A comprehensive approach to producing modern musicians...
TapeLab understands that it's difficult for career-minded artists to balance 'art' and 'commerce'. So, we set out to create a production experience that encourages artists to create authentic music and sustainable growth. Think of us as your creative partner, production team, mentor, and best friend.
One of our specialties is using structure and arrangement to tell stories. Although you've probably had releases before, our aim is to create your sound. Songs that feel like "you". So, if you feel like your sound or vision is under-developed then we want to make sure you finish this process feeling confident and proud and what you're creating.

Pascal Oorts, TapeLab founder
an introduction to our work
a thousand times (lyric video)
“Tapelab is a great place for me to work on music. Pascal Oorts is a talented producer with a very smooth workflow. In no time he can give my tracks a sound that really pops out of the speakers. He also likes to explain to you, how you can achieve certain things with arrangement and sound. We can keep talking about sound, music and all that nerdy synth stuff. Pascal is also very eager to learn and always challenges himself to solve creative 'problems'. In short, Tapelab takes your songs to a higher level.”
- Chackie Jam (Joey Brocken, main songwriter Chackie Jam)
“Working with Pascal from Tapelab for us was a great experience and we still continue working with Pascal. His insights and skills for creating good pop songs are very extraordinary. Since we work together our Spotify streams increased a lot. Thanx Pascal!”
I’ve worked with Tapelab on a number of my own, alternative artist projects as well as songs for commercial briefs. I was super impressed by Pascal’s creativity and inside-out knowledge of his craft on both occasions. He has expert strategies for building energy in a song; is sure to pick the coolest possible sounds for a production; and somehow delivers an impressive, highly detailed and nuanced result within a tight timeframe. If you choose to have Tapelab produce your song, you can rest assured you are in safe hands with someone who will pour all their energy and knowledge into the production to deliver nothing short of exceptional quality. And it’s not limited to production! For songwriter(s), you will be given invaluable feedback that will instantly uplevel your song; for artists, Tapelab will introduce you to a whole new sonic world you didn’t even know existed - and guide you towards a signature sound you can be truly proud of. Moreover, the sessions are engaging and fun - you will leave the studio buzzing with a feeling that only great music and creative synergy can bring.
“I work with Pascal during the mix phase of my tracks. Together we go through the different layers and mix decisions. With his sincere and useful feedback, we adjust until satisfied. It’s a pleasure to work with Pascal. It has helped to step up my game with each new track and release.”
