A music recording and audio post production studio in Philadelphia.


Founded in 2003 in the heart of South Philadelphia, 1935 is the recording studio and production work space of producer/engineer/mixer/sound designer/composer Pete Rydberg. 1935 provides multiple audio services to a media-based client roster and offers production, engineering, mixing, and mastering services for musicians.

Media clients have relied upon Pete’s 20 years of experience in post production audio generating content for TV, radio, film, corporate video, online, social, and AR/VR platforms – which includes award winning sound design, original music, commercial and long-form editorial and mixing, voice casting, music supervision, location audio, and more. 1935 is also a certified Source Connect studio, so ISDN sessions from anywhere around the world are a breeze.

With a relaxed and familiar atmosphere that allows musicians to perform their best, 1935 blends both old and new technology and techniques to help create productions that both current and timeless. Located in a former Mummer clubhouse, the studio spans over 2000 square feet and is arranged without a traditional isolated control room, which makes for an easier workflow and promotes better communication between everyone. The studio is centered around Pro Tools HD and a Neotek Series I console that has seen plenty of Philadelphia music history: from WFLN’s live remote recordings of the Philadelphia Orchestra to Schoolly D’s groundbreaking “P.S.K. What Does It Mean?” to Marah’s Kids In Philly.

Whether it’s indie rock, garage rock, roots rock, psych rock, skull-crushing metal, traditional folk music, or charming ukulele ensembles, when it comes to music the focus is always on making great recordings. And if you’ve already made a great recording and just need a great mix, that’s easy too. With mix clients from right down the street to California to New York to Italy, don’t let geography stop your project from coming to 1935.
