Whitfield Street Studios



Whitfield Street Studios

This is where Iggy recorded the seminal album Raw Power.

Location: 31-37 Whitfield Street, London, W1T 2SF

Description: Whitfield Street Studios originally opened here in 1965. Its three studios and seven mastering suites housed within its purpose-built complex occupied a significant place in the annals of popular music and also had major continuing importance in the arenas of pop, rock and dance as well as classical, orchestral and film soundtracks.

A glance at the history of the studios reveals a deep and abiding association with artists from Jimi Hendrix to Madonna, from The Who to The Prodigy, from Iggy & The Stooges (recorded Raw Power here) to Charlotte Church.

The Clash recorded their groundbreaking punk debut album The Clash here.

Plus landmark producers and engineers such as William Orbit, Fred Jerkins, Brian Eno and Mike Ross-Trevor all conjured up aural magic from behind the faders.
