Spotify At Mateo isn't your average recording studio. Designed to support the Spotify Singles programme and provide facilities for podcasters, it's an epic build that is stuffed to the gills with the best vintage and modern gear.
In our exclusive video feature, Spotify's William Garrett and Chris D'Angelo explain how they put together this no-compromise studio complex — and why, in the DAW age, Studio A has a Rupert Neve Designs 5088 analogue console at its heart and Studio B has an Avid S6 digital console.
