OUR STUDIO STORY
Dugdeep recording studio was founded in 2017 as a Asbury park N.J. area Recording Studio, and as an extension of Dugdeep Production which was founded in 2000 as a music Production company by world class session musician and producer Jack Daley. www.jackdaleybassist.com
While deciding on a location we were attracted to the deep and diverse musical history of Asbury Park. Starting with the early days of Arthur Pryor and the John Philip Sousa big bands, the west side jazz scene of the 1930’s and ’40’s, the sounds of the gospel and jazz progressed into doo-wop and Rock and roll in the late 1950s, and those genres influenced the soul and funk sounds that along with rock and blues dominated by the late sixties. Then the Jersey Shore rock scene of the 1970’s and ’80’s and the amazing punk scene at the Lanes in recent years.
Not only were the sounds of music icons such as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, and Count Basie heard in venues all throughout the city of Asbury Park. Exciting Jazz, R&B, and gospel, on front porches and in backyards and parks around town, Asbury Park’s famous spots such as the Orchid Lounge may be gone now, But that sound and influence paved the way for a new wave of artists Like Bruce Springsteen, Southside Johnny and Little Steven jamming late into the night at The Upstage and influencing an entire new wave of musical history which continues today at venues like The Stone Pony, The Wonder Bar, The Saint, House of Independence and The Iconic Lanes.
So, after growing out of our home location in Monmouth beach we purchased the building and started the long process of design and approvals leading to the buildout of our new facility. We share this building at 625 Bangs ave. In downtown Asbury Park with The Daley Practice Yoga Studio.
The studio was designed by our great friend world renown Studio and speaker designer Larry Swist www.lpswistdesigns.com with some last minute tweaks by studio owner and world class studio musician Jack Daley. Offering professional music production services and full service recording to talented bands, musicians, and singer songwriters. Our rooms feature the best of both modern and vintage gear.
Our recording and production facilities are far from the claustrophobic confines typical of other studios, providing a unique and rewarding experience. Our state of the art studios provide a comfortable and innovative environment to achieve quality world class results in a warm and inviting setting in the middle of the Exciting Asbury Park Central business district.
With a spacious lounge and 2 separate rooms/facilities addressing various needs while ensuring the best possible results and rates for your project.
The Larger A Room is well suited for tracking dates featuring a full Rhythm section or for sessions where the extra room is necessary or beneficial.
Featuring beautiful southern sun exposure, warm mahogany room treatments, diffusion, and bass trapping and a great view of the street outside. (so nice to see the sunshine beaming through)
While, the smaller and more private B room is great for vocal tracking, overdubbing and of course mixing and editing.
Many projects are done in tandem with tracking going on in A while editing, tuning, and tweaking is happening in B speeding up the process and efficiency.
