The Animal Farm


1 shout

The Animal Farm is a music company. We produce records, manage artists, run a label and a publishing company.

Recent projects include Rosalita and Ejectorseat for Taste Media, the recently relaunched label that brought Muse to the world; One Night Only for Vertigo; Jack McManus for Polydor; Esteban, Smudge and The Brent Flood for The Animal Farm and a legion of others for cool labels like Fierce Panda and Shifty Disco.

We are based in London near Tower Bridge where we run a state of the art SSL/Neve/Protools studio in an old biscuit factory. The London Eye is visible from our drum room window.

The Animal Farm is run by producer/writers Mat and Ville Leppanen. They started their careers as songwriters on Bob Grace’s Empire Music in 1993. In the late 90s, as members of punk band Snowdogs, signed to Victory Records, they toured the world with artists like At The Drive-In, Blink 182, Alkaline Trio, Less Than Jake and others.

“A plausible mission for artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit” - Kurt Vonnegut
