The 2017 Music Producers Guild Awards saw a big win for RAK Studios in London, which was named Studio of the Year. The MPG Awards honor outstanding achievements in UK music production, and RAK Studios has the distinction of being dubbed Studio of the Year twice.
It isn't hard to see why RAK continues to rack up the awards. The studio has an impressive history, as it was founded in 1976 by legendary Producer Mickie Most, and has been the recording site for many industry greats, including Paul McCartney, Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Elton John, and many others.
The studio is beloved by artists for its creative atmosphere and impressive gear, including two API consoles installed in 1976, which marked RAK as the first studio in the UK with API consoles. Forty years later, those consoles are still running faithfully in Studios 1 and 2 at RAK.
API is proud to play a part is RAK Studios' history, and would like to say congratulations to everyone at RAK on this well-deserved win!
