The Studio

Moon Lab Studios is a recording studio in Brooklyn, New York with a passion for music production.  We built the studio from the ground up: for musicians, by musicians, while listening to music.

Located just 15 minutes from Union Square in the exciting Greenpoint neighborhood, we put the comfort of our clients at the top of our list.  We realize that making a great recording isn't just about expensive microphones and pushing buttons--it's an experience.

Each piece of equipment has been carefully selected with an ear for the classic, analog recordings of yesterday.  From our custom-built Ludwig drum kit to our Abbey Road mic preamps, the studio's large collection of instruments and audio gear combines vintage sounds with the efficient workflow of digital recording.

If you're looking for a space with a great vibe, a great sound, and people that care about your music, you've found the right place.

I really felt comfortable coming into the studio. I would definitely recommend this place to others, and will be back in the future.
