On the Desk: Behind the Glass specializes in Brazilian popular music, rock and folk. In the last few months, some of the highlighted artists they have worked with include newer bands Serapicos and Monoclub, and local favorites Rubel and Pagan John. Two major sessions were with Rappin Hood and the Brazilian mainstay Fabio Jr., who is returning to the studio after a 10 year hiatus. Rappin Hood, as many in Brazil know, is a rapper, songwriter, producer, presenter and activist in his home country.

On API: "My projects are always based around the 1608. I have always liked how API preamps deal with fast transients and knew that API sound would be a key factor to delivering the quality that I expect in all my work."
