Recording Engineer and Producer, Kanye West

Noah Goldstein is a Grammy-winning recording engineer working exclusively in the music industry.


Following the completion of his master’s degree in 2006, Goldstein left Temple University for Iceland to complete one final internship at Greenhouse Studios, where he formed professional relationships that would allow him to move to New York and begin his career.


He quickly obtained a position at Electric Lady Studios. Originally owned by Jimi Hendrix, this studio’s 40-year history became the ideal place to learn advanced recording techniques. Goldstein had the privilege to work with artists like Keith Richards, Coldplay, Alicia Keys, Weezer and Mos Def.


In 2010, Goldstein began to take on freelance engineering opportunities. His first project, The Suburbs by the Arcade Fire, was named “Album of The Year” at the 2011 Grammy Awards. Since then, he has worked independently with many artists in the hip-hop community, and is currently the exclusive engineer for Kanye West. With West, Goldstein has worked on the Grammy-winning albums My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Watch The Throne and Cruel Summer. He was the associate producer for West’s sixth studio album entitled Yeezus.


Goldstein has engineered more than 20 gold and platinum singles and albums.
