'Bunker Studios is a cosy working space without being too small. It contains an awesome vocal booth which is a good size with excellent treatments. There are cool lighting options for enhancing mood and personalising a session and quality outboard gear available. It was simple to connect my laptop setup to the in house system, play, and access recording potential quickly.'
