About Kore Studios
Kore Studios is an acclaimed music studio for rent in Acton, West London. Offering a range of vintage and modern recording gear and the services of veteran sound engineer, George Apsion, our recording and mixing facilities deliver exceptional music with an impeccable sound. From seasoned artists on major labels to unsigned acts and new talent, we have the full scope of experience and equipment necessary to bring out the best in all our clients. 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 comprised of analogue consoles and a Pro Tools HD rig, the music studio began life as a trusted base to a faithful roster of independent labels
Ten years on, we now offer one of the best equipped and highly regarded music studios available for rent in the UK. We provide unparalleled service and expertise to a wide range of international labels and artists, both major and independent.
In 2010, our achievements at Kore Studios were given international recognition and industry approval by a panel of studio professionals at the Music Producers Guild, who awarded us the coveted prize of ‘Best UK Studio’. More expansion soon followed.
Acclaimed artists such as 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 studio of high distinction, staffed by one of the best producers and mixing engineers in London.
Award Winning Music 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."
