We've been making records since 2001. From singles to full albums we've got you covered.

Our previous work has been played on national radio, featured on TV, released worldwide and reviewed in industry heavyweights including Kerrang! and Rock Sound.

We believe that nothing beats the personal touch. We work closely with you during production to get the best out of your performances and achieve the sound that's right for you. With years of experience and tried-and-tested gear and techniques we work tirelessly on each mix to produce killer sounding records.

 Music is our passion and we have created a professional yet relaxed environment for bands to do what they do best.

Located in Hilsea, Portsmouth, we're just off the M27 and a stones throw from Hilsea train station.


We have some major renovation work taking place in December 2018 as we build our new recording facilities. The new studio has been designed by legendary studio designer Howard Turner and will feature larger control room and live room, modern design, air conditioning and heating, new dynamic lighting, new recording equipment and more. You can read more about it in our news section below.

We will be updating the website and social media with our progress throughout the build.

Want to get in early? We are taking bookings for 2019 now!


Every recording project is different so we quote for each project individually. Get in touch with us to discuss your recording needs and we will work out a custom quote based on your requirements.
