Enter our new pioneering music hub in East London!

Welcome to our new home, a state-of-the-art 4.1 million building called The Talent House, at 3 Sugar House Lane in Stratford- and you’re all invited.

We proudly present to you Talent House, a pioneering music and dance hub, designed by award winning architect Katy Marks. Boasting professional facilities, including digital broadcast capability throughout, it will lift the aspirations of all who use the House.

With five music recording studios, a live room, two vocal booths, a large flexible rehearsal space, a Mac and tech lab (with 20 workstations for music education), two dance studios, a flexible space for seminars, a shared area for members (including a canteen and hot-desking space), Talent House is going to be THE cultural hub for emerging talent. To top it all off, the central atrium is our main reception and can be used for informal gigs and dance jams.

At UD, we understand that young people need the resources and space to create and explore their potential. The Talent House provides just that while we continue to empower those trying to make it in the music industry to realise they already belong, equipping those who are breaking through into notoriously competitive creative environments with the tools they need: Excellence, structure, confidence, opportunity and networks.

The Talent House includes a 6 room music recording, production and teaching facility featuring studio-wide Dante Audio Over I/P Connectivity via Focusrite’s Rednet, for management of inter-studio audio playback, headphone mixes and recording management.

Studio (control room 1) features 24 Recording Channels via an Audient 4816 Console + Focusrite ISA828.

Studio (control room) 2 features up to 32 Recording Channels via an Audient ASP 8024 Heritage Console.

Studio 3 is a podcast production room with integrated vocal booth.

A 31sq metre live room, with separate vocal booth, connected to 2 independent control rooms.

Tech lab with 21 Mac workstations for music education.

Large flexible events and rehearsal space (50 capacity seated).

Shared area for members (including a canteen and hotdesking space).

Focusrite’s Rednet system is featured in both control rooms, the live room and the podcast production room, with expandability to the other two production rooms and teaching spaces for facility-wide content production.
