Neumentroll "Trolltanz" Mix and Mastering

The medieval music band NEUMENTROLL recently spent some time at the BACKYARD STUDIOS in order to have their "Trolltanz" titled debut album mixed and mastered by Sebastian "Basi" Roeder.

Pecco Billo in the BACKYARD STUDIOS

10 years ago they´ve been here for the first time. At least most of them.
Back then they were a local band called "Five Funny Seven" producing their very first album in the BACKYARD STUDIOS.
In the meantime they moved their base to Hamburg, most of them finished degrees in music and are now able to make a living out of what used to be a hobby back then.
The band´s called PECCO BILLO now and they call their music "urban grooves" - a sound that can be described as sophisticated yet very danceable.
They recently returned to the BACKYARD STUDIOS in order to record the basic tracks for some new songs together with engineer Sebastian "Basi" Roeder.
In only 2 days drums, percussion, bass, guitars and 3 saxophones for 4 songs were recorded all together, so it had to be tight and well played. And it was.
All the best for the guys !
