Adrian "Ady" Parzentny - Hit The Road Music Studio
It's a mobile recording studio, most of the time we are in Morocco, Poland and around Europe
• Photos of your Studio
• Your Bio
Since 2019 we live in a Camper and have a full music studio with us incl. cameras to travel the world and record interesting artists in interesting places.
The idea behind is to show the beauty in diversity of cultures and our way to bring this message is through the universal language of music .. and I just love to record & mix music as it combines my passion of electronics, technical knowledge and creativity
That's why we record artists in every kind of genre: From Classic, to Balkan, Arabic, Cumbia, Rock, Punk, Singer/Songwriter, Sahara Blues ... it just have to be honest & full heart music !
So the main focus is World Music for the Project and World Music/Rock/Punk/Metal for commercial records due to my past as musician (20 years now rockin')
Most of the artists do not have the chance to get a good quality audio in their country so their wonderful music get's unheard.
We offer recordings as part of our project against exchange (Food, accommodation etc.)
as well as commercial recordings for a normal payment (Remote mixing jobs, full single or album productions for local Bands that are known)
• DAW of choice:
Reaper, Harrison Mixbus, ProTools

True story that hopefully motivate people to realise their own dreams 🙂
In 2018 I had the idea to combine my passion for travel with my passion for music - the busking times are over and I wanted to learn about new styles.
I found my new passion for recording and mixing + had the idea to live in a camper, travel and record Bands.
So I took one month off from my regular Job in IT Security, packed 8 mic's and my presonus Interface and traveled 12.000 Km's in one month in a small car from Poland to Morocco and back.
The result was fantastic - I basically run with a backpack full of mic's and mix stands through the Moroccan city "Essaouira" and asked people if they want a record - And it worked 😀
We recorded a famous Band from Israel called "Andalucious" - my first real recording Job - the big stars of the Andalusian Festival 2018
I had 45 min. and only one take and 0 experience with this music and Instruments while my girlfriend operated 3 cameras at the same time
Back in Poland I started to mix and listened this track almost 600 times and learned a ton of mixing techniques and approaches.
At the end everything went fine and the video reached out to 180.000 viewers with a peaceful message - I still can't be believe it 😀
The message is: Never limit yourself equipment wise - it will take extra effort, but it's worth it !
And be crazy enough to try everything 🙂

Thanks as always for your kind words 🙂
Currently all ways back to Europe are closed and many musicians here are more than happy about this haha got a lot of requests and will produce now and the past months several singles, videos and even albums with every soulful singer, pretty excited about the current projects and the time that's ahead !
Stay safe and once again, thank you !
Sunny greetings from the beach,
AdyMarch 16, 2020 at 7:19 pm #72394Paul MotionParticipant
That’s amazing Adrian. So glad that someone’s able to make the best of the situation! 🙂
Stay well from sunny, but less beachy, Melbourne. ??
PaulMarch 17, 2020 at 8:35 am #72418Adrian ParzentnyParticipant
🙂 that's the only way for me, positively move on
I think many negative situations have their positive sides and I always make a step back and chill.
Remember the book "Hitchikers Guide through the Galaxy" ?
The first rule is: Don't panic 😀
The second is: Always have a towel with you - did both - works fine at the Ocean haha
greetings to Melbourne my friend, can't wait for your next mixes !
