All artists will demonstrate their contribution to the project and the artistic choices they made, and of course the bands that are on the mixtape shall perform live.

About The Lullabye Factory

The Lullabye Factory is a Fully Analog Recording Studio, Art Gallery & Booking Agency with a Concert Promotion division located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The Lullabye Factory's philosophy is creating soulful top-notch analog recordings in an atmosphere where artists feel right at home. Our workflow is one that is direct and engaging, our focus being on creating musical revelation. We use Analog Equipment, from the recording console to the classic effects like spring reverb and tape delay. This makes our sound true and revealing. We are located next to the center of Amsterdam and the Westerpark area. We’ve got a bar and chill-area surrounded with different pieces of art, changing every once in a while as to always be inspired by different concepts of creation.

The Epicentre of The Lullabye Factory  is a D&R Orion analog studio console paired with a AMPEX MM1000 16- track tape recorder, the first professional tape recorder introduced in 1967. The 16-track MM-1000 quickly became legendary for its tremendous flexibility, reliability and outstanding sound quality. This brought about the "golden age" of large format analog multitrack recorders which would last into the mid 1990s. The AMPEX MM1000, nicknamed "The Beast", is breathing new life onto Tape and makes for a beautiful Heart in the studio! 

Fun fact: We've got #152, with the black Ferrite Heads. 

Thanks to Melvin Bloemsma & Jan Jacobus Bloemsma The Lullabye Factory is the proud owner of a Beijing 797 The Tube microphone. We are very grateful, the sound is AMAZING!

The Lullabye Sessions of 23rd of July and 13th of August

Since the last newsletter the following bands were put on tape the size of one Reel.

On a warm day in July "The Beast" recorded Creepy Karpis, energetic folk punk, on a 2 inch tape. Next on was DJ Hagy, a band, not as you'd expect a dj, with a mellow groove accompanied by a soothing bariton voice. For the sweet rock duo from Utrecht Sailing to Suez it's also the first time they get the Reel Deal!

In August we had a very special Session. Normally on a session day the Lullabye Factory is filled with the scent of sweat and tears of rock 'n roll artists, but today is different. The smell of incense fills the room. The Live Room is empty, except for One Man with cowboy-boots and a big buckle belt and his guitar. It's Dishking with his bluesy Tom Waits voice to play the first session. While he's in the Live Room Avi Kishna, co-founder of Imperceptible Art, arrives with his Sarod, a classical Indian instrument. Avi's ragas enchanted everybody in the studio. Carly E is next, with her brother Stijn and blew everyone away with her cello and beautiful voice, including herself. I think we can speak for everyone that it was a very special day!

The Lullabye Sessions August 13th - Avi Kishna, Dishking & Carly. E.
