I support Non Violence. Violence does not work, at all. There are no exceptions, none. Therefore, if your text contains the promotion of violence, hate, bigotry or racism, please find another studio that wants to work with you. I will not.
This is a No Booze, No Dope Studio (no weapons either)
Meaning, it is more efficient to be focused on your recording than anything else. So, in my experience, leaving your worries and substances at your home, just makes sense.
