Production & Recording
So you have a song and are ready to record? Work with our experienced producers and engineers to sculpt a unique sound with full access to our carefully curated collection of vintage and modern equipment spread across multiple spaces in our studios.
Make sure your hard work done in the studio doesn't go to waste by having your track mixed to the highest industry standards. Our engineers take raw recordings and turn them into radio-ready, playlist-busting mixes for all genres, with your vision for the track leading the way.
Let us ensure your music translates through all systems. We'll guarantee your master is delivered at a commercial level, allowing it to compete with artists globally in playlists and on the radio.
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 while continuing to help smaller, undiscovered artists to reach their full potential.
Our studio was designed to the highest specification by world-renowned designers, Whitemark Ltd. (The Hit Factory – New York & Miami, Abbey Road – London, Real World Studios – Bath, Strongroom Studios – London). Blast offers endless creative possibilities in a professional, friendly and relaxed atmosphere, working with our network of experienced industry engineers and producers.
Our versatile and spacious live room can be used by performers from any genre. We use 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.
Our sizeable control room is centred around our 24 channel Solid State Logic AWS900 console, with full AWSomation and DAW Control. Monitoring comes from a range of first-rate industry names including Adam Audio and Yamaha. Full-range monitoring is delivered by our Exigy monitors, around which the room is designed; perfect for detailed, non-fatiguing listening. The control room is equipped with outboard gear from esteemed audio brands such as Neve, Crane Song, Pendulum, Manley, Chandler, Empirical Labs, Urei, Universal Audio and more.
We run a powerful Mac Pro and Pro Tools HDX rig with a variety of plug-ins from Universal Audio, Fab Filter, Plugin Alliance, Soundtoys, Arturia, ToonTrack among others.
