“I had a friend who ran a record label from this unit and he and two producers worked out of their studio here,” Metric tells us about the origins of his studio. “He said I could come in and use the studio whenever there was any downtime.
“Eventually, there was more and more free time and I was using it more and more until it became just me working in here. And I’ve been here for about five years now.
“There was a time when I was looking to move but I actually feel really comfortable here and it feels like I’ve made my best records here. So at the moment there’s no massive reason to move. I really like not having the studio in my home.
“More and more I like to be here in the evening until the early hours of the morning, it’s always when the emails and the phone calls have stopped and you really lose yourself in the studio that you start to get those really good ideas or figure out what needs to be done.”
