Knead To Know: Mad Fox studios🀘

for our Knead To Know feature today, we’ve got the absolutely incredible Mad Fox studio! 🀟 they’ve been super busy lately, producing and recording some incredible music over there – including releases from Minervadaisy MILLICENT Kestrel Palace and Supera Morza😊

Tayte started this studio to provide not only a recording space for bands and artists – but to try and give them a platform for their music to not only be heard but evolve and develop. The work he has been doing on production is absolutely incredible, and the studio has only gone from strength to strength over the last year! They’ve been seeing radio play from not only BBC Music Introducing but also XS Manchester Amazing Radio and getting on some huge Spotify editorial playlists. 🀟

he’s even expanded out to having two main studios now, allowing up and coming producers and engineers to come in and rent the rooms for their own recording projects – absolutely incredible stuff. there’s some fantastic gear over there too, industry-standard equipment but also some preamps used by The Beatles on three of their albums!! ❀

definitely, definitely a serious Knead To Know up here in the North West. we’re absolutely in awe of how Tayte has provided a lovely space for the community and we CAN NOT wait to see what else he has in store in the future! drop them a message or go to their contact at to get in touch with any enquiries! 😊

Jess is a photographer originally from Liverpool, but now based up in Leeds for university. She’s been getting involved in the local music scenes across the North West for a few years now, and has been working a bunch with creatives across Liverpool up until the pandemic – and is looking now to expand further out into Leeds now that things are opening up again 🀟

As restrictions ease, Jess is hoping to make an impact with photography, focusing on gig photography and photoshoots for musicians, but also hoping to expand out into fashion and portrait photography. We’re proper looking forward to what is in store for Jess over the next few months, and her photography is insanely great!! πŸ“Έ
