Business has been good for studios that focus on indie labels. Case point in, producer/engineer Stevo Bruno, owner/operator of the multimedia, 10-room music complex Klown Records (Santa Monica, Calif., his fourth studio), has hosted numerous sessions for local indie bands and labels. “I like to keep an ear to the wall and listen for new talent,” Bruno said. “I actually have labels calling me all the time looking for new bands. [Klown Records] is basically a ‘Disneyland’ for musicians. I wanted to create a really fun, unique and professional place.

Klown Records boasts a fully loaded Pro Tools TDM Mix Plus studio with a Focusrite C/24 console. A Pro Tools-centered room (aka, the “Aquarium,” because of its “underwater” design) has two iso booths and is digitally linked to five other rooms in the Klown complex. The control room was acoustically designed by Vincent Van Haaff, and is equipped with a pair of E-V Sentry 500 mains. Recently taking advantage of what Klown has to offer were Boy Hits Car (Wind-Up Records), Strapt, Mother's Finest and the Union Underground. Check out www.klownrecords.com for more.
