PanGaia Studios, a new recording facility located in Stockholm, Sweden has held its official launch party.
The studio was designed to introduce an upscale unique environment for top talent and recording professionals worldwide.
In attendance at the party were Canadian record producer, engineer, and mixer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Metallica, Franz Ferdinand); platinum mixer, producer and engineer Eric Racy (Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Nicki Minaj, Drake) and Chris Tsangarides, Grammy-nominated producer best known for his work with metal acts including Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore and Anvil.
The facility’s founder Geo Slam began his career as a professional session guitarist and producer for various studios in Sweden, and is now an accomplished international producer, songwriter, and member of multi-Grammy winning producer RedOne’s team. Geo Slam has written and produced hits for One Direction, Jason Derulo and more.
PanGaia’s staff have written, engineered and produced hits for Lady Gaga, Prince, Jason Derulo, One Direction, Jennifer Lopez, Backstreet Boys, Adrian Lux, Pitbull, Enrique Iglesias and Europe, to name but a few.
It features six "state-of-the-art" recording studios, a private conference room, pressroom and live streaming video system, as well as personal artist lounges, two kitchens and originative modern and parametric décor.
Located inside the Stockholm Hotel, PanGaia Studios is in close proximity to the city centre, airport, public transport, restaurants, shopping, banks and other amenities.
“We recognised a void. It’s not often that the studios we are working at have everything we need. Over the years, I have been in numerous studios all over the world, and I’ve taken notes on how to build the perfect studio," said Geo Slam. "Many of these places were constructed in the seventies, and they can’t necessarily be rebuilt.
"I wanted to do something from scratch that incorporated everything I felt was missing. We’ve got top-notch equipment, but we’ve also got the ultimate accommodations for artists and their respective teams to be comfortable.“
