I've worked with Zé Luis for many years and he is one of the best music producers, engineers and musicians in NYC. He is not only extremely professional and talented but he is so fun! He absolutely knows how to create a vibe and capture it. I highly recommend this studio.

I am lost of words of how amazing the experience was being in the Atelier Music Studio, my brother Luis is a talented professional that made me feel comfortable and helped me achieve my sound that so many people now learned to love. Walking into this studio and meeting Luis changed my life and to this day I am humbled and so grateful to have been in the presence of such a talented engineer. The studio it's self is very homey and you feel like you're at home the entire time with some nice water to keep you hydrated and focused. The equipment is all up to date and fresh so you can really have that sound that you desire. if I could do it again I could and I will !! Thank you so much for helping me on my career as an musical artist !! ~Crazy K3N

Working with Zé was an amazing experience across the board. I had a project ready for mastering and in my search for a studio/engineer, I discovered The Atelier Music Studio (down the corridor from me!). The room itself is an intimate setting and sounds great. Zé was professional and attentive throughout the process -- his communications were clear, while his knowledge and experience created great confidence. He was a pleasure to work with and my project sounds awesome -- beyond expectations. Highly Recommend.
