STFD started out as an initiative taking music into the homes of local music fans with the intention of reigniting a passion for local music as well as a live music culture. Over the years we have rapidly progressed to being the trusted go-to guys for all your live entertainment, music management, studio and event needs.
Atomic Studios is a world class recording facility in Woodstock, Cape Town offering services ranging from audio and post-production work to mixing and mastering and everything else audio related. The studio offers a live room and vocal booth, each with dedicated control rooms. The space is designed to be modular so that each room can be operated independently or with any other room,allowing a session to take place across all four rooms.
Atomic Studios also shares work space with Sit the Folk Down, STFD Records and M-Pire Music, a fully integrated and interactive retail space that sells international and local vinyl, CD's and merchandise; and Popsicle TV, a video content creation company, making the space a hub of creativity within the local music landscape.
