In this video we get to tour Wisseloord Studios in Holland. This is some of the footage James collected on his recent trip to meet with the guys from DWB Music and we get to look in the live rooms, the control rooms and some of the spaces we don’t normally get to see in a professional studio like the machine rooms and storage spaces. Did James raid the drum room for classic snare drums? You will have to watch to find out.
The ECHO 2015 in the category “Best Newcomer International” goes to The Common Linnets!

The Common Linnets (Ilse DeLange and Waylon) will be representing the Netherlands at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen with their hit single “The Calm After The Storm.” This gorgeous, moody track was written by the Dutch/American songwriting team of Ilse DeLange, JB Meijers, Rob Crosby, Matthew Crosby, and Jake Etheridge, and was recorded in part here at Wisseloord. It was mixed here on the API by Ronald and mastered by Darcy. Ronald will be heading to Denmark with the “Linnets” for set-up and sound check. Good luck, Ilse and Waylon!

Unveiling “The Vintage Room”
Congratulations to Peter Maffay & his team !!!
The new album, “Wenn Das So Ist”, shot directly to ‘Number One’ on the German charts this week!
This is his 16th ‘Number One’ album – setting a World Record. With more than 40 million records and 10 million concert tickets sold over his 44-year musical career, Peter Maffay is now the most successful German chart artist of all times.
The album, recorded and mixed by Ronald and mastered by Darcy, is gathering much praise for it’s sound quality and is accompanied with a live DVD in the Deluxe Edition.
While Darcy’s last Grammy hasn’t even gotten the time to settle down here at the Wisseloord studios, a new nomination for “Best Surround Sound Album”has come in for the 2014 Grammy’s. Once again it is Darcy who has taken care of the mastering for Jane Ira Bloom’s Sixteen Sunset album alongside Jim Anderson. Winners will be announced Sunday, January 26th.
Wisseloord’s Darcy Proper, Jim Anderson (engineer), and Mike Friedman (Premonition Records) were delighted to receive their actual Grammy Awards this week. These were awarded back in February for their work on Patricia Barber’s stunning “Modern Cool” PureAudio BluRay release but, because none of the actual trophies are made until the winners are announced, it takes several weeks for them to be sent to the lucky recipients. Here’s a the official photo of these happy folks taken backstage in Los Angeles just moments after their names were announced as winners in the Best Surround Sound Album category.
