S2Blue have produced a package for The Most Wanted, the newest syndicated UK chartshow. The package has a very fresh feel, with some very contemporary tracks and some cracking soloists. The nature of The Most Wanted meant that we had to produce a unique sound that would fit in well with the format of the show. We were pleased with the results, as were Fusion and Listen 'Ear, who are jointly producing The Most Wanted.

Thanks to Steve and Simon at s2blue for making the new id package for us it's head and shoulders above the competition and it sounds so fresh, this will help us on our way to another winning year!! We will be using s2blue from now on as our primary production house. THANKS GUYS'

BRIAN HARRISON MD of Sunshine FM Costa Blanca Says:

When I needed audio imaging for the station in the shape of commercial jingles for clients I couldn't believe the standard I service I received in some cases 24 hrs after the client gave me the ideas for their jingle I had back in there hand fully produced. BLEW THEM AWAY. In this age of high-speed living you need to be cutting edge and efficient and s2blue are all of that and whole lot more. Here's to 2004!' We've been really busy recently, here are some photos of our recent sessions

Allan Bowley, Station manager REM FM

When I was putting together our production requirements and looking at the ID package options and pricing that would bring out the best in our sound, I was simply drawn to Steve England and S2blue. Their wealth of experience told me that here would be the perfect partner to produce our station sound ID package and subsequently provide excellent support and original production for our advertising department. We could not have done it without their magnificent commitment to our project. Thanks to you Steve and all the team at S2blue!'
