Deku's approach to working with other Artists brings together a set of musical tools and foundations that he has gained through years living as a musician in Cologne, Germany. His creative workflow and his studio space together allow for new opportunities to take place, beginning from the artist’s vision and seeing it through over the process of recording, producing and mixing, which makes each journey a unique one.





STUDIO

The studio-space right next to cologne’s in-quarter Ehrenfeld is like a second Home. It has been set up with professional recording equipment, an upright piano, keyboards, guitars, basses, samplers and percussion instruments, which provides the perfect ambient for a creative journey. For broader and more complex recording projects, the famous Maarwegstudio2 is just one floor above, where an SSL console and high-end vintage equipment makes any kind of recording possible.
