Recording at Funkadelic

Meet Our Engineer

Being the son of a DJ, house engineer Serge Henderson has been open to many different genres of music his entire life. His parents reared him on everything from Reggae, 80’s Rock to Disco. As Serge matured, he fell in love with other genres as well. Those genres, including Hip-Hop and Jazz, helped mold his palette and prepare him for the work he does today. Because of his musical experience, Serge has broad appreciation of music and a unique approach to each artist he collaborates with.

In 2012, Serge began honing his skills as an engineer. He feels right at home as an audio engineer, and offers services in Recording, Mixing, Mastering, and Production. During his three years at Funkadelic Studios, he has worked with a variety of artists, from Hip-Hop battle rapper DNA to the Harlem Gospel Choir. He’s well equipped to take care of your audio needs!
