Blast Recording is North East’s leading music production facility.
We are dedicated to helping you reach your full creative potential – whether you are just starting out, or are an industry veteran.
Blast Recording Studios
Constructed in a late nineteenth century Victorian glassworks in Ouseburn, the creative hub of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Blast Recording has been the birthplace of chart-toppers and indie legends.
The studio was established in 2006 by the team behind the hugely successful independent record label Demolition Records. Blast Recording has opened its doors to some of the music industry’s biggest names like Sting, Arctic Monkeys and Sam Fender, while continuing to help smaller, undiscovered artists to reach their full potential.
Our studio was designed by White Mark (Abbey Road, Hit Factory, & Real World Studios among many others). You won’t find anything quite like it in the North East of England. It is a beautiful space that can host anything from Rock bands to Podcasts, and Chamber Ensembles to Rappers.
We feature microphones from Neumann, Telefunken, Soundelux, Wagner, Royer and more. We offer our carefully curated selection of amplifiers and keyboards to all artists recording with us. A dedicated vocal booth with foldable doors means that you can create separation between instruments when needed.
The control room is centred around a 24 channel Solid State Logic AWS 900 console, with motorised faders, switchable E/G-series EQ, SSL’s Superanalogue mic pres and the classic G-bus compressor.
The studio also features equipment from the likes of Crane Song, Chandler, Neve, Phoenix, DW Fearn, Urei, Empirical Labs, and more. Monitoring comes from Adam Audio, Exigy, and Yamaha.
You can find a comprehensive list of our equipment on request. The list includes some equipment from Glassworks, our sister studio. If there is anything specific that would would like to use for your session, please feel free to ask.
Some of our previous clients include:
Sam Fender, Arctic Monkeys, Take That, Sting, Alvvays, Little Comets, New York Dolls, Thin Lizzy, Therapy?, Married at First Sight, and many more!
