What starts as a concrete room with no windows becomes—with a lot of creativity, cooperation, and good old fashioned elbow grease—a studio in a remote village in Senegal.

Simon & Greg Record The World. In this Puremix video series, watch as they build a home recording studio setup. They use everyday items at hand and very minimal gear. They are using Lauten Audio microphones, Focal headphones, and a UA Twin interface.

This is Greg and his friend Simon. They are record producers from Montreal, Canada (the place with the maple syrup). One day Simon asked Greg if he wanted to go to Africa to help some friends build a recording studio. Little did They know what They were getting into... Since then, they've decided that once a year, they would pick a country, board a plane, pack suitcases full of gear, and record as many talented artists as they could find. Follow their musical (and whacky) journey around the world in this first season in Senegal. “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Help him build a studio and he’ll record forever...”.
