An independent musician confident and ready to work with others. Somewhere between the "kid on his laptop" and the "overpriced studio" you'll find us ready for you.

Negative Labs is a proud independent studio based in California's amazingly diverse Bay Area, owned and operated by Lydell Storm. He writes, records, mixes and masters all of his own music and is always looking for others to work with, even if their genre's are quite different. Having grown up playing with countless groups through high school and college, in the pursuit of finding others as serious as himself he established Negative Labs music studio where he continues to push the limits of music while also offering lessons in piano, guitar, bass and other instruments.

Having played on GMST tour, worked as a producer for local talent, created full commercials for small businesses, and contracted by Chinese network CCTV as a music producer for multiple television shows, there is far between that Lydell Storm don't have personal experience dealing with. We emphasize our prices are not a reflection of skill but of everybody wanting to "low-ball" a new studio, meaning our prices will not stay the way they are for long!

For those interested, our studio uses analog/computer techniques for almost everything. We also use Google Wallet or Venmo as well.
Every track will always be sent pre-mixed, 100% free!
