Win a place at the DrumOff.TV recording session!

We’ve secured an opportunity for our winners that’s hard to beat: a day-long recording event at Metropolis Studios, one of the most respected and sought-after recording studios in the world.


Metropolis is renowned as a world-class facility. Some of the most famous artists of all time have recorded at the studios, including Queen, the Stone Roses, the Verve, the Libertines, Lauren Hill, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas and Rihanna.

The session will be produced by Xavier Stephenson. Xavier joined Metropolis in 2006 and has since developed a reputation as a drum recording specialist with the ability to meet wide ranging and demanding client requests.

A custom made drum kit will be provided for the session by Carrera Drums. One of the few truly bespoke custom drum makers, Carrera build all their drums in-house using only the finest quality materials.

The day will be equally divided so each of our winning drummers has time to record a track with the DrumOff.TV house band. The basis of these tracks will be worked out beforehand. Our house band will provide a variety of very simple chord progressions and melodies from which to develop something in the lead up to the session.

The whole day will be filmed by a team of cameras and sound engineers, chronicling the recording session.

The recordings will be mixed at Metropolis, mastered by Noel Summerville, and result in an album that will be released through Rhythm Section Records.
