Let ‘Em In Music is a recording studio in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. It is open to musicians, engineers, and producers alike.

With its large live room (450 sq. ft. and 13’ ceilings), a comfortable light-filled control room (22’x15), and an iso booth big enough for a drum set (8.5’x6’), the studio easily accommodates bands and ensembles of up to 14 people.

Producer Nadim Issa opened Let ‘Em In Music in 2009 with the main goal of creating a spacious yet intimate setting, one that would fully lend itself to hanging out and crafting sounds in comfort.

Let ‘Em In Music’s live room has a “wonderfully vintage woody sound”.  While it has the dynamics of a large and lively sounding room, it is still fairly dark in character and adds a certain warmth to any recording.

The studio is outfitted with a 24-channel (i/o) Apogee Symphony recording system, classic analog outboard pieces, and vintage instruments and amplifiers.  Its reliable and functionally simplistic design is an attractive quality for many freelance engineers and producers who regularly use the facility.

Our establishment in Brooklyn affords us the greatest pleasure of working with a broad spectrum of clients.  From indie rock bands, to pop artists, to jazz combos and to classical orchestras, we can accommodate any genre of music and any project. Be it simply mixing a track that was recorded elsewhere or full on album production, we enjoy doing it all.

All sounds are welcome.
