Version City is the workshop of veteran producer/engineer/performer/recording artist King Django. From its creation in 1997, Version City has been an important and influential studio, particularly in New York/New Jersey ska, rocksteady, reggae and dub music. Bands and artists from all over the US and the world come to the humble basement to record, or send in their tracks for mixing, re-mixing, dub-mixing, voicing or mastering. While specializing in Jamaican and Jamaican-influenced music, Django has produced and engineered a wide range of styles including punk rock, doo-wop, jazz, rhythm & blues, klezmer, funk, hip-hop and more.
Until 2001 the studio was located in a cellar on East Third Street in NYC. Through the years many bands and artists passed through. Tons of reggae, rocksteady and ska tracks and many complete albums were recorded at the original hideout of the NYC Ska Mob. The anarchist atmosphere and strong smell of urine and raw sewage led to the spontaneous creation of the first Version City CD but also eventually contributed to the destruction of that rat-infested location.
In 2001 Django rebuilt the studio in its new location and continued improving it with new and better equipment. The new Version City, located in New Brunswick, NJ now offers both full analog and digital recording along with Django’s renowned production and engineering skills. We also offer mobile digital multi-track recording, so we can record your band anywhere! In addition, we can organize DUBPLATE and VOICING SESSIONS with many foundation reggae artists.
