ABOUT US

Welcome to BAKERMOON, a high-end recording studio in Berlin, Kreuzberg.

Located in a bright, spacious warehouse with great acoustics, Bakermoon offers an inspiring place to record in the heart of creative Berlin.

The selection of high-end gear is centred around a beautiful 1970s Quad 8 mixing console from California, vintage outboard and lots of great instruments.

Bakermoon Studios is owned by British engineer / producer Ed Bentley. While Ed does most of the productions, it’s also great welcoming external producers and engineers to the studio, whether Berlin-based or international.

Bakermoon is in the heart of Kreuzberg with plenty of great cafes, bars and restaurants right outside the studio.

There’s also a spacious kitchen and communal area to hang out in, great for meals and chilling out between takes.
