Learn from professionals.

Successful professionals don’t continue to work from their bedrooms with a set of monitors squeezed into a corner. They evolve and build studios dedicated to their profession and we’ve done just that! Altar studios is the words first and only fully fledged commercial studio for electronic dance musicians. Based in a converted church in South Yorkshire, it not only boasts a boutique creative environment for both artists and students but also has some of the most lauded hardware available including Manley, Neve, SSL, TubeTech, SPL, API and more.

Our ghost production work has earned millions of views on youtube and we regularly record, engineer and master music for a variety of electronic dance music artists and labels including Sony BMG, Warner and Polydor.

We’re professionals in this field. Our chief producer, Rick Snoman has been involved in the electronic music industry for 30+ years. He has remixed for some of the biggest names in the industry and has produced music under various monikers including Phiadra and Aeon Soul. His work has accredited him as an iTunes certified mastering engineer, an EMTAS certified tutor and he holds a doctorate in Music Technology and Production..

His book, the Dance Music Manual, has won awards, critical acclaim and accolade across the electronic music industry and is recognised as the industry standard textbook that is required or recommend reading at colleges and universities that teach EDM. He also regularly teaches university tutors on production techniques.

A member of the Audio Engineering Society education committee, he has held talks on EDM at their conventions, alongside co-chairing the Electronic Dance Music Track for the 147th New York Convention in 2019, and was keynote speaker at NAMM 2020 on electronic music production.
