About RandK Systems
R&K Systems is a music production company focused on studio recording, gigs, pa hire and live sound for new & emerging bands.
We have developed an affordable system for DIY studio recording. We record bands and then work with a range of producers who mix and master the final result for release on streaming platforms. This delivers high quality music on a tiny budget.
