LA On the Buttons

From hardware hero Egyptian Lover and MPC maestro Madlib to modern-day super producers like Beck and Benny Blanco, LA’s recording pedigree is the stuff of legend.

Here are a few of our favorite local hangouts:

The popularity of latinx, psych and an infinite number of musical micro-scenes remain concrete proof that any musician can make waves this side of the Pacific.

All studios are cleaned and sanitised as often as possible, but it’s still crucial for you to wipe down and sanitise the kit at the beginning and end of each session. In the UK, DE and IE we provide antibacterial spray and paper towels at every site, and in the US we provide antibacterial wipes.
