Recording, Mixing, Mastering

A recording studio is not just a collection of bricks and mortar with a vast array of gadgetry within. At its heart, the studio is the place you come to play when it matters most. It should be a creative environment which inspires you to do your best work.

Lost Boys Studio is just such an environment. Handily placed just an hour from London in rural Bedfordshire, we're set in rolling countryside in a beautiful 16th-Century converted barn. Inside the studio, you're cocooned from the outside world. All that matters is you and how you play.

We understand the creative process and the whole environment is tuned to making sure your work is created in a comforting and inspiring atmosphere. From the lighting to the live rooms, Lost Boys will inspire you in a way no other studio can manage. We look forward to seeing what you come up with!
