Welcome

Since 2014, a vast array of artists found their way to Studio Porino,  a  beautiful quiet place in Borgerhout, Antwerp.  It was founded by Roel Poriau, who has been working since 1998 as a drummer in various Belgian bands in rock, world and jazz music. (Think Of One, Flowers for Breakfast, Flat Earth Society, Antwerp Gipsy Ska Orkestra, Rumbaristas …)

Studio Porino is designed by musicians to record and mix in comfortable circumstances without technical or practical distractions: wide choice of mics and outboard, 4 different rooms with different acoustics, reliable monitors and comfortable headphone mix, back line instruments, and also room to cook, eat, shower, sleep, relax….
