Greene St. Recording

Greene St. Recording

Profile:
A recording studio that operated in New York City's Soho neighborhood from 1975 until 2001. It was one of the early headquarters of hip-hop during the 1980s and 1990s.

Founded in 1975 as Big Apple Recording, it initially operated as a partnership between the Philip Glass music director Michael Riesman and producer Steve Loeb. The first studio manager was Jonathan Katz who would later make a name for himself as "Dr Katz" a popular albeit cartoon figure on Comedy Central and the first studio chief engineer was Wieslaw Woszczyk now Dr. Wieslaw Woszczyk who holds the James McGill Chair Professorship in Sound Recording and is the Founding Director of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology at McGill University.

In 1980, it changed its name to "Greene Street Recording" when Loeb bought out Riesman. Former Woszczyk assistant Rod Hui became chief engineer and Robyn Sansone became studio manager. In the first year as Greene Street under Loeb, Hui and Sansone, Greene Street recorded and mixed a number of records including the three groundbreaking hits Shannon's "Let The Music Play", Kurtis Blow's "The Breaks" and Run DMC's "It's Like That".

In 1983 when Dave Harrington came on board as studio manager, Greene Street underwent renovation adding an additional two rooms installing NY's first AMEK APC 1000 mixing desk with Massenburg moving fader automation and also the first pair of Roger Quested tri amped main monitor system.

The studio ultimately closed in 2001.
