Bay Eight Studios is Miami’s most exclusive and private recording facility. Nestled in the heart of North Miami's historic "Studio City" The privacy of our retro-modern influenced studio exhumes calm and soothing vibes allowing creativity to flow to its fullest potential.
Bay Eight Studios, formerly known as Midnight Blue Studios, was the creative vision of Grammy Award winning producer Fabio "Estefano" Salgado. Estefano contracted noted acoustician John Arthur and award winning mastering engineer Chris Lambert for the design and construction of his facility in early 2000.
In 2015, Matthew DeFretias purchased the three-studio facility from subsequent owner and Grammy Award winning producer Marco “Infamous” Rodriguez-Diaz, renaming it Bay Eight Recording Studios.
Bay Eight Studios offers two primary recording spaces acoustically isolated with great lines of sight for easy visual communication. Bay Eight also features many specialized custom construction techniques that make it one of the most unique recording studios in Miami.
Our recording spaces are warm, welcoming, and clean. Our control rooms feature beautiful hardwood floors, top of the line acoustic treatment, and technologies in noise vibration diffusion. The facility is complimented by deep rose purple and exotic blue lavender lights. The eccentric art and hand painted murals placed throughout our facility are courtesy of Miami visual artist LOLA BLU, and Chinese contemporary pop artist Weiyi Fan.
