Zé Luis is an incredible musician and that takes his work as a sound engineer to a whole different level. He mixed and mastered my CD and I couldn’t be happier with the results! Aside from the great job with the tracks, he provided amazing costumer service and did not rest until he was able to deliver the results I was looking for. Very patient, professional and enthusiastic about art. I highly recommend his work!

Ze Luis is a world class composer and thoroughly accomplished performer. The Atelier is a top notch recording studio run by him. The room is acoustically treated to perfection with lofty ceilings and clean lines everywhere, yet it manages to make feel right at home with subtle rug and furniture. Working with Ze is a delight. He is a true gentleman and master musician.

Sit down, play, and just listen to the beautiful sound being played back - that is good to go - coming out of the speakers! Wow! The Atelier Music Studio has a really nice environment, with top of the line instruments, equipments and best of all, Ze behind the wheels! Ze, besides being a high caliber musician, arranger, and composer, is a super human being, with a great sensor of humor who will make you feel at home and very comfortable, ready to play some art at his atelier!
