About Us

How it began

To escape the rush of Northern European everyday life, the idea of a ‘music composing and producing spot’ in an inspiring and exotic environment arose.

Being a musician, songwriter and producer, Roel got inspired by the relaxed, outdoor way of life in his favorite South-European holiday region: the Algarve. Consequently, he decided to develop that ‘music composing and producing spot’ in Portugal himself.

Simon, as a local audio technician, joined in with his enthusiasm for technics and recording.

Over the years songwriters, bands, artists and producers came and went and our team developed the place into the unique writing and recording place it is today:

  • an inspiring hideaway where you can create and record professional and in a relaxed way – staying in that ‘holiday state of mind’.

‘The art of tracking down that special feeling that belongs to the music and it’s musician. That’s how Roel and Simon describe their work.
