Welcome to


Eric 'Baron' Behrenfeld

Artist • Musician • Recordist

Back in early 2018, I was looking for a new studio space where I could record, rehearse, teach and use for music production as well as for video and photography.


However, I wanted an environment to work and create in, and not be just a cookie-cutter production suite or grungy band rehearsal room.

I wanted to use the space for creative projects, but most importantly, I really wanted to enjoy going there anytime 24/7 and play drums!


As I put the room together, leopard print continually kept getting in the mix of choices for aesthetic decor. I love the old Exotica album art and Tiki bar decorum.

I also like that people call musicians "cats" sometimes too! So blue leopard print is a nod to all us "Blues Cats" out there!




I greatly desired more than a typical tech-style layout for the space. I wanted this creative operation center to be a "lair with flair" for myself and visitors to escape here for creative focus and inspiration.

This is my urban music retreat for you to learn, play, record or listen to music, without worry, judgement or intrusions. A place to focus, in an atmosphere with some vibe and grit, encouraging musical creativity and spontaneity. And yes, I will admit there had to be a "Tiki" nuance in the space as well too!



I want creative types coming here to have memorable, fun and productive recording experience. The room has a great live sound, and is ideal for one or two people recording comfortably.

I use Logic Pro X for recording and mixing, with projects usually being under 50 audio tracks with my DAW set up at this time. I record in 24 bit, 48 kHz.




I also have a vocal booth annex at the Blue Leopard Lair for isolated recordings.


I am a big fan of Blues, Classic Rock, Country, Americana, Exotica, R&B, Soul, Latin Jazz, Pop, Trance, Drum and Bass, Dub, Reggae and Tropical Rock.
