Meet Dave

David Kutch is a 33 time Grammy Nominated Mastering Engineer (Billie Eilish, HER, Jay Z, Beyonce, The Weeknd, Karol G) and a Latin Grammy Record of the Year winner for Luis Fonsi’s international hit “Despacito”.  He is also the owner of The Mastering Palace in New York City.

David’s career began working alongside legendary artists, producers, and engineers in NYC’s best recording studios including The Hit Factory, Powers House of Sound, Masterdisk, and Sony Studios.  

In 2007 he built his own studio, The Mastering Palace where he still works today with an ever-increasing list of incredibly talented artists including, Billie Eilish, The Weeknd, Alicia Keys, Black Pink, Karol G, Zara Larsson, Katy Perry, Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Janelle Monáe, Justin Timberlake, John Legend, Becky G, Andra Day, Ozzy Osbourne, Carlos Vives, Kurt, Juanes, Alvaro DeLuna, A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, Black Bear,  XXXTentacion, Camila Cabello, Zac Brown Band, and the list goes on……

Not only has The Mastering Palace’s client list grown but so has the list of services provided. From cutting Vinyl Masters on our completely refurbished Neumann VMS 70 lathe to Dolby ATMOS mixes, we can provide our artists with every possible master needed.

“In recent years the number of independent artists recording albums on their own has grown exponentially. This is happening around the WORLD from Asia to Morocco, Venezuela, and Bulgaria (yes Bulgaria – some of their female rappers are pure fire!)… and WHAT they are creating from their bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens is AMAZING! I believe this trend will only continue to increase and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be able to help these new artists put the final sonic touches on their creations.” – Dave Kutch
