Ministers showed their support for businesses in Chiswick with a visit to Europe's fastest-growing recording studio Metropolis and Fuller's brewery.
The secretary of state for culture, Sajid Javid, along with Conservative parliamentary candidate for Brentford & Isleworth Mary Macleod, were given a tour of Metropolis, which included seeing the grand piano of the late Freddie Mercury of Feltham.
Tucked away off Chiswick High Road, the recording studio kept it in his honour after his death while making his last album there.
During the tour, on Bank Holiday Monday (May 4), the politicians also heard the studios work and their plans for the future to help keep Britain at the forefront of the music industry.
With artists like Adele, Mick Jagger and Rihanna using the studio to record, almost 50% of the Top 40 is recorded, mixed or creatively mastered in their studios.
Mr Javid said: “Metropolis is leading the way in the recording industry, adapting to change and evolving over time but keeping their focus on recording of the highest quality – it’s a great example of why Britain is truly a global leader in this field. They are also putting a lot back into the industry, helping to train young people to become the song writers, recording artists, producers and engineers of the future through their work with the Association of Contemporary Music.
“Metropolis is about to open the most technologically advanced studio in the world, in Qatar, this week and I wish them all the best for the future.”
Ms Macleod added: "It’s very inspiring to hear that artists like Adele, Mick Jagger, U2, Kylie and Rihanna have all come to these studios in Chiswick to record.
"They [Metropolis] are part of a rich vein of talent we have in the West London Creative Industries Hub.
“Through their Academy, Metropolis are also helping to secure Britain’s place as a global leader in this industry, by developing the next generation and helping them to become the next big recording artist or sound engineer – they couldn’t get a better place to train!”
Mr Javid also opened the new wine store next door, Villa di Geggiano.
These visits followed the secretary of state for environment, food and rural affairs, Liz Truss' tour of Griffin Brewery, home to Fuller's, on May 1.
Ms Macleod and Ms Truss met with Richard Fuller, corporate affairs director for Fuller's, to discover Chiswick's position in global exports and find out more about the 200-year-old brewery.
Ms Truss said: "Fuller’s is an excellent example of what local businesses in London have been able to achieve with the right help from Government. They are now exporting to over 60 countries, contributing to the 1 million pints that Britain exports a year.”
Ms Macleod added more needed to be done to support local businesses and help them grow and the government's announcements to treble funding for start-up loans and for a full review of business rates was moving in the right direction.
