Award-winning Music Production, Ghost Production, Professional Mixing and Apple Certified Mastering Studios

Trusted by

We Care Because You Do.

A.I. assisted production, self-mixing and self-mastering are for those who don’t value their work. We’re here to cater for those that do, those that take a pride in their music and don’t want their hard work smothered by aliasing, distorted by quantisation error, or muddled with a slew of improper practices.

With over 30 years experience, our studios are equipped with world-class engineers and hardware. Our production work has sold millions, earning platinums and we’re trusted to mix and/or master for artists such as Nicky Holloway, the Chainsmokers and David Guetta amongst many more signed to labels such as Polydor, Sony BMG, Toolroom, Black Hole, Anjuna and many more.

More about

Polishing Your Productions

If you’re stuck on a project or feel it needs that something extra, or a sprinkling of “fairy dust”, we can collaborate on your project with you. Whether it requires some essential sound design, an arrangement redesign, or the character of classic samplers, keyboards, modules or esoteric hardware we can help you achieve your vision. There is no requirement to credit our work with collaboration projects.

Apple Certified Mastering

Any producer should be concerned with how their project is represented during playback. We’re an Apple Certified Mastering House so your music receives the Apple certification, meaning you receive more consumer hits and more chance of hitting the Apple Playlists.

You can trust your music in the hands of qualified professionals relying on industry recognised hardware such as the SPL Iron Mastering Compressor, SPL Mastering EQ, Massive Passive, API Compressors & EQ, SSL Compressors & EQ’s, Chandler Mastering Limiters & EQ’s and Manley Compressors.
