Artist services company Platoon has opened Platoon7, a new state-of-the-art recording studios at Tileyard in London’s King Cross.
Platoon’s new studios will offer artists a bespoke space to fuel in-person collaboration post-pandemic, it says.
Designed by Platoon and Chris Walls and Eleni Papadopoulou from Level Acoustic Design, Platoon7 includes three recording studios, two Dolby Atmos rooms, a content capture studio, podcast booth, writing rooms, artist lounge and an education lab to provide in-person and virtual workshops.
Each of the 10 rooms are interconnected, allowing for simultaneous use of the space across writing camps and multi-artist recordings.
The Dolby Atmos rooms utilise spatial-audio technology to provide immersive audio experiences, enabling artists to mix music with multidimensional sound and clarity.
The studios feature an array of new and vintage instruments, including a classic Hammond C3 Organ, Steinway Upright piano and more.
The studios also offer remote recording capabilities, allowing Platoon artists to work together from wherever they are in the world in high-resolution audio.
Fraser T Smith, who has worked with the likes of Adele, Stormzy, Kano and Dave, is among the artists set to record in the space.
In addition to providing a creative hub for Platoon’s own artists and creators, such as the Apple Music tipped Holly Humberstone, Platoon will be engaging with local organisations and community groups to offer the space free of charge to aspiring talent.
