Soundproof Studios the proof is in the sound!
I have owned and operated Soundproof Studios since 2012. I have had the pleasure to record with some people I have considered legends like WC, Mobb Deep, Kurupt & Daz, ASAP Ferg. I record, mix and master rnb, rap, reggae, reggaeton and punjabi/Hindi out of my location in downtown Edmonton.
