SAY Award Won, Neptune Prize Nominated

Anna Meredith’s debut album “Varmints” (Moshi Moshi Records) is the winner of Scottish Album of the Year and nominated for the Neptune Prize. The album also acclaimed great reviews on Pitchfork, Dazed and more.
It was recorded in our SSL Room and Neve Room, Mixed in Neve Room by Shuta Shinoda.

Hot Chip’s front man Alexis recorded his solo album “Piano” (Moshi Moshi Records) live using our Bluthner piano and my favourite microphone, RCA 44BX (1940s ribbon mic) for his vocal. Fairchild 670 and 660 added a bit of sparkle on the mixes.

It was a real pleasure to work with an artist who I used to listen when I was a teenager. Neil Hagerty (ex- Royal Trux) spent one day at Hackney Road studio with Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip) at the end of their Europe tour 2016. Released on Drag City.

YAK “ALAS Salvation”
Brilliant live band, I believe they are going to change the music scene.
Some of tracks were recorded in our SSL room.

Baio (Bassist of Vampire Weekend) remixes, Fool You’ve Landed a track from Mumford and the Sons EP “Johannesburg” and his new single “Don’t Fight Fate” came out for Amazon music. Both of them were mixed, Engineered by Shuta Shinoda.
