I mix my arse off

James Lloyd-Wyatt - Ginger on SoundBetter

I want to make your music into your favourite record. I mix like my life depends on it, because it does. It’s my specialty, my calling and my passion. My promise to you is to bring a listening experience like no other, to bring depth, clarity and impact to you music so it connects you to audiences.

What if there was a better way to make records? What if a high-end studio was built to get the best out of you and into your recordings and mixes?
Whether you’re a band, instrumentalist, rapper or singer-songwriter, Ginger Recording offers a fresh, made-to-measure approach to recording, mixing and production - giving you the creative tools you need, without compromising on technical excellence.
Collaboration and chemistry are at the heart of the Ginger experience, starting with the layout.
The extra-large control room can house an entire band: drums, guitars, bass, piano and vocals are all recorded in the same space, with plenty of room for the technical team as well.
This creates the sort of intimate atmosphere that traditional high-end studios simply can’t match: however, the studio can also be customised to capture every sonic element with near-total separation and clarity.
Not to brag or anything, but Justin Bieber, Flume, Lil Nas X, Wu-Tang Clan, Jason Derülo, and Skrillex are just some of the artists that have caught lightning in a bottle at Ginger.
So if you want to elevate your art as well, hit us up!
