Getting Some Midnight High

This past weekend Midnight High stepped into the studio to record their first album. We set up in the large live room, taking advantage of the extra space & getting some huge drums recorded along the way.  All three members seemed to have their own personal style of music that couldn’t have been placed together more perfectly, […]

Damian Pearce at Metrosonic Recording Studio NYC

Listening to Damian Pearce Record His New Tracks

Having one of the sickest jobs ever (working at Metrosonic) can sometimes have it’s perks. Damien Pearce was recording his new album in our Williamsburg studio and much to my delight, the music is floating through the air from the closed recording studio doors and is making its way to the back office.  Talented producer […]

On the Goodfoot with Blak & Nature

Check this mix & let me know what you think.  I have a few versions.  I’ll edit together a new one & post it soon. Maybe music changed or  I’m getting older, but there are very few hip hop songs that are not only approved for all ages, but actually good too. Enter “Goodfoot”. This […]

Reggie Watts

Reggie Watts Records At MetroSonic

The hilarious, conspicuous, and always the life of the party Reggie Watts graced MetroSonic Studio with the role of recording a song that can undoubtedly be deemed one of a kind. Before moving forward, make note of this one fact: he is a one man band with several members, who happen to look alike and bare identical […]
