A History of Select Recording Studios

Back in 1998 a vision was made reality in London’s Kentish Town when Select Recording Studios was born and given a bricks and mortar home.

There it stayed, building a reputation for quality, flexibility, dedication and an appreciation of the various needs of artists from an eclectic array of genres until nine years ago when the big and ultimately correct decision was made to relocation to Wood Green in the north of the capital.

Select Recording Studio offers the perfect place to carry out that work, with the expert assistance of owner Paul Miles himself. It is fully equipped with exceptional digital recording kit, boasting a 56-channel mixing desk and powered by a Mac Pro music system. As such it is ideal for anyone, whether recording a demo, mixtape, single, EP or album. They’ve also worked with actors like Rupert Grint, most famous for portraying Ron Weasley in Harry Potter, for voice recordings. In terms of other gear, the studio is stocked with high quality microphones, virtual instruments and plugins as well as quality professional outboard equipment. The layout of the studio allows for a control room, live room, drum room as well as a vocal booth. This makes for a professional recording experience, while comfort and providing a relaxed, enjoyable experience are also high on Select’s agenda.

Paul comes with over twenty years of experience in the recording industry and benefits from the unique vision only acquired from having been both sides of the fence (as an artist and producer). In terms of his artistic career Paul has played on tour and recorded with bands signed to such major labels as Universal, Cherry Red and Universal. He knows just how much hard work and dedication it takes to get noticed in the world of modern music and equally how much of that hard work must be replicated in the studio. His experience writing on many albums and singles for UK and overseas record labels, not to mention music for radio and television commercials marks him out as a versatile and highly experienced professional. In terms of genre, he has worked on a staggering range from hip-hop, grime, dubstep and RnB to indie, metal, jazz and country.
