Testimonials

  • Daniel Lauer, Blindflug

    Geschmackvolles Ambiente, tolles und gut gewartetes Equipment, dazu ein “Hausherr”, der es vermag, sich in seine musikalischen Gäste hinein zu versetzen… Eine Produktion fühlt sich hier nie nach “Arbeit” an, man hat immer das Gefühl, wirklich etwas gemeinsam zu “erschaffen”! Das “Hot Milk Studio” ist dementsprechend nicht nur wegen des Kaffees mein zweites Wohnzimmer…!

    - Daniel Lauer, Blindflug
