"Working with Niko has been an absolute joy. His kind, patient approach to recording made the experience really relaxed and fun. He is clearly passionate about what he does, treated all my songs with sensitivity, and was easily able to give my music the quality I had hoped for. I will definitely be back! Thanks, Niko :"
"A great little gem of a studio. Niko has everything at his fingertips and is always on top of what is being recorded. A great range of mics and individual headphone monitoring made working at Pughouse a good space to play your best."

"I just wanted to thank you for the recording session the other day. It was such a pleasure to work at this international standard studio. The rooms sound fantastic and are super comfortable. Even better, Niko is a simply superb engineer, with golden ears and a warm yet very professional attitude – I felt cared-for and my music respected. As a world-renowned musician himself, Niko really operates at another level of audio wizardry, which translates in crystal-clear, audiophile-quality recordings. Combined with very reasonable rates, I highly recommend Pughouse and Niko as the best recording studio and engineer."
