Best Recording Studio

Ultramagnetic Studios

Charles Austin, co-owner of Ultramagnetic Studios AKA the Mullet, knows why his business wins time and again in this poll—he stays hella busy. The producer worked on almost 40 projects last year, recording material for a list of Halifax acts that reads like a guide to local musicians to watch, including Buck 65, Two Hours Traffic, The Maynards and Special Noise. “There are other studios in town that I go to do stuff that I can’t do in the Mullet, as size and odour are a serious consideration,” Austin says. “But I feel like if you work pretty hard people tend to acknowledge that. It’s affordable, we tend to have a lot of fun, and I think I know when to make a suggestion and when to stay the hell out of it.”
