Hope everyone has a good one, or at least a better start than we have, unfortunately our studio was flooded luckily all the gear was rescued but definitely not the way anyone would want to start the new year.
On the brighter side, we have been very busy lately working on a number of different projects which we’re very excited about. We’re hoping 2016 is going to be a very exciting year for MU!
