This is the nice and really clean studio by Istra Tec (Romania). For us, it looks a bit like a cool hotel room for producers. Istra Tec coaches people at a DJ school and will release his first EP on his own imprint Yashi records soon. Let’s have a further look at some details and a little interview with him, as well.
Hey Cristian, thanks for having you on board.
