Void Acoustics completes double London nightclub install

Brand new systems from Void Acoustics are now being used at two of London’s hottest nightclub spots.

The first is Printworks (pictured, above) a huge 6,000-capacity music and culture space located near Canada Water which has returned for its second season.

Meanwhile, Studio 338 has reopened its doors since just over a year when it closed its doors after being badly damaged by fire. Now, after major restoration, the venue has returned with a new Void Acoustics sound system and a rubberised dance floor. The terrace space has been rebuilt "almost entirely from airport-grade glass and steel columns”.

At Printworks, the interior has deliberately been left as raw as possible, staying true to its original, industrial roots as home to Western Europe’s largest printing facility. With six separate event spaces, all types of entertainment and cultural activities are hosted here, including art shows, classical concerts, dining events and gigs.

Room 2, also known as ‘Charge Bay’, has a four-point Air Motion system, together with Stasys 4 fills and 218 low frequency enclosures. Monitor duties are covered by Air Streams and Stasys 218s that were installed by Twisted Audio. Void sound systems can also be found in many of the bars throughout the venue, including the Artist Bar.

This season’s gigs boast major acts such as Richie Hawtin, The Chemical Brothers, Maceo Plex, Andy C, Claptone and many more.

For the refurbishment of Studio 338, rather than just recreating the same the club, Dan Perrin and the rest of the team opted to make some substantial improvements for the audience and the venue’s neighbours by installing a sealed glass ceiling to drastically reduce the amount of sound escaping from the club, and future-proof the venue against further residential developments in and around Studio 338.

For Studio 338’s music and events director, Dan Perrin, Void was the sound system of choice for this latest venture: "Since the birth of Studio 338 we have used Void Acoustics to power sound across the entire venue and at all events. We already had a strong feeling we would use Void, having experienced their systems at places like DC10 but we still put them through an ‘audition’ process against all the major players.

“Unsurprisingly, Void Acoustics won out; we find Void systems have a uniquely warm and round feeling that suits us more than the output found in their peers,” said Perrin. “It’s a bonus that the speakers look so distinctive and eye-catching too!"
