Youth’s Space Mountain Studios
the last part of the Chill-Out Music Experience Workshop you will stay in the luxurious Space Mountain Studios: the ultimate creative retreat that contributes to a unique inspiring experience and completes your versatile chill-out odyssey
This residential recording studio is something truly special. Based in Andalusia, Southern Spain, it is owned by legendary producer Youth (Killing Joke, The Orb, The Verve, Paul McCartney). This is the ultimate 21st century creative retreat and the perfect place to inspire your music.
Space Mountain Studios – a beautiful and secluded building located on a large estate just outside the mountain village of Albuñuelas, about 50 km from the coast in the beautiful Lecrin Vally. It is set within 40 acres of ancient olive groves and is surrounded by a vast National Park with beautiful forests and breathtaking views of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Here, you can enjoy 300 days of Andalusian sunshine and you can ski until April.
With mesmerising views of the Sierra Nevada National Park, Space Mountain’s accommodation is private, secluded and luxurious. It features floor to ceiling windows throughout – the entire building absorbs the warm Andalusian sun that shines through most of the year. Other features to Space Mountain, both inside and out, contribute to a hugely inspiring experience for guests to savour, such as the outdoor swimming pool, newly-built sauna and Artist’s studio.

the perfect place to enjoy and inspire your music
The recording studio at Space Mountain Studios was built by Olympic Studios’ Terry Ottley and inspired by the legendary Sam Toyoshima designed Olympic Studio 2, with other influences taken from a number of Youth’s favourite rooms that he has worked in over a 30 year career in music.
The studio is situated beneath the lounge, past the Hobbit wing and other bedrooms. On entering you are greeted by the gloriously lit live room with full length windows that can be fully opened in warm weather, depending on what is being recorded.
To the left of the live room are three isolation booths providing plenty of options for separation. The booths are packed full of backline – the guitars, bass guitars, amps and effects are all available to clients – and with their large glass doors are fully visible from the main recording room.
The control room is a compact but fantastic-sounding space. The windows on the left side of the room allow plenty of daylight in, and also provide spectacular views of Space Mountain’s surroundings. Working through the day you can witness the ever changing environment of this mystical location.
With eight bedrooms and a two bedroom guest house there are plenty of sleeping areas for guests, and the large, open plan living areas enhance the feeling of light and space. The Space Mountains bedrooms come in all shapes and sizes and are spread across the villa and guesthouse. Each are beautifully furnished and serve as comforting places to wind down at the end of the day. All of the rooms are well-lit and have breathtaking views of the mountains and valleys.
In a separate guesthouse just a stone’s throw from the villa are two more en suite double bedrooms, which share a small living room and kitchen.
The wonderful studio is greatly influenced by a number of Youth’s other favourite rooms from around the world. A compact, day-lit control room, large day-lit recording area and three isolation booths filled with backline make up the studio which sits on the lower ground floor of a modern Moorish-style villa.
