Tucked away in The Premises Studios, this spacious acoustically balanced mix room (right) was designed and built by John Flynn (Brit Grove, Angel, Sarm etc) and comes with its own separate overdub room, machine room and storage. For the past three years this has been Ash Workman’s Mix Room where he mixed lots of successful albums and artists. Natural light in both rooms, three sets of air-conditioning, fresh-air induct, floating rooms with oak floors, cable channels, etc.

Would suit any successful artist, producer, songwriter or mix engineer looking for their own base in a vibrant creative environment. Alternatively, this would make a spacious film edit suite.
