Welcome to the Secret Stash Studio

Secret Stash Records is an independent record label based in Minneapolis, MN.  Founded in 2009, it was originally a vinyl-only reissue label.  Eventually we expanded into compact discs and digital distribution.  In 2013 we built our first recording studio and began recording new music for release on the label.It was a small studio that was utilized almost exclusively for projects released by us.

In early 2015 our new facility was built as an analog-focused recording studio with a completely integrated digital side.  Though it was originally constructed around the needs of our house band, The Lakers (of Sonny Knight and The Lakers), the studio books other label and non-label projects ranging from Afrobeat to Krautrock, and Indie.  Located in a converted warehouse in historic Loring Park, the space boasts a very large, airy live room with high ceilings and plenty of baffling so groups of any size can cut tracks at real volumes, in real time. Our equipment list is packed with classic amps, rare microphones, world-class outboard gear, three iconic tape decks, and high-quality, transparent digital conversion.

Please have a look around and don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
