Making Music Timeless


LOUD Mastering was founded in 1995 by John Dent, after leaving The Exchange, Island’s Sound Clinic and Trident. His vision was simple: create a new, world-class studio capable of producing exceptional results at the pinnacle of sonic quality.

Over time, LOUD has evolved into two dedicated mastering rooms and features  a wide range of EQs, compressors, tape machines and limiters that can be utilised to cater for all mastering situations. To this day John’s vision remains intact.

These studios have been built to achieve the highest fidelity listening environments possible. Spacious and with accurate monitoring, everything from the cabling to the clean power supply has been meticulously chosen and tested to create a system accurate enough to make the last critical changes to your audio.

LOUD Mastering remains committed to John’s original vision and under the expertise of engineers Jason Mitchell and Richard Willan, LOUD Mastering will deliver your music to it’s absolute potential.

“Behind every great record is a great mastering engineer” – John Dent



Mastering is the final creative choice in the record making process and Studio 1 offers a no-compromise premium solution for getting a record ready for release. With no limits to technical creativity, all options are explored to find a route through the hardware to get the best possible sound.



With over 20 years working and training with John Dent (who cut LPs including Bob Marley’s “Exodus” and Massive Attack’s “Blue Lines”) LOUD’s Jason Mitchell has the expertise and passion to cut vinyl at a quality hard to achieve anywhere else in the UK.



At LOUD we realise the importance of supporting emerging talent and can cater for self funded artists and independent labels on a lower budget through the option of an unattended session in Studio 2. The studio houses a more limited selection of equipment than the main room, allowing us to keep costs down but still maintaining the exceptionally high standards associated with the studio and our engineers.
