Jay Z flew into Luton by private jet to visit an unusual music studio called Koolworld. He then came back the following night to finish recording after being so impressed with the facilities that the studio, run as a community enterprise, had to offer.
Whether you’re in a band or just solo, if you think you have talent like Jay Z, get yourself into a studio to record a song or even an album.
Recording gives professional musicians a chance to create songs or even albums that may be their key to fame. Often, recordings are put onto discs for an extra fee and then you can play yourself back as you listen to your own cd at home or in the car.
With the privacy of recording studios, musicians who get nervous in front of crowds have a perfect opportunity to let their hair down with less pressure to perform.
The trick for musicians is getting noticed and what better way to showcase your talent than to create your own recording?
If you are lucky enough to get some studio time, make sure you are fully prepared to make the most of your recordings. Have you got your songs ready? Are your instruments sounding their best? Have you warmed up your vocal chords or tuned your guitar? The devil, as they say, is in the detail.
Picking the right studio is one of the most important things to think about; make sure it has the equipment, expertise and capacity to cater for all of your musical needs.
Creating the perfect sound is vital to musicians but don’t get lost in the moment, remember to make your sound short and sweet in order to make the most of your time. It is unlikely that record labels are going to sit for hours to listen to your tape so make it catchy and put your best song first!
With the cost of most recording studios in the UK being high, many studios offer discounted rates and special packages to make it more affordable to those who need it.
Why not look for hotels in Luton to stay overnight in, near to the Koolworld studio? There are also many nice places to eat out in Luton if you want to make the most of it and plenty of shops to visit.
So warm up your vocals or tune your guitar and get recording!
