1935

a recording and production studio in South Philadelphia.

About

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

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 are at once both current and timeless. Located in a former Mummer clubhouse, the studio spans nearly 2000 square feet and is arranged without a traditional isolated control room. This layout fosters better communication between everyone and helps alleviate the dreaded “fishbowl” effect.  There are three different isolation areas available as well as plenty of space and gobos for separation while tracking – or you can strip it all away and let it bleed. 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, 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 clients from right down the street to California to New York to Italy, don’t let geography stop you from working here.  Media clients benefit from Pete’s nearly 20 years of experience in the post-production world, which includes ADDY-award winning sound design, commercial and long-form editorial and mixing, original scoring, and more.
