Rooftop was designed by producer/engineer Alex 'Cores' Hayes, who owns and operates the studio.
A long time collaborator of fellow East Londoner Professor Green, Cores kick-started his career when he produced and featured on Green's underground hit "Upper Clapton Dance". He eventually went on to become the executive producer of Green's three albums "Alive Till I'm Dead", "At Your Inconvenience" and "Growing Up In Public"; earning him numerous writing, production and mix credits. He also was the MD of the band, with whom he toured extensively.
Cores' varied career has seen him work with Lily Allen, Emeli Sandé, Example, Labrinth, Pixie Lott, Paloma Faith, Maverick Sabre, Mr Probz and many more both established and developing artists across many genres.
Cores' experience on both sides of the glass as well as on the road has given him a unique insight in to the production process, from conception to master and beyond. Location, equipment choices, workflow and the general vibe of the studio are all a result of years of real-world music making at the highest level and a well-developed understanding of the mind of an artist.
