In The Document Room!

New Recording Studio in Picturesque
Malibu, California

Located just off the PCH, near Kanan Dume Rd., the Document Room studio is only 2min. from Zuma beach, where you can catch some waves in between takes! Work on your tan while practicing that blazing guitar solo or go for a stroll with your bandmates or producer!

The Document Room is a Neve equipped, single room facility. Elegantly designed, by Andre Champagne, the Document Room’s control room and two tracking spaces have been constructed with both efficiency and comfort in mind.

The centerpiece of the control room features a vintage 32 channel Neve 8068 completely refurbished by Fred Hill. "The 8068 is the ultimate in analogue consoles. It has an excellent open musical sound, with all the warmth of which Neve is known for " says studio owner Meskiel.

The Document Room offers fun in the sun and in the studio with the complete concierge service you would expect from a full-service facility. Need access to world-class hotels, restaurants and spas? No worries. Located in the heart of Malibu, you're within walking distance from some of southern California's finest restaurants and shops.

"Keeping consistent with having our clients comfort always at the forefront, we offer private scenic Malibu lounges, private beach access, private bathroom with shower along with a producer's suite for those late nights," says J.T.

To get music out of a musician…sometimes you must take the musician out of the city! In Malibu, the vibe is what counts, " adds Meskiel
