The Distillery Recording Studio Port Elizabeth South Africa.

We specialise in music recordings & demos, jingles for TV & radio, music composition & arrangement and sound design.

Welcome to The Distillery.

Specialists in original music recordings with a host of professional session musicians to suite your needs. We arrange and produce your songs and also offer mastering facilities.


We also do radio/pabx jingles as well as write original material for corporate identity. If you however just want to lay vocal tracks down over existing music or would like to record your own tracks, we will gladly assist. Whether it’s just guitar or you’re up to the challenge of getting that ‘whole band sound’, it’s our game.


We favour authentic retro recording and all our sound is generally live and unsampled. Your work is safe in our hands as we will assist you in registering your original song at no extra fee. We quote on the project in its entirety which stops the pressure of cramming as much as you can into limited time (per hour fee). This destroys creativity and can make the whole recording process ‘time-frenzied’. If you however prefer an hourly rate, please give us a call or drop us a line on e-mail to arrange accordingly.


Many recording artists have their own cover design but we can assist with photography, video and final production of the visual aspects of your material as well.


Imagine your concept song heard loud and clear on CD. It’s a progression of your passion and the best way to make memories. Writing a song is very personal and we endeavour to keep it that way in that we understand the emotions that go into it. Every completed project is a sculpture of your musical imagination, let us help you bring it to life. You do not need to be a professional artist to record your music or any music for that matter. You need a helpful sound engineer and a great team of musicians or a good multi-instrumentalist to make it a reality. Bear in mind that many PC’s can give you recording ability and there are many wonderful software recording packages available. This does not get you any closer to making a HIT or even an excellently recorded song. Anyone can buy pastels and canvas but it’s in the finished product that the beauty is only evident. Give us a chance to make your musical dream a reality.


Being directed by a team of top session vocalists and performing artists you’re in safe hands to get the best out of your voice when recording. We have a vast selection of top-end instruments to add that extra sheen to your recording. Brands such as; DW drums, Fender, Seagull, Cort & Ibanez guitars, Roland Fantom series and Korg BR analog sound modules, Kurzweil keyboards and top quality compressors and Rode NTK recording microphones, Sennheizer studio headphones for clarity and a minimum of 24 bit analog to digital conversion.


Note: The Distillery is a project studio and is run after hours and on weekends.
