--(Thanks to "dog manic" for hosting me for the last 3 episodes of criminal minds of 12 season. Thanks to all the staff for the great professionalism which brought out Penelope Garcia and her Italian Voice Francesca. And from October we start again with the 13 season here in Italy!)"
Coros Wearables needed to record audio for several upcomming product releases. With DMRS, we received a very high quality and valuable product facilitated by professionals. We will be back."
Ali Quinn - 79' Band - Let me say, this studio is nothing short of fucking incredible. Jay and Christian are masters at what they do. After horrible recording experiences all over the state, Dogmanic Studios set a standard for excellence that our band 79' had never seen before or thought possible. The professionalism, timeliness, experience, and dedication to the craft displayed at this studio is what every business should be modeled after. Not only has our band blown up due to our recording project with Dogmanic, but we have gained lifelong respectful contacts working there that are masters at their craft. If you want the holy grail recording experience in the state of Florida, look no further than Dogmanic Studios. I will undeniably be a returning Vocalist."
Gregg Temkin - Producer - Mob Scene, Los Angeles -- Christian, Jason and the team provided an excellent experience for my VO capture needs. Communication was prompt and thorough. They were extremely accommodating of my time and schedule needs. Terrific interfacing with my clients, providing a relaxed inviting atmosphere to get our work done. And the acoustics and equipment are top notch.
I highly recommend DogManic. They were a true pleasure to deal with. "
Burny Pelsmajer - General Manager of School of Rock (CS,WB,&PB) -- Fantastic. Fantastic people, easy vibe, completely accommodating. You can come in there with any concept, from layering an entire track piece by piece to recording a jazz nonet live, and they can handle it with aplomb. Mixing was great from the get go. Prices are right. If you're recording somewhere else you need to reconsider your life choices. ALL of your life choices. Should you have dropped out of school when you were 19 to walk across Europe, only to never make it out of Delaware? When you left the Merchant Marines, should you not have become a bouncer at a Party City? Was that fish in the fridge for too long? I guess the point is: record at Dogmanic if you want your music to sound good. Bottom line."
Taz Rosenfeld - Earth Pig - Christian and Jason have helped me turn my garage band into a legitimate group of artists along every step of the way between recording, production, and publishing. They made my first studio experience something I'll remember forever, and I'm pretty sure I've made life long friends with these awesome guys."
D-hoku Tolentino - Mahalo! Mahalo! Mahalo!
I'd like to thank Christian for giving me the opportunity to create music in such a awesome studio. Thanks to my friend Conrad for introducing me and my son to such a awesome crew. I would recommend everyone who has music to share to check them out! Very efficient!"
Xiomara Braescu / Crystal X -- Collaborating with DogManic Recording Studios has truly been a distinctive & remarkable experience. As an emerging International artist I have been writing my own rock music since the age of 14, so with such sensitivity to the original content, chief engineer “Jedi” Jason Sedawie seamlessly made my debut EP come to life in EPIC fashion.
After tracking my vocals in Hawaii, songwriting in Portugal and recording and arranging my music at Abbey Road Studios in London, I wanted to try a different climate.
After talking with a few other potential studios I found DogManic Recording Studios through Google search, Christian Solazzo (the owner) offered to give me a sample of what he felt the tunes deserved and what the studio was capable off. Communication is key to me, and the fact they really listened to what I was looking for was a great incentive to book my flights to Florida, it was a no brainer.
What really took me a back was the studio’s ethos and method behind giving an artist or songwriter clear ownership in producing their own works, not only taking my input head on but also educating me on the mixing & mastering process. It was great being able to produce my first EP with Jay as the co-producer.
DogManic Recording Studio’s has awesome vibes and I would recommend any local or international artist to work with them not only once but as a career long partnership.

Cisca Munoz -- Had my final mix session today at DogManic Recording Studios i can't begin to tell you all how excited I am about this! This project has been my baby. I've taken my time with it because I wanted it done right! I didn't want to feel like "I should have sung that, or maybe this needs to be here, or take that out." This is demonstration of my art, of my love, of my music, and I wanted it done right! I can proudly say that it has far exceeded my wildest dreams!! These guys made me feel like family the moment I walked in! Trusted in my vision, helped me assemble a bad ass musician line up and let the magic happen. It's now time for the masters!! Then it's time for a release. I really hope you all enjoy this as much as i have. I am so proud of it and can't wait to share it with all of you! "
Tony Milone -- DogManic Recording Studios is a truly professional recording studio. Step inside and you will find a well equipped studio with beautiful attention to detail in acoustic treatments in all the various recording spaces they built. They have great sounding rooms/isolation booths. The décor and lighting are fantastic. It’s beautiful – you won’t want to leave once you step inside.
