We are beyond happy that we had our album mixed and mastered by Landon. With our band not being from the Madison area, Landon worked with us to make everything as easy as possible for us by communicating through email so we only had to come down to Madison to do our final mix session. Communication was frequent and clear, everything was always on time, and our album ended up sounding better than we could have imagined. We would definitely work with Landon again, and have already recommended him to other bands we know. Overall, it's the best experience I've had in making an album.

We got Landon's name from a friends refernce. He said "Landon's the real deal" and he was right. When we started working with Landon on our album project we quickly realized that we didn't need a producer or music director, Landon is all those things rolled into one. Somehow with his low-key demeanor, he guided us with suggestions, without being over bearing. His knowledge of music & song structure is quite impressive but at the same time he let "us be us". He is very observant and has great ideas but did not get in the way of our creativity. You won't find a better engineer in a better studio anywhere than you will with Landon & Blast House.

I’ve been a full time drumming professional for many years. I’ve recorded in NYC, Boston and Chicago with a multitude of projects. If there’s one thing that rings true regardless of the city, it’s that a studio is only as strong as its engineer. Landon Arkens is a rare breed. Not only an outstanding musician, he possesses a special kind of brilliance between producer and engineer. He has the patience and ears to take your project exactly where you want it to go and will work with your vision. A calm, positive powerhouse behind the board. No need to travel – Madison is lucky to have him. If you’re serious about recording you need to talk to this guy. He’s the real deal. Did I mention Blast House is affordable?

Just finished recording a full ten song album with Landon and it was such an amazing experience. Landon can do it all! Did not know going in how much we would be relying on him. He is not only an engineer, but his producing skills are an added bonus. What stuck out the most for me was his ear. I do believe he said he's a classically trained singer. Another thing I noticed was that he never "phoned it in." Even when were down to 15min. in a session you could tell he was still taking it seriously. He gets how much it means for a band to be in the studio. Landon essentially replaces multiple people and that why it's worth the money to work with him.

My experience recording and working with Landon Arkens at Blast House has been nothing but top notch. Professional, fast, efficient and always delivering great quality recordings, from rough mixes to the final mastering, I've always been completely satisfied! AND as a musician it's always good to know that with their great prices you can still afford your daily amount of Hawaiian Punch and Doritos and not be out on the curb!

Absolutely loved working with Landon. Great engineer + great ears makes for an awesome project every time and Landon is just that. After having done three separate projects with him, we could not be happier with what we have produced. With Landon, it is apparent that when you are in the studio your project is priority #1 - nothing else matters at the time.

Landon is a super chill, super professional dude. Had him mix and master an EP of mine, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome!
