People often ask, “is Cranky Music a recording studio, or a home, or what is it?” Well truth be told, it is a little bit of everything. It is definitely a recording studio, a studio that houses a Pro Tools digital recording system as well as a unique collection of high quality microphones and outboard gear. These, coupled with the experience and musical know-how gathered over the years guarantee a great end product for every client that walks into Cranky Music.
It is often a home too, where talented musicians come to make music, rehearse, and create special moments together. We also eat, hang out, have some deep or trivial conversations, depending on the topic of the day. Pretty much what a family does, or, should be doing, on a daily basis.
Established in 2012, Cranky Music Sdn Bhd is home to Malaysian music producer Aubrey Suwito and his wife, songwriter Lin Lizhen. This dynamic duo has been responsible for creating numerous hit recordings while providing musical direction for countless live performances.
The resume of artistes that have passed through the studio doors include a who’s-who of Malaysian music with people like Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza, Jaclyn Victor, Faizal Tahir, Dayang Nurfaizah and Salamiah Hassan benefiting from the Cranky Music expertise.
So, “What would you get out of us here at Cranky Music? A great creative environment, an efficient work ethic that pays attention to detail, doused with a huge dose of musicality.” – Aubrey Suwito
