Every record is an exploration

Mobtown Studios is the studio of Mat Leffler-Schulman and a small team of folks providing artist-friendly recording, mixing and mastering services since 2006. We work in a variety of recording studios as well as our own production room where we take a hybrid analog-digital approach to gear and music-making. We’re proud to be an integral part of the Baltimore music scene and to work with artists from Maine to Spain to Ukraine. We pride ourselves on knowing our craft, tuning in to what the music needs, and just being nice, helpful people.

Artists we’ve worked with include American Pleasure Club, The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jon Batiste (The Late Show), Josh Gannet (Wu-Tang Clan, Redman), Ken Bethea (The Old 97s), Mark degli Antoni (Soul Coughing / David Byrne), The Dismemberment Plan, Future Islands, Ice Cube, Julia Brown, Kishi Bashi (Of Montreal), Lauren Ruth Ward, The National Symphony Orchestra, Owen Pallett (Arcade Fire/Frank Ocean), Starlight Girls, Sun Club, Teen Suicide, Waka Flocka Flame, and will.i.am.

Records and have been featured on MTV, mtvU, Saturday Night Live, The Late Show, American Idol, The Voice, and The Colbert Report.
