Chart-topping, platinum selling British DJ, artist, producer and four times BRIT nominee, 29 year old DJ Jonas Blue, aka Guy Robin, has put PMC’s MB3 XBD-A monitors into the heart of his new recording studio.

With five billion streams and 30 million singles sales to his credit, it is hard to believe that this time last year the songwriter, producer and DJ was still making music in his dad’s garage. But one year on that situation has completely changed because Robin is now creating his chart-topping global hits in his ‘dream studio’, a brand new recording and mixing facility featuring, at its heart, a pair of PMC MB3 XBD-A monitors.

“I always wanted to build a dream studio and I knew that when I had the opportunity, I wanted PMC monitoring,” Robin says. “I used to go to a studio owned by a mix engineer friend of mine and he used PMC religiously. I always loved the warm, pleasing sound that came out of those monitors and I knew that one day I wanted PMC to be a part of my set up.” Built onto his home in Essex, Robin’s new studio consists of a control room, live room, synth/writing room and a reception/chill out area. What makes this studio unusual is that the builder, Studio Creations, has incorporated a credenza in the middle of the control room, which is actually a DJ booth on attenuating arms. “With this set up I can use the Crestron system in the studio to go into ‘club mode’,” Robin explains. “This means that during any part of the process of music making I can export what I am working on, load it onto the decks and test the song out as part of a DJ set. It also allows me to turn the control room and live room into a nightclub, which is highly different and like nothing I’ve seen before in a studio.” Guy Robin’s studio is for his own use only, which means all the equipment choices have been made with his preferences in mind. This includes the PMC MB3 XBD-A monitors, which were not only chosen “for their transparency and clarity”, but also because they fitted perfectly within Studio Creation’s specifications for the control room.  “Justin’s team said they would be perfect for my room and they really are,” Robin says. “I absolutely love them and finished my debut album Blue on them. The sound they deliver is quite incredible.”
