An inspiring place- both inside in the studio and around the island. You forget you’re in Greater London. Goes without saying.. Steve Lyon, extremely experienced, patient and a warm host!
Bosco OlalquiagaGuitarist - Sway
One of the best studios we have worked in as a band! "Fuzz Skyler" have spent sometime recording with Steve, who made us more than comfortable - his manner brought out the best work the band have produced so far! Highly recommended and would definitely work with him again!!
Philip AlleyneManager - Fuzz Skyler
Awesome studio and includes a lovely legend behind the desk 😉 highly recommended!
The Kings Parade
We will be using this place as much as possible from now on. Steve is so experienced (as his discography shows) & relaxed that everything feels effortless even though he is listening like a hawk. He knows the live room like the back of his hand & knows how to get amazing results. We came away feeling like we had known him for ever. Can't wait to get back in there.
The Flight Brigade
Working with Steve Lyon is by far one of the most memorable experiences you will have. Not only is he extremely professional, tech savvy and has a great ear for music/production/arrangment but he is also a fantastic person to be around, filled with a great sense of humor and tons of knowledge regarding anything music! I recommend his studios and working with him highly. If I could select 6 stars I would...

We did a day of recording here with Steve Lyon, the studio's owner - fantastic all round experience! Steve is a veteran producer who knows how to use his equipment. The atmosphere was relaxed yet very professional. 5 stars!
Fuzz SkylerVocalist - Fuzz Skyler
The first studio that comes to my mind in London ! Amazing atmosphere and it's ran by such a classy chap Steve !
Pedro SampaioLead Guitarist
Steve Lyon is a consummate pro and works exceptionally quickly. We had a banging drum sound within a very short time and were able to get tracking promptly. He offered really helpful suggestions to help me play in a way that benefitted the mix, and I look forward to doing more work with him. Great sounding and massive drum room by the way!
Adam StanleyI Am WarFace - Drummer -

The FullersBand
What a great find this little gem was - been using it for rehearsals for about a year now, and it's become like a 2nd home. The facilities are great, the location inspiring, and Steve's nothing short of a legend!

Rick CassmanSongwriter - Guitarist
Panic Button is the best place to record, Steve Lyon is an absolute gent and I'm proud to call him a friend. You want your album to be the best it can possibly be with a passionate team of people behind it this is the place.
Jack Scott DentonOur Propaganda
Steve Lyon is so good to work with. He is professional, friendly, and fun to hang out with. The studio is really lovely with a relaxing and warm vibe, with lots of space, lights, and ambience. I recorded there with the band that I'm in - in Sept 2018, and our album sounds fantastic! Thank you Steve. I recorded there again at the end of 2018 with some other musicians and again, a wonderful experience. I highly recommend booking Panic Button Studios and making some memories.
