“Metropolis exists to do one thing: Help an artist and their music sound exceptional. We put the artist first…always. Everything else is just noise.”
Richard Connell – CEO of Metropolis Studios
With an exceptional team of engineers, assistants, runners, and technicians, along with top-of-the-line equipment available for all clients, you’ll have everything you need to achieve your vision with sonic excellence. Our five main studios are versatile and can cater to any artist, producer, or engineer’s needs – whether that be a large string recording, collaborative writing session, full band tracking, or just a vocal session, we have it all covered. With all four studios offering distinct analogue consoles with Stereo and 5.1 mixing capability, alongside our variety of production rooms, we’re fit for all requirements.
Mixing is the intricate process of combining individual tracks, adjusting their levels, tonal qualities, and spatial positioning to create a cohesive and polished sound. It involves refining the balance, clarity, and depth of each element within a song, ensuring that vocals, instruments, and effects work together harmoniously. At Metropolis, our expert engineers and cutting-edge technology bring out your music’s full potential. With a track record of working on renowned albums and collaborating with acclaimed artists across genres (Ed Sheeran, AJ Tracey, Little Mix), we deliver exceptional results.
From traditional stereo mastering to Dolby Atmos, we offer a comprehensive range of services tailored to meet the unique needs of every artist and project. With expertise in all mediums and formats such as vinyl and streaming, we raise your music to new heights. The calibre of artists and projects our clients trust us with is a testament to the quality of our work, which is reflected in our numerous Grammy and Mercury Prize accolades.
Our Dolby-certified Atmos studio is the highest resolution in the UK. We built the room to enable both established and emerging artists to unlock the exciting potential of spatial audio. The control room pursues a flexible ‘hub studio’ approach allowing for multiple mixing desk-based workflows and live broadcasts in any immersive format.
