What they say...

It's always a pleasure making music at Up Top! The environment Dan creates is super relaxed and inspiring and the results are always brilliant.

- Michael Blackwell (Louis Thomlison, Lewis capaldi...)

We've had a great time recording at Up Top over the last few years. So nice to be surrounded by nature and the studio itself is somewhere we really enjoy making music.

- Tommi Bahama (Amber Run)

Up Top is a brilliant space for musical creativity, whether that's for writing, production, mixing or rehearsal. The environment and feel of the place is fantastic.
