Just when you think a recording studio couldn’t look any Fly’er!

Leading the charge is OZ Studios, a new world-class facility in Manhattan’s Garment District. Owned by the highly successful multimedia company MBK Entertainment — which counts Alicia Keys, Elle Varner, Gabi Wilson, Daisha, Allen Stone, Anthony Hall, and SWV among others on its production/management roster.
OZ is an elite, commercially available two-room production space which should prove to be an ideal environment for tracking and mixing.
OZ was designed by John Storyk of Walters-Storyk Design Group (WSDG), and features two relatively compact production suites. First is Studio A, a 230 sq. ft. live room, and 190 sq. ft. control room equipped with an SSL Duality SE 24 Input Analog Console, Apple Logic Pro Studio, Avid Digidesign HD3, Augspurger Custom Main Monitors and a wide range of outboard gear. OZ’ 150 sq. ft. Studio B control room has an SSL Matrix console, Adams S5X-V speakers and a 60 sq. ft. sound booth. Both studios are adjacent to a 600 sq. ft.-plus common lounge area.
WSDG came to the attention of MBK Founder/CEO Jeff Robinson and his partners Jeanine Mclean, Misha Hedman, and Suzette Williams, following John Storyk’s work for Alicia Keys, Jay-Z, and Jungle City. Subsequently, WSDG collaborated with contractors Sonic Construction and gear integrators GC Pro Boston to complete the facility.

Located on the 19th floor at 519 8th Avenue, OZ also provides wide views of the Hudson River, a perspective which also reportedly includes highly inspiring sunset views. Designed to accommodate both OZ artists and outside sessions, the studio plans to make an immediate impact on music, film, and TV.
“We are developing a program to maximize the potential of our new studio,” Robinson says. “While our artists will have first dibs on studio time for their projects, we plan to make this outstanding studio available to outside artists, producers engineers as well as for film/TV production. In the years to come, we hope to see a return on our investment, not just in monetary terms, but also as a source for meaningful, lasting music. These studios are finely tuned instruments. We are developing a number of highly talented artists, and we anticipate a steady flow of hits from this beautiful facility.”
