We’re at the very tail end of construction of expanding Machine Room® Studio! Once completed, we will be featuring two live rooms, connected by video, with the ability to record 32 TRACKS simultaneously.Unlike most residentially-based studios, we’ll be able to offer live tracking of full bands, larger ensembles, truly isolated LOUD guitars, horn sections…you name it. Convenient load-in at studio level – no stairs! All located in a quiet and safe residential neighborhood right outside DC.Stay tuned for more details and official opening dates & times. In the meantime, continue coping well, be safe, and be kind.


Another jet-fueled pummeling track from ORLANDO fURIOSO HC! Mosh to the hardcore sounds of your darkest nightmares. Happy Halloween III ! All music and vocals by Nick Sawaya; mixed and mastered by yours truly.


From brand new artist, ORLANDO fURIOSO HC, comes a politically charged onslaught – with original lyrics for the times, a hardcore metal reworking of a seminal Dead Kennedys song…feast your eyes and ears!

21 months in the making, I am thrilled to announce the debut release from DCs own Vico Cycle. Available through all digital outlets – here’s a link to their Spotify playlist! It was an honor to produce this EP with these truly stand-up dudes, and talented musicians. And thanks to all those who came in to add their own little something to help bring these great songs to life.

My project, UBIQUITY MACHINE, has decided to release it’s debut LP on Bandcamp. As our plans for a proper release show have been temporarily scrapped, we decided to unleash our music to the world! Thanks for all your generosity and support!

For more information on this release, visit Music Giff’s website or his Bandcamp page.
