There are many recording labels in San Francisco, but one stands out by combining their business of music into a multifaceted artist hub. Om Studios in the Dogpatch has been a source of great electronic music hits way before electronic music even broke into the mainstream with artists like Groove Armada, Blackbird Blackbird and Mushroom Jazz Mixtapes.

Spreading dance music to an eager public, Om Records is one of the U.S.’s largest independent labels. Since its inception in 1995, Om has grown with a variety of sub-labels whose genres range from deep house to hip hop. Today, Om Studios’ headquarters serves as a music venue, private events space, and art space with six electronic music imprints as well as a booking agency, and events facilitator. Their garage space has also been known to house a pop-up record shop featuring beats, eats, and coffee.

The studio itself is a bright and well-designed space perfect for gatherings. With multiple skylights, comfortable seating, and a split-level entertaining area complete with bar, Om Studios is fun for day or night. Local artist Erik Otto runs their art curation, creating a synergy between the visual and the audio.
