The Scoop

Nadim Issa opened Let Em In with the goal of giving musicians and producers the opportunity to hunker down and experiment in a comfortable and homey setting; to forget the clock; to give their music the time it deserves. The studio features an ample 450 square-foot live room with 13’ ceilings, a comfortable 22’x15’ control room, and a lounge.
