All Nighter Studios is a new project from one London creative who converted a church into a multi-room studio featuring podcast rooms, production and DJ rooms, video editing suites and office spaces.
The new studio space opened up for the first time in mid-May, offering rooms from just £1 per hour. Running with the slogan “Making Creativity Affordable”, All Nighter Studios offers each room for no more than £15 an hour.
“Growing up in London and making it as a musician was difficult when recording studios were hard to come by and music equipment was costing a fortune. One day, the founders were reminiscing about summer school clubs and how getting free time in the studio to practise was a struggle to perfect their craft," All Nighter Studios tells Mixmag.
"This then gave them a lightbulb moment to create a space for up-and-coming musicians looking for reasonably priced rooms to get their creative juices flowing. It's important to have this space in London, they felt, as there are so many creatives with hidden talent. Giving this space will allow anyone to step out of their comfort zone and find a new hobby they will love. Having a space to learn, creative and make noise is a dream come true."
Studio and rehearsal spaces will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Creatives are encouraged to become a member for quick and easy access to the studio space.
The DJ studio rooms come equipped with Pioneer CDJ-3000s, a Pioneer DJM-900NXS2 mixer, and a Pioneer XDJ-XZ controller, as well as industry-standard speakers and soundproof rooms.
The new studio space follows suit of recent artist-led projects in the same vein, including Batu’s 2021-launched free-to-access music studio in Bristol which became the first of its kind, and SHERELLE’s recent project with AIAIAI launching studio spaces and workshops.
