About Ed Bentley :

Growing up in London and Rio de Janeiro, Ed opened Bakermoon Studios in 2007 as creative space to produce friends’s early demos.

2012 saw a move over to Berlin where he has spent the last 7 years and grew Bakermoon into a high-end commercial recording facility that became the go to place for many in the Berlin music community. 

In various capacities, Ed has worked with a wide array of artists and genres over the years, from the BAFTA winning, GRAMMY nominated soundtrack The Theory of Everything, with late composer Johann Johannsson, to disco hipsters PARCELS, to the pioneering works of Holly Hendon’s PROTO (BBC6 Mary Anne Hobbs’ album of 2019), to the many colourful corners of Berlin’s music scene, including engineering the Top 10 album ‘Wonderer’ by MOGLI. 

Ed has developed a reputation for capturing live organic performances in the studio, bringing a modern approach to old school 24 track recording, and keeping things simple.
