REVIEWS

BRUCE

We recorded our last 2 BRUCE albums ("Captain, we've lost Bruce" + "My Latest Popstar Crush" in Bart's High Lake Hill studio, and are extremely happy with the result. 
We all felt very comfortable during the recording sessions, everything was perfectly organised, and managed to work efficiently without wasting useless time. 
Bart understands like no other how punk rock should sound, he immediately knew which sound fitted best to our music and made lots of suggestions. 
Not only a great guy and great musician, but also the best sound engineer and co-producer for our albums!

FABULAE DRAMATIS

We are very satisfied with Bart van Lier's services. He has a great attention for detail and quality. Van Lier mixed our long play album "Solar Time's Fables" and mixed and mastered our last single "The City (Translucent)". Being a musician himself, he has the musical know-how to understand your music and to record, mix and master it patiently and with the highest quality possible. Bart listens and adapts carefully to the client's feedback. He has a well-trusted responsibility and he keeps a constant and professional communication with the musicians in order to guarantee the best and desired.

THE REAPERS / DAYDRINKER

The first time I heard Bart's work I was impressed right away. His work on the records from Midnight Tattoo and 1984 was something I was looking for for a long time with my own band. The fact that Bart is very familiar with the punk rock genre was a big benefit as well. 
We recorded our second album with The Reapers at Bart's High Lake Hill Studio and the result was amazing. From that day I decided to involve Bart as much as I can with my musical projects. His easy character and amazing skills are the best you can find in a studio. High Lake Hill is THE studio for your punk rock sound!
