Young Thugs is just a 10 minute walk from the city walls of York. Created in a unique building, we've put together an inspirational space for making music that combines cutting edge digital recording technology with classic analogue equipment.

Built into a series of rooms across a 150-year-old social club, Young Thugs Studio plays host to album, EP, singles, and live recordings alongside our record label.

In recent years our work has been featured regularly on 6 Music, Radio 1, Radio 2, XFM, BBC Introducing, Spotify (New Music Friday), KEXP (US), KCRW (US) among others.

Check out some of our work below to hear what we’ve been up to recently…
