This building has 40 years of Hip-Hop history running through it.

Even before In Ya Ear Recordings obtained ownership, this was the best recording facility in New York, recording the most elite artists of the 80s and 90s. Known as “Power Play Studios,” this studio recorded legends like Run-DMC, Eric B & Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Roxane Shante’ and LL Cool J just to name a few. In 1998, Robert Diaz & Ax Trax renovated and renamed the renowned location to “In Ya Ear Recordings” and continued the tradition of working and building an extensive clientele list with the likes of Showbiz & AG, Nas, Large Professor, Beatnuts, Lord finesse, Mobb Deep, Kurrupt, Tyrese, Fat Joe, Joel Ortiz, and the list continues.
