It all started in Los Angeles. Gerardo Gamboa (aka Jerry) was born and raised in Costa Rica, but moved to California when he was 20.He of course came across so much music and ended up with the amazing vinyl collection we still have in our studio today.
His love for music didn't stop with vinyl. He was interested in music in general from listening to it to actually making it.
His Living Room was full of equipment.
A total bedroom producer, except it took over his entire living room.
After 40 yrs of living in L.A. he moved to Costa Rica with his family, built his dream Studio were he worked and lived his remaining years.
The Legacy now lives through the people that come to the studio and enjoy the everlasting Vibe that comes from music and the life that Jerry built around it.
