Future plans/projects

I have a production company named "Dubvibe Productions Inc." and I work with dance music specializing in Reggae and hip-hop. My aim is to bring artists from around the globe to my studio here in Vancouver Canada so that I may be able to produce CD's for them, especially those who are for one reason or another excluded from the mainstream.

For me it's all about the recording chain and with my Neumann's and the focus-rite pre-amps I get a world class sound that people rave about as soon as they here it.
