OUR PROFESSIONAL RECORDING STUDIO
Kore Studios is an acclaimed music production studio located in Acton, West London. We offer a range of vintage and modern recording gear, along with the services of veteran sound engineer George Apsion. Our music studio space offers exceptional recording and mixing facilities. From seasoned artists on major labels to unsigned acts and new talent, we have what is necessary to bring out the best in your sound. Read below to learn about our history and the services we offer.
Kore Studios was opened in 2003 by producer and mixing engineer, George Apsion. Founded on a modest setup comprising an Audient console and a Pro Tools HD rig, Kore began life as a trusted space to a faithful roster of independent labels.
Fifteen years on, we now offer one of the best-equipped and highly regarded music studios available for rent in the UK. Our music production services are unparalleled, and our expertise has helped a wide range of international labels and artists, both major and independent.
2010 saw one of the early highlights of Kore Studios’ history. We were awarded the coveted prize of ‘Best UK Studio’ from the Music Producers Guild, leading to international recognition and industry approval. This was a momentous achievement; over the period of a few years, we came to be regarded as one of the country’s foremost professional recording studios.
Our reputation as a premier production studio means that we have worked with some of the industry’s most acclaimed artists. Richard Ashcroft, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Roger Daltrey, and Amy Winehouse have all benefited from our music studio’s unique atmosphere, attentive staff, and reliable equipment.
Whilst maintaining this high standard of major label work, Kore Studios continue to nurture close ties with independent musicians, providing tailored recording and development packages that allow new talent to propel their careers forward.
In September 2014, Kore marked its 10 year anniversary with the installation of a new 32-channel API 1608 console. This further cemented its position as a music production studio of high distinction, staffed by one of the best producers and mixing engineers in London.
Award Winning Music production Studio
We were voted ‘Best UK Studio’ by the renowned Music Producers Guild in 2010:
"An interesting David and Goliath contest in the Best Studio category resulted in an unexpected triumph for Kore Studios. This relatively modest but well regarded and innovative facility in West London saw off the likes of AIR Lyndhurst and British Grove to gain industry recognition for the work of founder George Apsion, who has proved that with the right attitude, it is possible for new studios to flourish even in the current climate."
