Hi, I'm a music producer based in New York City. Originally from France, I moved to the big apple nearly 10 years ago to pursue audio engineering studies (SAE). After an internship at Puremagnetik/Ableton, I quickly stepped into the professional world and started working as a freelance music producer.
As both an audio engineer and a keyboard player, I am both technically and musically inclined. I can do any style but EDM and pop are the ones I'm the best at. I have worked on countless projects but the most notable to date is "Miguel - Do You” which I co-produced at Platinum Sound, Wyclef Jean’s studio. I have also released some of my personal work on Defected, Hed Kandi, Wagram, and other labels.
I also have a youtube channel --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yquW9cgGe3U

Michel was AMAZING. He was the perfect combination of professional, yet down to earth. He was passionate about the music, and most importantly; really, really, good at what he does. He brought my vision to light and it ended up being better than I could have ever imagined! I can’t thank him enough and I will definitely be working with him again.
