Studio Improvements & New Production Space


Some more news about the improvements made to the studio!

Rehearsal Room 1 has now received additional acoustic treatments with the installation of baffles to cover the ceiling void. We plan to do the same in room 2 shortly.

Both rooms now have double doors to keep in the sound. The external windows will also be fixed very soon.

We have improved our storage capacity with a range of additional shelving throughout the premises.

Most excitingly of all, we have turned one of the storage rooms into a plush new production space. Facilities include a solid desk and plush producers chair, Adam A5 active monitor speakers, hdmi monitor, saffire pro 14 soundcard, a mackie desk, internet access and comfortable bench seating for collaborative working. We expect there to be some downtime when the space could be hired by external producers, so if you want to mix your tunes at high volume at all hours and you’re sick of complaints from your neighbours, other half or flatmates, give us a shout! Hire by the hour @£6, or pre-pay for a chunk of time for a heftily discounted rate. Don’t hang about though, we are already getting enquiries and the room calendar is filling up quickly!

About The Dissident Sound Industry


The Dissident Sound Industry is a studio cooperative based in Tottenham, Haringey offering recording, rehearsal facilities and a range of other music-related services. We pride ourselves on providing the best possible quality at extremely competitive prices. Our opening times depend on whether we have clients in at a particular time but studio time can usually be reserved from midday to midnight, seven days a week (earlier or later times may be possible by arrangement). While we are normally able to cover any request for time slots, it may occasionally be impossible for us to provide cover during weekdays before 6pm – however usually these will be OK, so please contact us to ask!

Dissident: We approach things in a different way; creativity over profit, our studio is staffed by volunteers and operated by it’s members. Sound: what we make. Industry: what we are.

We began as a production company in 2002, but since the summer of 2011 we have established ourselves as a studio in it’s own premises, continuously recording, expanding and supporting artists, both locally and beyond.

We now operate two large live/rehearsal rooms and a fully equipt control room with vocal booth. Our collection of analog and digital outboard is constantly growing, adding to and refining that DSI sound.

New MP3 up! The Drej – “Head Rattle”


1355340333_Drej_sign_pose

This crushing track has just been sent to us by the band who are busy mastering their debut album now. Drums and vocals were tracked at DSI, the rest was produced by the band themselves! All power to the Drej!

I’m having trouble embedding soundcloud into my posts in these fledgling stages, but check out the player in the websites sidebar. There it is!
