#throwbackthursday (that's still a thing right?) to the amazing/ridiculous @transgressivehq Studio Party we did in Summer 2015 with @blaenavon and @gengahr - 40 competition winners, a record high temperatures in Studio A and a commemorative cassette to immortalise the occasion!
What a fantastic year making music with wonderful musicians and composers from all around the world. To each and every one of our clients, from Japan to the USA to Norway to... Brighton a Happy New year to one and all! 🥂#happynewyear2017