Most importantly, Christian and Jason really took the time to consult with the whole band on the goals of our project. They really made sure they knew what we wanted to achieve and they were incredibly accommodating and supportive in getting us there. They were extremely patient with capturing multiple takes and prepared several different mixes of the music until everyone was fully satisfied with the smallest of details. They are masters with the software and equipment and they really know how to make the artists feel like they are in a place where your creativity is valued and nurtured to fruition.
Thank you DogManic!

Ian Bird -- Top of the line facility with top of the line people. They can handle most if not all of your audio needs."
Marko Ruffolo -- Hi. My name is Marko Ruffolo and I am a Recording Studio Designer, Sound Engineer, and Record Producer. I have used DogManic Studios and have truly loved my experience! Here's why: When deciding on a Studio for a Recording Project, i look for the following: 1. Room Sound: That is, a Control Room that can correctly translate what i hear when listening in the Tracking Room (which also has to have some character) as well as when i take the mix to the Car or Home. 2. Vibe 3. State of the Art, Industry Standard, Usable Gear, kept in good working condition 4. Honest and Reliable Management Bonus features in a studio would be Cool Guitars, Bass, Keyboards and Amps laying around. Vibe: Let's start here, because this is really starting to become the #1 thing for me these days. I brought a band to that i have been producing for about three months to DogManic because they said they wanted more "Creative Vibe" from the facility we normally use. I think my favorite thing when ever i go in the Joint is the look and feel. It just inspires you to want to be at your best and crank out Art! The look has something to do with it, but i know it also comes from the Owner's philosophy and Spirit of Making Music. Christian gets it!.... And i swear, sometimes i think Jimi and Kurt stop by every once and while and give us a helping-hand. Gear: DogManic has all the right toys! They have the De Facto Gear: Current Genelec Monitors (w/sub!), UA Mic Pres and Limiters, DBX, API, Drawmer, Distressors, Manley, etc. They have all the names you expect to find. But they also have some secret weapons there too. The GAMA is my favorite! And they have Mics! The Right Mics! De Facto's such as SM57, MD421, KM184, D112, etc. The only time a bring Mics with me is if i get bored with what's in the Mic Closet... which is seldom. Room Sound: This is scary! I get my mix 85-90% of what i want on the first Bounce to Disc. That's hard to do without spending some $$ on Acoustic Treatments and Design. The Tracking Room not only looks cool with the custom lighting-design (which the Artists were blown away by) but it sounds really good (the ISOBooths too). When evaluating the Guitar Tone or Over-All Drum Timbre in the TR and then going back into the Control Room, i'm quite confident that I'm going to get a realistic representation to Tape, er' Disc! And that's important! Ownership Character: This actually goes hand in hand with my "Bonus" Criteria. So a quick anecdote. When we were setting up Guitar tone, the musicians didn't have the best of Guitars or Amps. Christian went into the TR for a listen. He hung out and got to know the guys bit. Then back into the Control Room and said "listen, i'm gonna lend your band a custom Tele and this Tom Graefe Custom Guitar Amp for the recording". We fired up The Graefe and the Rhythm Guitarist started jamming on the Tele. Those babies have some mean tone and all of the sudden, both the other Guitarist perked up. The tone inspired and blew them away. I can honestly say, i never heard them play so well (which is to be expected for Musicians, especially Guitar players). I thanked Christian and asked him why he would do this (Only one other Studio has done this for me my whole 30+years of recording)... he gave me a funny look and said, "Dude, it's the right thing". Ask yourself "when was the last time I heard that?". DogManic is going to be a hit! They are the biggest"Bang-for-the-Buck" Professional Studio in all of Broward County! PS Thank You Jason for all for the "extra" help! Use em or lose out!"
Drew Matthew -- One of the best studios in Florida. great people, great space, great sounds!"
Matthew Joy -- DogManic Studios is good coffee in fine china. It not only looks, sounds and feels good, but the engineers know what they're doing on both sides of the soundboard. If you want an all around professional recording experience, then DogManic is a studio you can feel good about working with. "
Kristin Cappiello -- Most professional . Looking forward to spending a lot of time here. Its beautiful and top of the line . So far , I am beyond pleased with the quality and professionalism."
James Ferris -- Do it. Go there and do it. A simple little imperative sentence that reveals a declarative nature to my suggestion which should lead the intuitive to grasp how heartily we enjoyed ourselves."
Jonathan Whittaker — Great dudes. Awesome gear. You won't be disappointed."
