|Chicky's vision was to make the studio as cozy as possible; a sound-proof, serene place where artists could slip into the ‘zone’ without distractions. There, ideas can come to life, so it is critical for him that clients feel both comfortable and inspired at the same time.
Sublime Studios is in a two-storey townhouse along the oldest crescent in Islington, shaded with trees and isolated from the main road. All the rooms have great acoustics. The control room and main live room are on the lower ground floor, so they have a cocoon feel to them, hermetically sealed from the outside world. Lighting is also very important. It can make or break a creative mood, so we’ve gone all-out with special lights to make the place conducive to feeling relaxed and chilled.
With the lovely garden out back, you can take a breather and get some fresh air during long, intense sessions. Upstairs is an eat-in kitchen with a fully stocked bar and lounge and plenty of room to relax, watch some television, or work on ideas on our 1904 Lichtnestein piano.
Islington, in general, is a cool place to be — and Sublime is the coolest place in Islington.
