About us

EQ Studios have been providing services dedicated to the needs of singers, songwriters, voice-overs, auditions, karaoke, and schools education for the past 20 years.

Most recently we re-arranged/remixed Lovable, a beautiful track written by Sweetie Ire featuring Damon Albarn (Blur/Gorillaz). This is the latest in a long line of successes from 1988's top ten Male Stripper by Man to Man, 1999s top twenty Tell Me Ma by Sham Rock and our recent success in securing a world-wide singles and album deal with EMI for Casino Internationale. "Whether we're working with an international pop star or an aspiring group of school students, we deliver with the same high levels of dedication in a professional and friendly atmosphere." says Studio Manager, John Hamilton.

Housed in a purpose built studio complex in North Kensington, incorporating separate reception and recreational areas, the air conditioned and naturally lit control room runs a Mackie D8B Mixing Console into 24 tracks of Logic 8 housed in a Power Mac.

Akai S3000 Sampler, tons of synths, acoustic and electric guitars, together with a separate acoustic area, make this the ideal project studio for writers, programmers and performers alike.

Our recent clients have included:

Damon Albarn (Blur/Gorillaz)
Kate Silverton (BBC Morning News) Voice-over.
Phil Larsen (Mary J Blige, Enrique Iglesias and AQUA)
Andy Parker (Craig David, Truesteppers)
Phoebe 1 (MOBO Award Best Rapper)
Claire Harding (2005 UK Songsearch Winner) 
All major labels including EMI, BMG, Universal, Sony, Jive, ITV, BBC and C4
