'LIFE WITH ALCHEMY' is a semi acoustic album of our original tunes, recorded through both an analogue mixing desk and a modern digital workstation.
Analogue mixing gives the recording a warmth and presence that is sometimes lost in digital productions nowadays.
Additionally, it was recorded in one take to capture the groovy feel.
