Westchester Recording Studio & Rehearsal Space
Dark City Studios, a full-service recording studio in Westchester, NY, is not your average recording facility by any means. Run and operated by Andy Mass of Mass Destruction Entertainment, the Yonkers-based recording studio fosters a unique atmosphere – a space where musicians can expand their minds while fine-tuning their artistic practice.
Our goal is to ensure that our clients are able to reach their full artistic potential, not only by providing access to state-of-the-art recording equipment and instruments, but by making musicians feel right at home without having to worry about the constraints of a typical recording studio.
Whether you are a solo-artist looking to record vocals, or a full band looking to cut an entire record, we do it all. In addition to top-notch recording equipment and an unbeatable vibe, Dark City Studios offers a full menu of recording services such as engineering, mixing, mastering and video packages. We have worked with amateur and professional musicians alike in a range of genres from rock bands and hip hop artists to latin jazz musicians. Because catering to our clients is our top priority, we don’t have set hours of operations. Get in touch and we are happy to work with your schedule.
Our recording studio is a large 1,500 square foot live room fully sound-treated for impeccable acoustics. Our recording studio is also available for use as a rehearsal space. Get in touch to learn more or book a session.
