Shock and Awe Studios

We are a recording and rehearsal studio and function as a hub to the creative community in North London.

Our live room sounds fantastic and is big enough for a 4-5 piece band or string section to record live. In fact we did quite a few "all live in the room, no headphones" classic albums over the years.

We take big pride in our very comprehensive selection of vintage and new mics, great mic preamps and compressors as well as a range of drum kits (from a 50ies Ajax kit, over a 60ies Rogers kit to a big modern Sonor) and amp selection.

Over the years many bigger and smaller bands have recorded and rehearsed at our facility including Wolf People, McQueen, Tricity Vogue & Dusty Limits as well as commercial clients like Boosey & Hawkes & Lufthansa.

Our chief engineer Stevan Krakovic has been shortlisted for the "Breakthrough Engineer of the Year" in the MPG Awards 2011 and "Breakthrough Producer of the Year" in the MPG Awards 2012.

We facilitate the creative process of making and releasing music for artists and musicians from providing the facilities and equipment to do so as well as the expertise in co-writing, recording, mixing and producing to the final release.

As a creative hub we can tap into a big pool of collaborators including artists, session musicians, photographers, video makers and vocal coaches to name a few and more than a few future bands and collaborations started at our studio or were introduced to each other by us.

In a nutshell we connect people and make things happen and have ten years of experience of doing so.
