Hi there ! My name is Mobo. I’m a metal producer in my CONKRETE STUDIO, located in France. Bass player and co-founder of prog metal band PLUG-IN, I toured as a BUMBLEFOOT band member (with Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal of Guns N’ Roses fame) for a couple of years, and then I started CONKRETE STUDIO, a recording, mixing and mastering facility dedicated to metal bands, in 2004. Conkrete Studio is now one of the top metal studios in France.

I actually began my carrier as a composer and sound designer for video games 25 years ago. I made music for games like Nightmare Creatures 1 & 2 (with ROB ZOMBIE on the second one). I’m still scoring games today.

Look no further if you’re looking for powerful, yet crystal clear mixes or masters. A metalhead for more than 30 years, and bass player for more than 20 years, I’m not only a producer and an engineer. I’m also a musician who often understands your music even better than you guys do.

You recorded your band but can’t get that pro sound out of your recordings ?
You’ve done a nice mix, but when you try to master it, you just end up destroying your work ?

Gimme a shout and we'll sort it out !


Now at Conkrete Studio : Fleshdoll (mixing)

Name’s Déhà, huge fan of Mobo’s works since Amiga games. Years later I gave Mobo my album with Arno Strobl, We All Die (Laughing), mix & master. He worked quickly, badassly and understood the whole concept. He gave THE sound to our album with THE production we were looking for. Gorod, Eryn Non Dae, … Need I say more? Mobo’s the man. Or a Legend?
Mobo turns standard metal straight into Metal on Steroids ! We had the chance both with Gnô and Mörglbl to have our albums mastered by the über master from Conkrete Studio, and we were blown away !!! Jabs in the face !
The guy not only rocks but he is a gem to work with. Thumbs up… Huh… Fists up !!!
Christophe Godin, MORGLBL, GNO
Mobo mastered the two albums of our band NAÏVE (“The End” and “Illuminatis”). With him on board, you fucking get what you fucking need. He gets everything clearer, louder, and more powerful than ever. Plus the man is an absolutely fantastic human being. Don’t hesitate if you want your record to sound like it deserves to. Fire at will!!
1 EP and 2 albums of our band LOKURAH have been mixed and mastered by CONKRETE STUDIO with some recording too (almost all the 1st album, drums and bass reamping for the second one. Everything sounds powerful and fat for us since 2005 and this sound has made a big difference for us to emerge among tons of bands !
