Mike Tedesco live recording showcases Dubway's Mezzanine studio

Musician and songwriter Mike Tedesco brought his band to the Mezzanine studio at Dubway for a live tracking session with a video team. The result is a lovely video of our studio that shows its capabilities as both a live event space and a tracking facility. Our engineers Sam Palumbo and Chris Camilleri handled record and mix engineering, respectively, to help produce this videoed performance.

You can catch Mike live in New York at a string of upcoming shows (see link to his website, above) and stream his new EP on Spotify.

Mixing Ana Gasteyer's new album

Actress, comedian, and musician Ana Gasteyer (SNL, Suburgatory) has been working on a new Christmas album, and Dubway’s Sam Palumbo has as well. The sequel to Gasteyer’s 2014 I’m Hip is titled Sugar and Booze and is being mixed in Dubway’s Red Room. The album is being produced by the similarly multitalented Julian Fleisher (actor, bandleader, writer, and composer) and is shaping up to be just as fun as the team bringing it to life.

A release date for the album is as-of-yet to be determined, but you can catch Gasteyer’s live show at a number of cities in the coming months, and her previous album is available on all major platforms.
