Stagg Street Studio

Stagg Street Studio Our studio is home to a true vintage API console, consisting of a 32 Channel section circa 1977, with the original mega-headroom 312 mic pres and 554 semi-parametric EQ's, and an original 16 Channel section, circa 1972, the sound that launched the API reputation, equipped with beloved 550 EQ's.

A better drum sound can not be had, and the design of the studio, with the three iso rooms in addition to the main space, is ideal for tracking a band live. Put all that together with great mics and the many years of experience of the staff, and you have a combination that ensures a positive recording experience, as close to a sure thing as you will find.

Happy Fourth of July Stagg Street Studio and thank you for our past hits recorded at your awesome place... Here is a song we made our video in their Blue Room https://youtu.be/-63KypS1KHs
“The more you know, the more you know you dont know” _ Thank you Philip Lassiter for even just having me in the room. This means so much to me. Genuinely. _ 📍 Stagg Street Studio . . . _ #musicproducer #recordingsession www.instagram.com/joshperalesmusic
We had the opportunity to fly to Los Angeles, California to record a song that means a lot to me. It's called "Music Is Dead" and I hope it does to you what it does to us. Mental Health has been a recurring issue amongst many of us in the Cast of Bella Madness. My own story with depression has been a long and difficult one, but I've noticed that taking to music has always been my greatest help. This song portays a side of me I don't show often but I think it's time to share because it has allowed me to identify myself and who I am as an artist. My voice always cracks singing this record. We wanted to showcase that our music addresses a broad range of topics within Hip-Hop: from politics and mental health, to social justice and gay rights. What a journey it's been to be able to create music with some of my best friends Gaia (on Bass) and Riccardo (on Keys). They both added so much flavor and color to the song. Ricci is an insane pianist who has the soul of a chameleon and Gaia is simply the queen of bass who baffles the world with her heart. How lucky I am to be able to count with Leonardo Bertinelli being there for us not only musically but in every level of the bromance spectrum. He produced, engineered and co-arranged Music Is Dead. He deserves the world. I have nothing but eternal gratitude and love for you incredible people, friends who believe in me and our project every day. To everyone dealing with mental health issues, you are not alone. There are resources all around us ready to help, all you have to do is speak up. I hope you join me in sharing this video on your socials. We're working extremely hard on this album and we are all very excited to share it with you soon! Thank you to my friends, family and the Berklee College of Music community for giving us the resources and platforms to share our art with the world. Thank you Marco for blessing us with your spirit and thank you to Stagg Street Studio for hosting us and treating us so well!
