Our boutique studio is nestled away in the quiet, beachside town of El Segundo and surrounded by the beautiful Manhattan and Redondo Beaches.  While you're not busy receiving the highest quality recording and production services Los Angeles has to offer, take a stroll to the pier, enjoy the nearby restaurants, or drive 10 minutes to LAX where your next adventure awaits.  You'll come to Sonic Fuel for excellent music production, but return for the peace of mind that comes when you walk through the front door.
