Following on from the BRIT Awards 2022 ceremony at the O2, we would like to send a HUGE congratulations to the 6 winning artists who mixed, mastered and/or recorded here at Metropolis.
Adele went home with three awards for Album of The Year (30), Artist of The Year and Song of The Year (Easy On Me), all of which were recorded at Metropolis.
This isn’t the first time we’ve had the pleasure of working with Adele, having previously been her studio of choice for two other albums (21 and 25). We are also extremely proud of our Studio Engineer, Liam Nolan, who won two Grammys for his work on her album, 25.
It comes as no surprise that Little Simz won her nomination for Best New Artist. We were lucky enough to have Little Simz choose Metropolis as one of her recording and mastering facilities. Our Mastering Engineer, Matt Colton, had the pleasure of mastering her debut album, “Sometimes I Might Be Introvert”.
Having received her first-ever BRIT nominations this year, we couldn’t be happier for Becky Hill being awarded Best Dance Act. Our Mastering Engineer, Stuart Hawkes, had the opportunity to master some of her tracks such as “My Heart Goes (La Di Da)” and “Better Off Without You”.
The BRITs in 2022 saw a number of changes to awards categories in order to create even more opportunities for artists to be recognised. The recipient of the BRITs’ first-ever Songwriter of the Year award tonight was Ed Sheeran.
We are always delighted to be Ed’s studio of choice. Our Mastering Engineer, Stuart Hawkes, has mastered some of Ed’s work, such as “÷”, and our Chief Studio Engineer, Paul Norris, worked with him on his second album, “X”.
Having previously won 2 BRIT awards last year, Dua Lipa took home the gold for Best Pop/R&B Act this year.
We’ve really enjoyed seeing the songstress go from strength to strength over the years and are even happier that we got to play a small part in her journey. Her remix album, Club Future Nostalgia, was mastered by our very own Matt Colton.
The genre-straddling producer known for his work with Adele, Little Simz and Michael Kiwanuka, walked away winning Best Producer at this year’s BRIT awards.
Having had worked on award-winning projects including two of the five albums nominated for album of the year at this year’s BRIT awards (Adele’s “30” and Little Simz’ “Sometimes I Might Be Introvert”) we are grateful that he chose Metropolis as one of his bases.
