About Us

The Snug Recording Co. is a recording studio and rehearsal facility based in Derby, UK.


The studio was founded in 2006 by Robin Newman and Richard Collins after taking over The Hive Recording Studio which they had been managing in years prior to that. They still own, manage and run the studio sessions and you can read any updates, news and opinions they may post on the News / Blog page.

The acquisition of The Hive brought an overhaul of the studio interior and large investment into upgrading the facilities including completely refitted electrics, a custom-designed isolation booth, professional acoustic treatment and an extensive range of microphones, outboard processors, effects and software. Take a look at the Equipment List for full details.

The Snug Recording Co. has since become one of the premiere recording studios in the region and has produced recordings for hundreds of local, national and international artists, films and television productions. Please read more about the recording, rehearsal and mixing & mastering services offered by the studio. Samples are available in the player to the left of the site and on the Film & Video page.
