In 2008 I was gifted my first Microphone, the Samson CO1u condensor. Each year I’d save up and upgrade my equipment which led to me setting up a recording studio in the basement of house in east london.
I started charging people around the area (£4 per person haha) to come in and drop on a track. As so many people used to come through it kept me happy as it would pay for the chicken and chips, and the junk food I’d buy after school as a 14/15 year old.
This kept on running for around 3 years until I decided to shut it all down for silly reasons I wont go in to 😉
I miss those days.
