In the Spring of 2011, I began my official visits to nearly three dozen Brooklyn Recording Studios as my borough’s correspondent for SonicScoop.
Below, you can find an archive of all of the articles I’ve completed as part of this studio tour series so far.
Each of the rooms listed here fills an important niche in its neighborhood, and all of them have been vetted as thoroughly great places to make music. I’ve even worked at many of them myself. Check them out, and tell ’em we sent you.

There are a few Brooklyn mainstays that are very deserving of their own slot, but haven’t yet been included in this series because they’ve recently appeared in other regular features. Such rooms include Studio G, Fluxivity, Mission Sound Recording, Future Shock Studio and Vanity Sound.
As for my own work, I’m a natural-born wanderer. I like to choose a new home base from time to time, and these days, I primarily work out of Strange Weather Recording Studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Other regular favorites that are affordable to indie musicians include The Bunker in Williamsburg, Let ‘Em In Music in Park Slope, and The Buddy Project in Astoria Queens.
