When I was fourteen I traded my saxophone for a sampler.
Soon after I entered a proper recording studio and learnt how to record instruments.
I spent the last twenty years making records.
First they were black, then they became golden and platinum.
Grammy Awards and few other prizes also appeared along the route.
During this journey I’ve had the pleasure to work with Muse, Damon Albarn, Franz Ferdinand, Jack Savoretti, Nova Twins, Fatoumata Diawara, Jesus and Mary Chain, Greg Dulli, Mark Lanegan, Mutt Lange, Jim Abbiss, Butch Vig, Rich Costey, Spike Stent, John Parish and Afterhours amongst the others.
Over the years I’ve selected a good amount of tools to help me making records.
My collection includes vintage and modern microphones, eq’s, compressors, instruments and toys.
Toomi Labs are now based at Laboratori testone in Milan
