Having first established its presence 15 years ago, Kore continues to uphold the high standards that make London an unrivalled recording destination. Its ethos is built around client feedback, well-maintained and innovative equipment and friendly staff. This is coupled with a drive to foster and encourage new talent, both in front of and behind the control room glass. With a client roster that includes international major label artists, West end theatre productions and a growing audio books community, Kore has continued to evolve its offering. This year will see a programme of technical updates add enhanced acoustic flexibility to the main live room. Recently completed work includes the Cranberries posthumous album ‘Its all Over Now’ and the soundtrack to The Elton John biopic Rocketman, produced by Giles Martin. Kore was honoured to win the Best Studio Award back in 2010 and hopes to receive the judges consideration on the anniversary of that great achievement.
Testimonial from producer Stephen Street (Blur/Kaiser Chiefs/Smiths) I have had the good fortune to work on two albums recently at Kore Studios, one of which was the latest and last release from the Cranberries. Kore provided a magnificent setting for the recording of the backing tracks with it’s flexible room ambience and a most incredible selection of microphones and mic amps! George and Mark were so helpful and attentive to detail that the session flowed like a dream. The API desk is brilliant to record and monitor through and George always has a fantastic selection of processors with which to record the musicians performances. I can’t recommend the place enough and look forward to returning to record there again!
Perfect small studio that has fantastic gear, great atmosphere, cool people and wicked sound
