District Sound Lab is the top recording studio in the Washington DC area that focuses on the recording, mixing and mastering of hip hop, dance music and pop. We have worked with hundreds of clients from the DC area and all over the country. There is a reason why a majority of our clients keep coming back... No one else has our work ethic and sound.

District Sound Lab is a full service recording studio just outside Washington DC. It is owned and operated by accomplished head engineer Calin Enache.

We have a fully equipped studio space with a blend of state of the art digital and analog gear. We offer recording, mixing, mastering, post-production, mobile recording, podcasts, and voiceovers. Our primary focus is on the production, recording and mixing of hip hop, dance music, and pop.

District Sound Lab has earned a reputation in the DC area for being a very different kind of studio. All our sessions are private and by appointment only. We like to provide a very laid back, creative environment to work in. And above all else, we always strive to provide a world class sound quality for urban music that is often only found in older studios that have been around for decades and work primarily on rock and other styles. This has always been our goal, to be the DC area's most effective studio for the genres we enjoy working with.
