Esko Mastering is a custom-made studio housed within a converted barn in the woods of Janakkala, southern Finland. Mastering Engineer Robin Sutherland built and operates the studio, which features stunning acoustics designed  by Finnish acoustician Janne Riionheimo.

The favorable location and dimensions allowed for a room to be built without sacrificing acoustics for the sake of extreme isolation or limited space. This results in an exceptional sounding and comfortable environment, perfect for both in-person and remote mastering sessions.

Services available for Vinyl, Streaming , CD and iTunes.
