About the Owner and Chief Engineer:
For Rubin Nizri at New Record Studios, being able to work with and record some of the brightest up-and-coming artists in New York City is just as satisfying as working with and recording the best. Whether it’s Lady Gaga or the next Sheryl Crow, the owner and chief engineer of New Record Studios takes his inspiration from sound – good sound.
“When something sounds good, it’s effortless,” believes Rubin, who founded New record Studios in 1999. For the first thirteen years, it was located in a church on the Upper East Side of New York City. Looking to grow, Rubin began searching for a new location. After two years, he found a spot that embodies the vibrancy and promise of the artists he works with – the Powerhouse Arts District of downtown Jersey City.
“Jersey City is a stone’s throw away from Manhattan and it’s become a growing artist community that keeps growing every day,” he says. Four months of intense labour and hard-earned sweat later, Rubin built the recording studios from the ground up, into its new home in Jersey City.
He describes New Record Studios as a place where musicians can relax: “It’s a commercial recording studio built in the way of a home recording studio. So it’s almost like you’re recording in your living room at home, but you’re in a full-on recording studio.”
To each session, Rubin brings his experience as a sound engineer, producer and professional drummer, having played with many local New York City bands. He is a live recording engineer at The Cutting Room NYC, a venue where he worked as a sound engineer too. Rubin also designed the sound system and acoustics in their new location on 32nd Street.
