Memorial Day weekend marked the launch of a few new exciting things here at s5studio.  First off, we decided to throw a Listening Party for our very own recording artist Mocha Bands.  The fun-filled event attracted over 100 attendees and her project, that is scheduled to be released later on this year, received tremendous positive feedback.  We also made a few upgrades to our studio by adding more high end pieces of outboard gear, which will allow us to produce a more sophisticated and refined sound.  We are eager for you to take part of all of our new additions and we're confident that you will leave us wanting more!
