"Working with Pond Life Studios has been an incredibly rewarding experience. A superb mobile recording and mixing set-up ensured extremely high standards at every stage of the production process in locations best suited to my aesthetic and logistical demands. From the moment Matt started to mix my collection of self “produced” songs (which I recorded under my stairs, cocooned in charity shop curtains) it was clear that his contribution would go way beyond the technical. His sensitivity and musical intuition really stood out; a relatively routine mixing project became creative and enjoyable. When little bits of recording were required it was a pleasure to do and thankfully didn’t require any second-hand drapery! I’d recommend Pond Life to anyone who wants a pro production job but also cares deeply about the essence or soul of their project." - Snips from Sollunar
"I've recorded in various studios, and recently have been using PondLife. Their attention to detail and fine accoustic tweaking has left me breathless. I have friends with much more expensive gear, but they don't seem to know how to use it. Recomended" - Steve Bryson, The Snake Handlers.
"We recorded my whole album in my boyfriend's attic - I didn't know it was possible to bring so much home warmth to an album. I'd only ever recorded in studios before." - Joan Ypres, Tit for Tat.
"Matt knows his stuff, a perfect fusion of old-time analogue and new digital skills. As a musician too he's a delight to work with." - Pete Avery, Dreadscape
