We are now well and truly into 2016 and it looks like all you musicians and bands are eager to go after the Christmas break. Our weekday evening and weekend rehearsal slots have been full to bursting since we’ve been open again this year!
We still do have plenty of weekday rehearsal slots available, which is perfect for students, freelancers and night shift workers and for the rest of January until the the end of February we’re going to provide all additional backline for no extra charge for any off-peak (Mon-Fri 10:00-18:00) rehearsal bookings. So all you need to bring is your guitars/basses/bassoons etc!
2015 was a great year for the recording studio side of things, with some great work being produced here with a wide range of artists. From the black metal/d-beat carnage of Wolfbastard, which was released on UKEM records, to a live location recording swing classics with Dominic Halpin and the Honey B’s, check the promo here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V76q3LSqfPE and many more.
2016 should be another great year in the studio, January has already seen the mixing of an album from blackened death metal group Burial and an EP by Noiseboy regulars The Disappeared, with many more exciting projects being booked in the weeks to follow.
As of March 1st, our recording studio rates will increase from £15/hour to £20/hour and a full days session (10:00-19:00) will now be £160. This is to reflect the investment in equipment over the last two years and to enable us to continue to add to our audio arsenal!
The good news is that we’re offering the old rates to anyone who makes a studio booking by February 16th for any time up until the end of May so if you want to get the best possible deal get in touch ASAP!
