The centrepiece of Joakim's studio is the beautiful Wunder Audio console, proudly seated upright in the centre of the room. It's a very serious investment.
“Yeah, buying that desk was a very serious decision," explains Joakim. "I had the Trident Fleximix before but it wasn’t very easy to maintain, although it was much, much cheaper and even though the guy I bought it from in the US said it used to belong to one of the Jackson brothers. The Wunder Audio console is a big investment but it’s a kid’s dream to have it.
“I was moving studios and I thought I either had to stick with what I had or go for the absolute dream console and really go for it. So, I sold my apartment and here I am! [laughs]. Because I am working with bands as a producer a lot, I thought it was worthwhile to go completely independent and have this console.
"With this space I can record a full band live, which is fantastic. I don’t think I can really justify it, it’s quite irrational. I just wanted the best thing you could get these days to achieve the mixing of my dreams."
