Northridge, CA (January 26, 2011)–The main songwriter/producer at DeeTown Entertainment, Alana Da Fonseca, has installed a pair of LSR4328 8-inch monitors in her new production room.
Founded in New York City by producer/writer/performer Ali Dee Theodore, DeeTown’s credit list includes the soundtracks for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Iron Man, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Sex and the City, Transformers, Alvin and the Chipmunks and Hannah Montana.
“When I play back a mix for a client, I need speakers that can really bump,” said Da Fonseca, who requires a reliable and powerful monitor that provides an accurate representation of her mixes. “I also need them to be accurate at lower levels so I can hear all the detail when I mix and produce a track. It’s great being able to rely on only one set of monitors for both purposes.”
With more than a dozen production rooms and a roster of artists that make up its production team, DeeTown takes a unique “songwriting by committee” approach. “We have a stable of highly proficient musicians and vocalists, each of whom brings something unique to the table,” Da Fonseca said. “Our approach allows us to produce a great amount of material without sacrificing quality for speed. We’ve developed a system that allows us to operate with extreme efficiency while continually inspiring each other.”
DeeTown opened the doors of its new studios on Park Avenue South in September, 2010. Having purchased JBL LSR studio monitors prior to relocating, Da Fonseca said the transition to the new room was smooth. “The advantage of the LSR monitors is that they tune to the room, and they sound amazing in every environment,” she said. “I tell everyone, no matter what room you’re in, these speakers will perform great.”
