Speaking about the event Mark said: ‘The awards was one of great success and encouragement to all new engineers, and showed just how much respect and support the UK recording producers and engineers have from the rest of the music sectors. It is a very challenging role and one which requires constant excellence. The awards celebrate all that is best in the British recording industry.’

Kensington and Chelsea College has an exclusive partnership with DEEP, who deliver a number of the college’s music courses at their West London recording facility.

The college, in conjunction with DEEP, was the first FE college in the UK able to offer JAMES (Joint Audio Media Education Services) industry approved and accredited FE courses. The rare and widely respected accreditation gives students a unique edge in the highly competitive music industry.
