Q: How long have you known TRC?
A: How long I have known about the organización? About three plus years.
Q: How’s it been going in the new TRC studios?
A: My experience at the new facility of The Record Co. Well, this experience really started back in my first session at TRC in 2018. The discipline of every member of the organization is something that I relate to. During the pandemic even before the new facility reopened it was very helpful staying connected by social media, just because every piece of information that they provide has been very useful for my project and personal life. That’s why when they were back open I schedule a session to mix and develop a new record called “Asi (Remix)” and it has really help reach a broader audience. Thank you TRC.
