  1. Review by Maude L.

    Unsatisfied with the overall experience, Hirotoshi was responsive and has a lovely studio but was unable to meet our requirements for the song we produced together which was fairly simple. There is a shocking lack of knowledge in his music production skills and direction which meant that the recording session was extremely difficult and unpleasant for me. Whilst, Hirotoshi submitted 5 mixed, I am having to get it mixed by another producer from lack of professionalism in the sound he provided.
