Ukrainian Music Heritage Collection

KeySound Records team just recently finished collaboration work on mixing, stem mastering, marketing, licensing and international publishing deal of the"Homo Sapiens" - Macrosystem band debut album.

The band's founder believes that music is capable of influencing human behavior and assisting people in the formation of their particular view of the world.

The songs we listen to, or, in other words, the information that song creators convey to the world affects us. The main goal of this album is to further the development of mature, rational, and useful thoughts in people's mind.

Talking about the type of music the band plays, this album unites three genres that became immensely popular in the 21st century: Metal, Rap, and Dubstep. The combination of the aforementioned music genres aims to strengthen the effect of the songs' poetry, which the band believes is quite influential itself. Moreover, the "mixed-genres" accompaniment represents an effective vehicle for transporting authors' thoughts to listeners directly.

Some reviews about our service from “Macrosystem” producer and artist:

"I was very pleased to cooperate with the Keysound Records and especially with Edgar R. Keepoff in working on my band's debut album. Edgar and his team took care of all the tasks connected with songs' mixing and mastering, and his work approach showed him to be an effective and punctual person. I would like to stress the fact that there were no cases when Edgar and his team delayed the working process or neglected his duties. The cooperation with Edgar led to a wonderfully-made album, which appeared to be better than I expected. I realized that before meeting Edgar, I didn't know how my songs could sound. I am definitely going to continue the close collaboration with KeySoundRecords and Edgar, and I will recommend him to all my fellows who are interested in making music. I am pretty sure it was a stroke of luck that I found such a conscientious and reliable man as Edgar R. Keepoff is.

While working together,we became friends rather than staying on the positions of the client and the audio engineer , mastering professional. From my perspective, it means a lot... "
