About

Dirty Deal Audio is a sonic entity. Our love and enthusiasm towards sound and music have materialised in a strong team of collaborators and friends. These days we offer high-quality solutions for a wide range of audio work that’s recognized locally and internationally. At the same time, our perennial presence in the non-governmental organisations sector allows us to keep working on our self-initiated projects pushing our technical possibilities even further.

In 2006, Dirty Deal Audio childhood home (along with its adopted twin sister — the independent theatre Dirty Deal Teatro) was located at the Andrejsala creative district in Rīga as a part of the Dirty Deal Cafe’s cultural hub.

During the last decade DDA name kept popping up in association with countless independent scene events, social activities and record releases. We’ve carried out (and still sometimes do) a variety of tasks and functions, such as gathering a team of musicians, organising networking and showcasing events Treniņu Trešdienas (Training Wednesdays), Baltic States’ producers, instrumentalists and vocalists camp Baltic Trail and many other irregular events and public performances, as well as releasing music, producing the radio show Netīrais Darījums (Dirty Deal), monitoring the Latvian independent music scene, different social activities, including working with the Latvian Association of Non-Governmental Organizations of Contemporary Culture, hosting Ambisonics spatial audio workshops and lectures, setting up several sound recording / editing studios, in later years working with producing music and sound design for ads and brands, crafting entire audio identities for brands, exploring new sonic horizons and creating an Ambisonics spatial sound editing studio — all of this while still being successful at our respective creative careers.
