Situated in Wembley, North West London, UK - Sub Bubble Studios is a newly created complex incorporating recording studios, a warehouse space and private indoor skate park.
Whilst the core services at Sub Bubble are Recording, Mixing & Production the studios also boast an impressive warehouse space. The space can cater for a variety of uses ranging from photo and video shoots, showcase gigs through to full-scale live events.
Label Manager and Director Ian Bennett explains "Over the past eight months we're created a veritable smorgasbord of delights for the visual and recording artist. There's no other location in London (or the UK for that fact) where you can write, record, rehearse, skate, slam-dunk, spin tunes, play pool and rave. We have a very simple ethos at the centre of our enterprise... nurture and develop talent from the ground up, support from all angles to benefit all and the greater good. What we have here is more than just a recording studio, it's a bubble of creativeness right next door to one of the world's greatest venues."
The pro recording studio facility consists of two air-conditioned control rooms connected to a central Live Room and additional Recording Lounge on the floor below. The space has been designed to be completely flexible. As well as the acoustically treated recording studios themselves we have tie lines in place so that any area of the building, including the adjoining warehouse area and skate park can potentially be used for recording purposes.
Studio 1 is Sub Bubble's premier recording studio and control/mixing room, centered around the amazing SSL AWS 900+ SE console locked to a fully expanded Pro Tools HD5 rig. Studio 2 at Sub Bubble is a production and editing suite, boasting a separate vocal booth and full connectivity to the live room, Studio 2 and the vocal booth can be used as its own space or fully utilised in conjunction with Recording Studio 1.

Sub Bubble Recordings, now on its second release, focuses on underground house sounds covering the more techy end of the spectrum. Launching with fledging production duo Matt Williams and Bahar Canca. As the label expands it will naturally grow to cover wider styles of music. Each release will include high profile, credible remixers from the cream of the dance scene.
Superdark Music focuses on indie, left of field electronica and grew from a reaction to the mainstream and tired music industry.
