Three Six Zero buys London’s SARM studios from producer Trevor Horn

Global artist management company Three Six Zero has acquired the iconic SARM Music Village in London.

The recording facilitylocated in Notting Hill, West London, houses six studios (commonly referred to as ‘SARM Studios’) and a suite of purpose-built offices.

It was previously owned by Grammy-winning producer Trevor Horn.

SARM Music Village has hosted studio sessions from superstar artists including Paul McCartney, Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Madonna, One Direction, Stormzy, Lana Del Rey, Paolo Nutini, Charli XCX, Mark Ronson and Florence & The Machine.

According to a SEO by Winkworth estate agents in London, the owners of SARM Music Village were seeking offers in excess of £4.5 million (US$5.3 million) for the complex.

This listing confirms that the SARM complex spans 5,800 square feet.

Once the purchase is finalized, Three Six Zero says the complex will now undergo a refurbishment before becoming a “fundamental part” of the company’s global ecosystem.

Three Six Zero told MBW that the purchase represents an important decision by the company to create a central hub in London, “strengthening [our] British foundations and provide a valuable springboard to Europe”.

The facilities will be available to all Three Six Zero customers and partners while the SARM Studios complex will also serve as the new base for Three Six Zero Recordings.

As a management company, Three Six Zero represents talents such as Calvin Harris, WILLOW, Majid Jordan, Bloodpop, The Streets and Jabari Banks.

Three Six Zero also has offices in Miami and global headquarters in Los Angeles.

“SARM Studios has long been an integral part of the London music landscape, and we are delighted to be able to make them part of the growing Three Six Zero community.”
