The Suite

London recording studio video feature

Based at the Utopia Village on Chalcot Road, London, the Suite is an amazing legacy of the original Utopia Studios which spawned so many hit records and producers in the 70's and 80's. It is now a calm and relaxing studio space that is ideally suited to bands and people looking for a discreet place to work having been carefully restored by studio owner Andrew Maurice. We are delighted to feature a unique video feature shot by Andrew.

To bridge the historic with the new, a live web cam is ready for streaming gigs on the net and 'live' broadcast recordings! You can have a choice of experienced engineers including chief engineer, Paul Mysiak, who's worked with artists including The The, Divine Comedy, Howie B, Patricia Morrison, Desree, Kingmaker, Freestylers

The Method and Erasure. You also have on tap a resident football journalist (very handy!) and for the lethargic in need of refreshment, a BMX is ready for use.

The Suite has a really great feel where artists are comfortable and happy at a pretty good price to boot. Well worth a visit!
