Hot Milk Studio is owned and operated by engineer/musician Robert Cummings. Born and bred in the flat praries of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Robert has been active in the music industry since 1989. After starting his career as a drummer in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada, he lived in Paris, France and then ultimately moved to Berlin, Germany in 1992 where he has been active ever since as a drummer and audio engineer.
As an engineer, he takes a musical approach to conducting sessions and running productions. The vibe should be relaxed yet focussed, comfortable yet efficient. Through many years of recording real music performed by real musicians, he is a specialist in producing hand-made rock, jazz, world and pop music.
As a drummer, he has performed with The Doors Of Perception, Europe’s premiere Doors tribute band, since 2003. He currently performs in The Kream, a tribute to the music of Cream. His first studio was founded in Berlin in 1995 and he built his current homebase, Hot Milk Studio in 2009. In 2016, the studio underwent major renovations and, in collaboration with the other members here, Hot Milk Crew was launched as the studio house band.
At Hot Milk Studio, we can record with your own band or musicians but we also offer the opportunity of recording with some of Berlin’s finest session musicians. We work with a host of producers, songwriters, musicians & artists, who offer the gamut from songwriting to preproduction and recording.
