After 15 years of throwing parties in the UK and beyond, we’ve decided to spread our wings a little further with the opening of the Secretsundaze Studios. Based in the heart of the Secretsundaze HQ at The Laundry in London Fields, East London, it’s the home of our artistic community, our own personal studio and the perfect space to create, record and collaborate. If you’re looking to hone your craft, you can book tuition sessions with one of our immensely talented in-house tutors, and the studios are also open for general hire with one of our in-house sound engineers available upon request.
Making the studios an extension of what we do with Secretsundaze has allowed us a lot more freedom and creativity to work on different projects and to open up to our existing audience. We’ve also been able to hook up with some old friends and people we’ve worked with over the years, like Tony Nwachukwu who was a regular guest at our sister party ‘all over my face’, as well as George Levings aka Secretsundaze recording artist Endian and Commix and our good friend Sam Jones from SoundThread.
We’re looking forward to more of the Out The Box sessions and we’ve already enjoyed welcoming a range of artists to work with, including Henry Wu, K15, Harvey Sutherland, Damiano Von Erckert and Matias Aguayo. We’re also excited to be running various teaching and tutoring programs alongside other regular studio projects.
Our studio provides a comprehensive production, recording and mixdown facility in a comfortable and creative environment. It’s the perfect space in which to make your music stand out, with different valve stages from outboard gear helping to give that analog edge to a digital project. The air-conditioned studio is available for hire with flexible hours, at affordable rates, across daytime, evening and night sessions, 7 days a week, with a sound engineer available upon request.
We offer a range of tuition options for students to learn how to make music in a professional studio environment. Making use of both software and hardware, all of our course programs are taught by professional producers and engineers with years of experience. Catering for those from a beginner level to the more advanced, and with small classes or private 1-2-1 tuition, we can offer training to suit a variety of needs.

Add those final elements of warmth, character and presence to your tracks and have your projects professionally mixed and digitally mastered by one of our experienced engineers using the finest outboard analogue hardware and digital software. In addition to unattended sessions, we also offer the option for you to attend the session and work alongside one of our engineers.
