LOS ANGELES — Bi-coastal audio post house Racket Club has added to its West Coast team with the recent hiring of executive producer Adrea Lavezzoli and sound designer/mixer Nathan Dubin. Racket Club specializes in creating sound for picture, and is the sister company of post house Uppercut, which has locations in New York, Atlanta and Los Angeles. The studio has been in business since 2019 and has a studio in Culver City, where it’s worked on projects for Impossible Foods, Volvo, BMW, Toyota, Benjamin Moore and Google.

Dubin started sculpting soundwaves as a teenager, writing and recording music. His career as a sound designer and mixer began shortly after that, and he’s since gone on to win a Clio Award for his work scoring commercials. His versatile sonic style can be heard on spots for Kia, Pepsi, Universal Studios, Toyota and Jack In The Box.
Adrea Lavezzoli has a diverse and storied career producing music and sound. In addition to her commercial work, she’s also collaborated with Will Ferrell on Anchorman 2, and worked with professional football players on EA Madden NFL games. In addition, she has recording a New Orleans band in the historic United Recording Studios. Previously at Beacon Street Studios, Lavezzoli later worked at Netflix during the pandemic before joining Racket Club. Her work has been nominated for many AICP and Clio awards, as well as an Emmy for the opening credits of the comedy series Spoils of Babylon.
“Adrea and Nathan are superstars, and we are truly lucky to have them on our team,” says Justin Hori, Racket Club’s creative director and partner. “Adrea is a natural leader for our West Coast office. It’s clear that she loves the work she does, and that energy is undeniably contagious. Nathan’s work in commercials and films is a step above the rest. He is a genius of his craft, and it’s already been such a pleasure seeing him in action. I’m confident these two will continue to lift Racket Club’s superior audio post production standards.”
