Kev Working

Kevin Blackler is a mastering engineer based in Brooklyn, NY and has been working professionally in the music industry since 1999. After graduating from Berklee College of Music, he moved to New York City where he was hired at Sony Music Studios as an assistant mastering engineer and eventually worked his way up to staff engineer. While at Sony, Kevin worked on a wide variety of projects for clients like Rick Ruben, The Metropolitan Opera, Kanye West, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and many others. 

 In 2007 Sony announced it would be closing its doors and shutting down operations. Luckily, Kevin was able to purchase the entire room he worked in while at Sony and rebuild it at his current location in Brooklyn, NY. Since opening his studio Kevin has worked on a wide variety of projects for both independent artists and major labels alike. Some of the artists Kevin has mastered while at Blackler Mastering include several artists under Jay Z’s label Roc Nation, Nikolai Fraiture of The Strokes, Sean Ono Lennon, Broadway Superstar Jennifer Holiday, Jazz legends Lee Konitz, Wallace Roney, and Joey DeFrancesco, various Ken Burns Motion Picture Soundtracks, and a 2020 Grammy nomination for an album he mastered by saxophonist Melissa Aldana.
