Current mood: anxious
Category: Music
From the Gunshine (Florida) to Pistolvania… Shorty Produkshins introduces Shorty’s Playground, a quiet, yet private recording studio to the Greater New Kensington/ Pittsburgh area.

With years of professional training, talent, and low prices for studio, film, and commercial needs, you would be a little slow to go elsewhere. We are currently in the finishing stages of this building project, and it should be finished by late July/ early August. We will take on a few projects in the meantime.

If you would like to be one of the first to find out about special pricing, the opening and location (which we are keeping on the low), reply with your e-mail, name and phone number.

Thanks!

Jessica “Mz Shorty P” Abraham

Archive – New Location : The Return Of the Playground (June 2008)

Shorty Produkshins has moved into a new location, giving Shorty Produkshins a new home for a new studio. As you know, January 2006 marked the loss of the original Shorty’s Playground due to bad judgement in partnership possibilities. Shorty Produkshins is starting from the ground up, yet with quite a few exciting new changes.

The new studio will be modelled a lot like the Altamonte Springs location, but will be kept more discreet, offering walk in clients a few features not offered in that location. Yes, there may be a fee to use just SOME of these new features, but for the most part… they will be included with your packaged deal. These features will not be disclosed on the website.

Shorty’s Playground is in the process of being built, sound-proofed, and filled. “We have enough plug-ins and equipment now to get the job done to quality, but I’m trying to have my work pouring out top notch.

We will be using Shorty’s Playground as a pre production studio and post house for the time being. But, I will outsource to a larger studio in the meantime to give you that perfect quality you desire,” states Shorty P… the woman in charge!

Word will be out as to when the studio is ready to start accepting clients and give out this location to the public. Stay tuned for more details!
