About

Welcome to Café Music Studios, a professional recording studio full of style, creativity and atmosphere. Situated in the heart of Bow, we are the most artist-centered recording environment in town.

Famed for its warm ambience, Café Music has been favourited by many artists including Brian Eno, Coldplay, Imogen Heap, KT Tunstall, King Creosote, Jon Hopkins & Brett Anderson.

We believe in providing not only the best audio quality but also help and guidance through every step of the recording process.

At Café Music Studios we have 2 recording suites. The main studio is a full live facility with well-honed acoustics and an amazing feel. The room is equipped with high-end analog class-A preamps, EQs, compressors and array of vintage/brand new microphones for state-of-art recording quality.

The second room is our piano room. It is acoustically treated for maximum clarity and can also be used for our additional mixing/mastering services – we welcome mixing and mastering requests for ongoing projects from other studios.

Our extensive skills and knowledge in mixing and mastering, combined with well-tuned room acoustics and precision monitoring, results in pristine mixes and masters ready for professional release.
