All our music is made by our own production team of Mat Leppanen, Jamie Dodd and David Leighton who work as a team in our own recording studios. Built inside a converted 19th century factory minutes from the South Bank of the River Thames, our two studios are designed around classic Neve, SSL and state of the art Pro Tools. With three live areas, lots of natural light and an extensive equipment list The Animal Farm is a creative haven maxed out on the latest gizmos available.
In addition to having produced all the artists on our current roster, our producers’ credentials include the artists on this incomplete yet informative list of projects present and past:
Everything Everything (Geffen) Orange Goblin (Candlelight) Ejectorseat (Taste Media) Four Star Mary (Spitfire) Jack McManus (Polydor) Nik Kershaw (Universal) Nine Below Zero (A&M) One Night Only (Mercury) Quad Riot (Fierce Panda) Rosalita (Taste Media) Shakin’ Stevens (SonyBMG) Shortwave Fade (Shifty Disco) Ideals (Intruder) Woman E (Aztec) Sinead Quinn (Mercury) Tara Blaise (Spokes/Warner) Taz (DefJam/Universal) The Dumdums (Wildcard) The Levellers (Eagle) and many many more…
The Animal Farm is part of a community of music, media and entertainment businesses based at The Biscuit Factory, situated a 5 min walk from Bermondsey tube station (Zone 2, one stop south from London Bridge on Jubilee Line). The Complex has plenty of free parking and 24/7 security. Other services within the Complex include The Bridge, a restaurant offering hot and cold food daily, and Music Bank, an equipment hire company with rehearsal rooms and a shop for consumables like strings, skins etc.
Since Music Bank is used by the biggest names in the music business, one of the perks of working at the ‘Farm is that you’re guaranteed to run into famous people! And if that’s not enough, you can see the London Eye from our windows.
Here are some shots of the place.
