“There's something about Rita that makes working with her in the studio a creatively safe space as a female artist.”

“I truly couldn't imagine this song without her perspective and her wholesome kindness to sound, it was an interactive, soul intensive, experimental at times and musical journey that we took together.”

Keely Denham on the production of "Leaves"

Rita is a songwriter, music producer and artist based in Lisbon. Growing up amongst the urban music scene in Porto, was an environment full of inspiration and stimulation for Rita to feed off the hip hop and beatboxing artists who influenced her.


She started writing, producing and performing her own music under the name ARTBEAT from 18-23 years old. Rita developed the art of beatbox from a very young age and started playing piano at the same time. Those skills have hugely contributed to the way she creates music today and all the gigs she played. She won a Beatbox battle in 2014 and also participated in the Beatbox National Championship of the same year, being the only woman in the game. Also attended various live TV and radio gigs.


In an open relationship with poetry and the piano - her true love will always be the music & its truth.

Questions about booking your first session?

Our Executive Producers are here to walk you through the process.

How do remote sessions work?

After you’ve booked your remote session, there are three simple steps in the preparation, completion and delivery of your files.

1. Preparation
Download and install Zoom (https://zoom.us/download). Ensure you have a stable internet connection (we recommend using an ethernet cable) and good quality headphones or speakers to enjoy your experience.

2. Remote Session
Attend your session live and collaborate with the artist you booked.

3. Download your files
Download your files after the session. You will receive the download link within 24h after the session!

How far along in my track do I need to be before booking a session?

At any stage. It can even just be an idea or a simple voice recording. Our resident producers will take your idea and turn it into a reality. Our average full production cost is €399, but if you’re not sure or want to get a specific quote, just get in touch.

How far in advance can I book?

You can book up to one week in advance. We don’t accept bookings fewer than 7 days before any session. That’s because we want to give our residents enough time to fully prepare for your session. To make it one worth having and remembering!

What happens after I make a booking?

We’ll ask you to fill out a super quick form to give us more info about your track or album. You can tell us details like the track name, bpm and a reference track. We’ll also provide you with a link where you can send us your music files (i.e. any bounces, DAW session file and music score if you have one).

What happens during my session?

Before the session, you’ll receive links to join the live HQ audio and video stream for the session. Please access these links at least 5 minutes before the session is due to begin, to mitigate any technical issues you may encounter.
During the session you will typically introduce yourself and the musical piece, chat about your intentions, arrangement etc, and we jump right into recording or producing. A 30 minutes recording session usually allows for 2 to 3 full takes with time left over to go back over specific parts. We’ll wrap up and talk about some next steps to get complete.

What's the sound quality like during my session?

You will be able to listen to the high quality audio feed directly from the artist’s DAW. It’s like you’re right there in the studio - no sound compromise!

What do I receive after my session?

You will receive every take that the artist recorded, according to the audio specifications that you have requested. These will be the raw session files as well as bounces of each recorded track (wav). You will receive an email with the download link within 24h.

My track is already under development. What’s the correct format to send to you?

We accept WAV or AIFF files at sampling rates of 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96kHz, and bit depths of either 16, 24 or 32 bit. Note that for orchestra recording sessions, we only accept 48khz at 24bits. Please supply us with mono or stereo files, clearly named and without audio clipping. You will need to provide multi-tracks that are consolidated or bounced from the start point of your song (bar 1 beat 1 or start time code). All files must be of the same duration, sample rate and bit depth. Please feel free to contact us if you're not sure.

What’s the cancellation policy?

We offer a full refund on cancellations up to 7 days prior to the scheduled recording session. Within 7 days of the session, cancellations will incur a 50% session fee. In the case of a no-show, you will not be refunded. Our satisfaction guarantee means if you’re not happy with your session, just let us know and we’ll issue a refund.
