About RYP Recordings
Founded in 2015 by Michael Smith and Matt Thomas, RYP Recordings was designed as a production house with the intention of shaking up the music industry’s preconceptions of what it is to make a record, and how it should sound. With a love for both classic and modern records, we always create a unique sound for every artist we have in the studio. We work closely with the artist so that we can achieve the sound that they want, whilst giving them a sonic identity. It’s this philosophy that has lead to our artists getting radio play on Radio 1, Radio 2, 6 Music, BBC London and introducing, XFM and featuring on some of Spotify’s most followed playlists such as the USA Viral 50 playlist.
We also realise that making a record is just as much an experience as it is about the music. That’s why we have a lounge area with PS4, Netflix, Sky, free wifi, books, and a kitchenette for preparing food, tea and coffee, for when our artists want to relax between recording.
RYP has worked with many great artists and musicians over the years such as, The Saints, Wolf Alice, Weird Milk, Judy Dyble, Fairport Convention, Mel Gaynor (Simple Minds), the Spencer Davis backing band, Anteros, The Bible Code Sundays, Elvis Costello, Bess Atwell, and Honey Lung. You can listen below to examples of a few projects that we have worked on over the years.
