I've been recording with Ramzi at RDS Studios since 2016 and I have had such a great experience there every single time. The facilities are top notch and Ramzi is such a fantastic producer; as a successful recording artist and musician himself, he knows exactly what a musician/vocalist needs and he really knows his stuff! I always come out with material I'm so proud of. I'm so grateful and I wouldn't go anywhere else... he is an absolute pleasure to work with.
Genius comes to mind when I think of Ramzi. The BEST producer, artist & songwriter and just on another level. Not only will Ramzi take the time to get to know you, your style of music but will come up with current melodies and hooks that will blow you away. He's professional, a perfectionist with an excellent ear and a really lovely, down to earth person with a personality to match. I always leave the sessions with the biggest smile on my face and my expectations surpassed. If you want your music to be up there and on a world class level - he's your man.
Amazing studio with high quality equipment, since using RDS i've stopped booking sessions at the previous studios i've worked at.
Very professional and able to understand the client’s requests for the best possible outcome. Good quality and service, definitely recommended :)
