This past March, The Detroit Entrepreneur released a list of our top 5 recording studios in Michigan, which included popular studios like Royal House Recording, Parallel Sounds, and more.
Today, we had the opportunity to follow up with MixedByPhilip, founder and head engineer of Parallel Sounds Studio(s). Ranking at number 2, the engineer responded with, “we are heading for #1” upon announcement. He is doing just that.
Now entering his 9th year in the industry, Phil Saponaro combined his skills, vision, and dedication to bring Metro Detroit’s future stars a quality, comfortable space to create. From recording with the iconic Jeremih to rising local artists, MixedbyPhil has become a familiar name in the music community.
I was really shocked when we made #2 because a lot of the studios on the list were a lot nicer then mine. They have hundreds of thousands of dollars in equipment, when do not just yet. The support from the people I work with is what must of did it. I love them!– MixedByPhilip
Confident entrepreneurs stand by their careers, striving to be the best of the best. With roots in entrepreneurship, he humbly yet boldly states his studio is deserving of the #1 spot. Many can humbly yet boldly say the same, based on positive testimonies alone.
I really think for #1 it’s just going to take us building up our cosmetics. I already know we have the best engineers in Michigan and we are constantly getting better. In all humbleness, nobody in Michigan can compete with our quality. Once my team and I open more fancy multi million dollar studios and (hopefully) steal Julian (of Royal House) I don’t think will have much competition.– MixedByPhilip on how he aims to reach #1.
