I often work from Kluster, my studio in Limehouse, East London.

It's the creative centre in a hub of DIY artist studios and practice spaces. We sometimes put on small gigs and have filmed a few music videos here over the years.

The studio itself has a tight, upfront sound that is especially great for drums. People I record with often say they're surprised at what we could achieve in this size space. 

 

I also work from other studios, and often track somewhere else and use Kluster for overdubs. It depends on logistics and budgets. Let's chat about what would best for your project.
