mob recording | ENG

An environment in which artists feel at home.

Location

Who wants to sit in the dark? MOB inspires with daylight. It’s beautiful here. And quietly, you can work undisturbed – nevertheless, a few steps and you are in Hamburg’s most popular quarter.

Idea

Songwriting in one room, programming beats in another, recording tracks in the third – or classical control / recording room: Many scenarios are possible. Good acoustics, top equipment ? Of course, we attach particular importance to the fact that musicians and producers can seamlessly integrate their analog treasures and other equipment – contemporary work, everyone can produce here in his own way.

History

Already in the 90s as a recording studio a firm size in the Hamburg Independent scene (the Ärzte, Abwärts, Sisters of Mercy). 2008 modernized by Kim Kiesling and Martin Fekl-Look. Besides pop productions (Tim Bendzko, Lena Meyer-Landruth, Blumfeld, Dick Brave, Ben Becker, Revolverheld), music for film and TV. Since 2018 again as MOB at the start – nice!

mob recording | DE

Eine Umgebung in der sich Künstler zuhause fühlen.

Location

Wer sitzt schon gern im Dunkeln?
mob inspiriert auf 130 qm – mit viel Tageslicht. Es ist schön hier. Und ruhig.
Du kannst ungestört arbeiten –  ein paar Schritte und du bist trotzdem in Hamburgs angesagtestem Viertel.
Mit den anderen Musiproduktionen hier im Haus, z.B. rkrdr lab, arbeiten wir eng und freundschaftlich zusammen. Dadurch  können wir auf jede Menge zusätzliches Equipment, Instrumente und natürlich auch Know-how zurückgreifen.

Idee

In einem Raum Songwriting, im anderen Beats programmieren, im dritten Tracks aufnehmen – oder klassisch Regie / Recordingroom: Viele Szenarien sind möglich. Gute Akustik, Top Equipment ? Na klar! Besonderen Wert legen wir aber darauf, dass Musiker und Produzenten sich pudelwohl fühlen. Und ihre analogen Schätzchen und sonstiges Equipment nahtlos integrieren können – zeitgemäßes Arbeiten eben.

Historie

Das mob Tonstudio in Hamburg hat mit innovativen Produktionen Musikgeschichte geschrieben. Schon in den 90ern war es eine feste Größe in der Hamburger Independent Szene (die Ärzte, Abwärts, Sisters of Mercy).  

Wir haben 2008 Blank Fontanas Etablissement übernommen, modernisiert und lassen diesen Geist fortleben.

Neben Pop Produktionen (Tim Bendzko, Lena Meyer-Landruth, Blumfeld, Dick Brave, Ben Becker, Revolverheld), machen wir Musik für Film und TV. Seit 2018  wieder unter dem Namen mob am Start – nice!
