Fusing vibe and atmosphere alongside top-quality recording gear, Malibu, Calif.'s Document Room (www.documentroom.com) hopes to provide an alternative space for artists wanting to escape a commercial studio environment. Or, as studio owner/producer J.T. Meskiel said, “Where your long days of endless guitar overdubs can easily be combined with swimming, surfing and relaxation.”

The studio boasts a Neve 8068 MK-I board (modified and refurbished by Fred Hill), which offers its own history: The console was originally commissioned at Family Sound Recordings in Paris, where AC/DC recorded “For Those About to Rock”; it was later purchased by Herbie Hancock and shipped to San Francisco. Other gear of note includes Pro Tools|HD, Digi 002, Champagne 4WC mains (supplemented with ADAM, Mackie, KRK and M-Audio models) and a fine selection of outboard gear, plug-ins and mics.

Other recent projects at the studio include an album for Chloe Lattanzis, Olivia Newton John's daughter. Production on that release was handled by Jarred Rogers.
