– Rinus Hooning, Artone Recording Engineer


In October 2022, Djabe took part in a special recording session at the ARTONE studio belongs to Record Industry pressing plant in Haarlem, The Netherlands. The band direct-to-disc recorded 4 sides of the double album at 45 RPM. The recording was done on the Direct Metal Mastering cutting machine, using High-End analogue equipments only.

Djabe is known for the excellent sound of its recordings and vinyl records. They recorded several of their albums using analogue technology, and they always cut their records from analogue master tapes, but they have not yet recorded any of their albums directly to record.

The high-quality technique of the ARTONE studio and the professional knowledge of the studio’s staff make the result unique in the band’s history. The discs reproduce analog sound at a level that is also outstanding internationally.

Tamás Barabás, the band’s sound engineer and bassist, worked closely with the studio’s professionals, including engineers Rinus Hooning and Martijn Schouten during the recording.

The big attraction of the 2019 Budapest HiFi show was the joint stand of Audiophyle Szalon and Djabe, where Djabe played live on a system containing high-end McIntosh and Sonus Faber components. The concerts, which were a great success among the audience, were recorded by the band with a 24-track analog tape recorder and made a 34-minute selection of the material, which was also cut to a disc at 45 RPM using DMM lathe.
