Recording studios in Derby

Hi all

My name is Dominic and I’m providing piano lessons in Derby.

Today I would like to talk about a few recording studios in Derby.

The studios and people I will talk about are people I had/have the chance to work with and are extremely professional and reliable.

I will also talk about the studios that have been recommended to me but I didn’t have the chance to work with yet.

OK let’s go…

74 Sounds

74sounds is based in Derby Mickleover. it is managed by Jason Marshall.

Jason has BA (hons) degree in music technology and he is a very good guitarist.

Jason is also very active in the world of music as a producer, musician and of course engineer.

He is also the manager of the funk/jazz band Oobleck based in Derby.

74sounds is very good for mastering and mixing.

On top of the cake, Jason is a very nice and positive person to work with!

It is definitely a very good place to go for producing your EP or album.


Dubrek studios

Dubrek studios are own and manage by Jay Dean.

There is a lot to say about the man but I will try to synthesize the best I can!

Jay started really early to have ants in his fingers and tickling electronic and music from the age of 8 by taking apart noisy toys and try to figure out how they work.

He quickly started to build his own electronic instrument and effect pedals guitar set, recording his friend’s bands on tapes.

Later on, he passes an electronic degree and started to work as a promoter and DJ in Derby, and this is where the list of experiences starts to go on and on… I invite you to visit the website of Dubrek Studios for more information.

Just to know that it is not only a place for recording, there is a cafe (really nice and welcoming), a rehearsal place, a venue for gigs as well!

Behind the counter, you can also find the really nice and cool Danielle Ross and probably other people that I never met yet.

They organize all sorts of events. It is a very active and alive music place in Derby!

They are really friendly and down to earth, but also very reliable and professional!

I can’t recommend them more!


Abbey Lane studios

I don’t know Abbey Lane Studios as I never had the chance to work with them yet, but they have been recommended to me a lot from my fellow musicians!

The few things I can say about them is that they are huge, obviously really competent and professional. I had the chance to listen to some of the recordings, mixing works they did and it was really impressive!

What I can do is provide you with some numbers:

  • They have 6 rehearsals rooms available
  • 2 large studios and vocal and acoustic room.
  • They are also very active and organize children party, aged 8+. It looks like a really fun day, it includes recording, photos shoots and all the thing you need to do for recording your own EP and album. even if the objective is not to create the next summer hit, this sounds really fun and a very good way to create fun memories!

Again, I never worked with those guys, but I never heard anything bad about them, just the contrary!


This is the list of recording studios there is in Derby that I wanted to talk about.

Now I chose those 3 because like I said, I have worked with two of them and they are extremely good and professional.

And the three studios are fundamentally different!

Each of them has their own personality and it depends on what you are looking for, but it is important to choose the studio that fit your music and your personality the best!

I will finish this post with a small list (very small) of other studios that I never work with for the moment.

I hope this will help you to find a good recording studio in Derby that fit your personality and your music the best!
