Dedicated to providing people with a listening experience akin to rediscovering and hearing music for the first time, Spiritland is a London-based listening space with one of the highest quality sound systems in the world. ‘Once you’ve heard music on this system, it will be the best listening experience you can have,’ Paul Noble, Spiritland’s founder and creative director, tells LS:N Global.

Boiler Room is another brand experimenting with the digital creation of listening spaces. Collaborating with leading virtual reality firm Inception, it wanted to create a new way of immersing people in underground listening culture.
