Stephen is the man. Period. Droptone itself is a beautiful place and has all of the tools you need and then some, but more important, STEPHEN IS THE MAN. I came from out-of-town not knowing anyone on the music side and had no idea where to record the material I had been sitting on. Because I do rap/hiphop, I would get the suggestions from people who knew a guy with Protools on his laptop in the basement. Luckily for me, through some weird aligning of the stars, I ended up with an email address to Stephen and not only did he email me back promptly, he offered me a chance to visit and check the place out before any talks of payments started. Once I arrived, I knew something special would come from the sessions…I admit I was a little nervous at first because of my style and genre of music but Stephen’s versatility with sound and music wiped out any of the initial worry I had. Long story short, the sessions were always dope, usually starting with some thought provoking convo before the time even started. I like to think that helped my delivery on the mic…getting the best of your “takes” is Stephen’s specialty. “There’s a lot of good stuff in that last one, let’s see how it would sound if we tried it this way too…” I could go on forever but really If you need to record professionally in a good environment with everything you need, go to Droptone. I was linked up with another talented artist to sing on one of my songs and was able to get my track professionally mastered all through Stephen…you won’t regret Droptone!
