S2Blue moves to former Alfasound building

Audio production companies S2Blue and AudioSweets are moving to the old studios of once-popular jingle company Alfasound, in Ashton on Mersey near Manchester.

S2Blue has spent the last 12 years in Leek, Staffordshire but will move in January whilst continuing to create commercial production, jingles and music.

Simon Prentice, Managing Director of S2blue and partner in AudioSweets is the son of Steve England, one half of Alfasound along with Alan Fawkes. In its day, Alfasound produced audio for the vast majority of stations in the UK at one point or another. Many of the loved jingles of all time were created within the walls of St Martin’s.

Simon says he’s looking forward to returning to his roots: “It’s an exciting time for us and great we’re able to expand in an industry where there is so much consolidation. Manchester is increasingly becoming the media capital of the UK and we can’t wait to be back. On a personal note I’m really looking forward to returning to St Martin’s, I spent a lot of my youth there with Steve England , or as I know him; Dad, watching as he created jingles for so many stations. In fact one of our new rooms was Steve’s old office back in the day! It feels like I’m coming home!

“The S2blue family will be coming over with us but we will also be looking for new people to join the team from producers and composers to production co-ordinators, so keep an eye on
