The Penthouse is a recording studio located in Heist-op-den-Berg, close to Lier – Aarschot, Belgium. The studio includes some of the finest recording and mixing gear in the world, bringing together a digital workflow and state of the art analog gear. You can also rely on a nice backline of drums, guitar and bass amps.
A creative approach is favored to recording and I strive to make timeless, well crafted albums. A relaxed comfortable environment, an engineer that has creative ideas and that implements your ideas, and of course, great gear all contribute to the process.
The Penthouse is run by Filip De Bot, former student Music Production at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent. After 5 years of education in recording and mixing techniques, songwriting, arranging and more he graduated in 2007 with a degree of “master in music”. – “His musical knowledge in combination with high end gear prove to be an undeniable advantage setting The Penthouse apart from other facilities.”
After my education I stepped out of my comfort zone to be able to work with Alan Douches (Killswitch Engage, Fallout Boy), Jason Livermore (Rise Against, Comeback Kid, NOFX), Fred Kevorkian (The White Stripes, Bad Religion), and most recently I went to Antfarm Studios (Aarhus, Denmark) to mix with Tue Madsen (August Burns Red, Heaven Shall Burn, Sick Of It All, Suicide Silence, … ) Now I bring all of my experiences together in my own place, The Penthouse.
Please take a look at the pictures, have a listen to the songs, and feel free to contact the studio with whatever questions you might have.
