Sound Entity Studio

Founded by Ron Wells (PKA Jack Smooth) in 1989, Sound Entity Studio was used by many household names in the underground dance music scene. The studio is mainly known for pioneering the 'Jungle Techno' and 'Intelligent Drum & Bass' genres.
The final setup below was eventually disbanded in 1997.
