Windmill

The Windmill is a drum tracking studio in the base of an 18th century windmill, built in response to changes within the music industry here in the UK and elsewhere. Due to budget and time restrictions it’s not always possible to record drums the way you’d like. Here I’m able to offer flexibility to producers/artists and the opportunity to have live drums on tracks which in the past would have been programmed or looped.
