Welcome to the noisiest land of all
The story of Noisyland Recordings begins on February 3, 2012, in the center of Ioannina.
Keeping the aesthetics of traditional architecture but creating a modern studio meeting the needs of modern music production, Noisyland Recordings managed to become an integral part of the city's music community as well as a center point for artists and companies from all over Greece.
Noisyland has offered through the years high services of music and sound production to artists, film, theater, and television companies as well as to organisations from Greece and Abroad.
Also our space hosted from time to time seminars, open days as well as Live Stream events.
Since February 2021, Noisyland Recordings is housed in a newly designed space, offering even more services but always keeping the high standards of aesthetics and quality that we have set from the first day of our operation.
The history of Noisyland Recordings is diametrically parallel to the history of your own songs, performances, and works.

Interview with Noisyland Recordings
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I produce the second album from a folk artist here in Greece and about to finish the mastering for an album that it will be released in Germany
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To make them happy. They will have a song that can feel proud about.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: The main question these days is about the price. My honest answer to that...depends! Projects and songs are different from each other so I try to validate every situation properly.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: 1. Recording Process 2. Deadlines
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: To be honest. That's the best starting point for every relation. if you feel that the song lacks in something tell me. I'm not here to judge you. I here to help you.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Well, I always admire great musicians. Not only the virtuosos but you know... people who give their hearts and souls at it.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I am in the audio industry about 13 years now. I enjoyed all those years because you work with people who share the same passion with you and thats wonderful. It was a bumpy road but in the end of the day you make your living by making music and thats wonderful.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: "Krasomillia" with Dimitris Ifantis is a very special project for me. I just opened my studio (on day 2 we started tracking) and it was my first production for a major artist. Dimitris trusted me from day one and thats special.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I can adapt. I listen to a lot of music and that gives me the flexibility to understand the song. People start moving faders those days because they can. I want to be sure that not just the quality of the song is grade but also I translated the artist vision perfectly.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Noisyland Recordings (my studio) has to 2 rooms for tracking. Both of them with different acoustics. Those rooms are wired to my control room. I use a hybrid setup with an analogue console and much outboard gear along with all those great digitals tools. That gives me the flexibility to go for the vibe and character I want without compromising the sound quality.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: First of all, I'm trying to understand the artist vision. My responsibility is to bring the best out of a song. From producing a song through mixing and mastering I am providing my skills to ensure that the final product is something that the artist feel proud.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style... i will put it this way. i don't like 4:3. IMAX suits me better. I want a song to be open, and wide and powerful . No "loud" powerful. Thats the easy part. I am talking about a song that you want to dance or make your head bang from the moment it hit the speakers.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. The cons from analog are the Pros on digital and vice versa.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Everything. And i am totally honest with that.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That everything can be fixed in the mix. The don't. And if they do song become soulless.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My Ipod (Solar power included ) my Genelecs, a pair of 1176 Rev D compressors and the slate everything bundle plug ins
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I really like the artists with strong personality and also open minded. People with vision and passion about music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Sure! If you record at home Record with a Dynamic rather a cheep Condenser. Can really help you with rooms with poor acoustics, sibilant Singers and noises around the room. Sometimes singers feel more secure when the hold the mic and i performance is everything. You can't fix that.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Most of the time Rock and Pop albums.In the past i have done from movie soundtracks to EDM albums.But most of the time Rock an Pop Songs.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: In one word excitement. Not only as technician but also as a music lover i want to make a song powerful and memorable. I want to make a song special. To have that " Something". And this is the reason that a spent time to be familiar with the song.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First i have to be sure that there is nothing to distract me from the mixing. So i listen carefully all the audio clips i edited them, tuned and tempo fixed them if necessary and only if its something we already talked with the client. Then i listen the track several times to find the key elements that makes the track different and when i feel confident i start mixing. You have to know the route to make it to the final destination....
