Far Heath Studios is set in the beautiful countryside of rural Northamptonshire, and has been home to artists ranging from The Specials and Toyah to The Fall and The Prodigy. It’s most recent visitors were the MGL production team, when we convened at the secluded location to create a film that captures the essence of what Far Heath is all about.
Despite the fact that Far Heath has been producing hit recordings for more than 24 years, it is still one of the industry’s best kept secrets. It has the perfect mix of state of the art facilities, experienced engineers and producers as well as idyllic surroundings.
The film has fascinating interviews with Far Heath owner and engineer, Angus Wallace and resident producer, Mike Bennett. Mike regaled us with numerous tales from his many years in the industry, both as a producer and as a member of The Fall. Although there was lots of his material we couldn’t include in this film, we would love the opportunity to work with Mike again in the future – his energy and enthusiasm are infectious.
Far Heath Studios is a terrific place and we really hope our film gives just a flavour of what you can expect if you visit in the future.
Take a look at the film and let us know what you think.
