In the heart of Melbourne down a little alley way is an old warehouse-turned-townhouse. And in that town house, through the garage is a very special secret…. which isn’t much of a secret anymore. With no parallel walls in sight and fixed with timber finishings lies Bed Rec Studio. Bedroom to the founder of SEMPLESIZE and workstation to 8 Bit Love front-man/professional Audio Engineer, Vito Lucarelli. The pair teamed up to launch the new recording studio. A place where musicians can come and record in the large space, yet still feel at home.
Bed Rec Studio is equipped with professional recording equipment, has a cool chill zone, vocal booth, large band room and control room as well as a queen size bed. Although the studio has only been open for just over two months it has already had some pretty amazing projects come out of it; such as 8 Bit Love‘s new EP Slummer days, which was all recorded in the studio, as well as mastering of Kakariko’s new single Aeroplane and mixing The Shabbab‘s debut self-titled EP.
To show people what the space looks like and what it’s about the guys brought in Devin De Araujo - who has worked on a number of video clips for bands - to help them come up with a video that would portray what the studio is all about; business and pleasure. They threw a party, got Sailor Jerry to sponsor it, invited a bunch of their mates, had Babaganouj and 8 Bit Love play some tunes and filmed the whole thing. There were feathers, there was booze, there was tunes and there were babes.
To celebrate we’re launching our brand new YouTube channel with the first episode premiering Bed Rec Studio. Check it out and check out the studio’s Facebook page to keep up to date.
