  • The great thing about working with the team at Mother City Records is that they make the process both seamless and enjoyable. From brief to execution, nothing was too big an ask. The final product blew client away and had a phenomenal impact on the market beyond what we had even foreseen.

  •  Mother City Records strikes the perfect balance, creating a recording atmosphere of focused professionalism as well as a relaxed and welcoming environment. Craig’s incredible attention to every detail is clear as he puts 100% of his energy into every project. I highly recommend Mother City Records – it’s a great place to record with amazing people!

  •  I have produced several productions with MCR over the years, and have never once been let down on any aspect. They have the inherent skill of being musicians, combined with the latest technical aspects of sound engineering available. There are not many studios in South Africa that have both of these qualities. MCR have an acute dedication to each project, and an intricate understanding of the South Africa television market whether it be genre, cultural, or budgetary.’
