• The Engineers

    Sam Jones (b. 1989, Bath, ENG) was first thrown behind a recording console in 2010, at the Kytopia studios. It was a fully analogue studio at the time and the first production Sam did was a full on 24-channel, live-recorded and partly improvised album. This meant riding faders, swapping mics on the fly, running around and basically being part of the performance. Sam hasn’t stopped running since and is now a proud co-owner of Studio Joneski, for which he has bought a chair. Additionally he also works as a live sound engineer and plays guitar and bass guitar for a number of bands.

    Matthijs Kievit (b. 1986, Rotterdam, NED) learned the tricks of the trade by spending time at numerous studios in Utrecht and Berlin (Mailmen, Kytopia and andereBaustelle), in addition to attaining a Studio Technology bachelor's degree at the Utrecht School of the Arts. Since 2008, Matthijs has been developing his skills and style, always looking for evocative sounds. Matthijs also works as a live sound engineer and plays the drums in Woods on Fire.

    Nacho (b. 2010), the studio dog and head of security. Fierce and loyal. He likes prancing around. He doesn't seem to realise he is actually very small. A valuable asset indeed.
