The mastering of the REFURBISHED record was done by mastering guru Dragan Tanaskovic (Bohus Sound Recording) - He has mastered all Big Swede releases to date (about 160 tracks) and there are a few more coming this year!

TBT - BS on the drums in Germany!

TBT - Somewhere in Germany about a 100 years ago, before they installed the cyborg parts inside of me - Used to spend 24/7 behind those things - Still love the drums and banging them while recording tracks - But as you know, I'm part human, part machine now and sometimes I'm being tweaked and the machine part is being used.
