Level Up Level Up is a Music Production and Photography studio that specializes in artist development for local acts in New York City. Level Up Studio was created back in 2013 by founders Tony Ortiz and David Alexander.

They have been in bands together for years and have been established musician in the local New York scene. Their initial plan was to create a recording studio and environment where they can be the most creative and productive. After years of experience in creating successful bands of their own, they decided to open up their studio to the public and use their talent and know how to help other bands

The announcements just keep rolling in. Our very own veterans of Level Up Viserion have finished their album. They are some of the hardest working guys in the industry. Coming to the studio several times a week to get their album "Natural Selection" done. These guys are considered family in our studio. They put out a single to their album with a guest vocal from none other than Trevor Strand from Black Dahlia Murder. Since the release of their single, the internet is lighting up and people are starting to listen. If you haven't heard it go to their page and give them a like and be sure to follow them on all platforms. To the boys in Viserion I say thank you for coming to our studio to do your album, it was an awesome experience. Hope you have continued success when the full length album drops because you and your music deserve it 🤘🏽👏🏾👏🏾

We haven't posted in a while but that just cause we were busy kicking ass here at Level Up. We are so incredibly excited to announce the completion of Final Siege new album. If you have not been to the listening party at Duffs in Brooklyn check out their single "Democide" on their Spotify page. These guys slowed down when the pandemic hit but they never gave up on completing the album and came in with a new found fire. They recently played a sold out monster of a show in Brooklyn recently and these boys are on a train bound for success. We are so greatful to work with them in recording and producing the album. We wish them success on the album when it releases. Give them a like for more announcements. Stay Heavy 🤘🏽

The boys in Final Siege are putting the finishing touches on their album. Can't tell you how proud I am at how much these guys have leveled up their game since coming to studio. They went from wanting to record a few songs to full on working the recording equipment and getting a handle on their music. The hard work shows. The album is explosive. Give them a follow for updates on album release date. #finalsiege #levelup #levelupnyc #heavymetal #metal #cubase #recordingstudio

Our page has been quite for a while. That is only because 2018 has been so incredibly busy for level up. However, that's not the best part. The best part has been working with such incredibly talented and thoughtful musicians here in the new York and new Jersey area. We have made lasting bonds with people that see level up as a place for the community of musicians to grow. A place they can call home and a place to help them create the art that has always been inside of them. We can not say it enough. Thank you everyone who walked into our studio. We love you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts. If you've recording music at our studio we hope to see you again in 2019. If you have yet to come, we will welcome you into this place and hopefully with some sweat, determination and excitement we will help you create something you'll never forget.
From David and Tony,
Let's Level Up 2019!
All the Best

This is the part of the life of our studio that we are most proud of. When a band finally gets to release the music that they have poured their hearts into. Words can not describe the gratitude we have for working with this band. We have both grown as a studio and them as a band since the start of this record and we are honored to call them brothers. Take a listen to their record and go like their page. Much Respect and Love guys! Mark Arias Leon Naraine @alarickimperial @thevoid
