Ricky Ojijo - Engineer
Ricky started as an intern at interface recording studios, Cologne and then moved to Hambourg where he
was PT-Op / assistant at Matthias Arfmann's "Turtle bay country club" and worked with artists such as Patrice and Yello.
The latter then took him back to Cologne, where they recorded the 'Nile' album during 2 years in the Dierks studios. That was 2006 when they bought the Neve Console and started looking for their own place.
His first project in Supow was the edit and mix of Patrice's "Raw and Uncut" album/DVD. A nice goodbye project for both of them, after almost 10 years on the road together.
