Patrick Maresco (Deflect) on SoundBetter

I am a 20 year-old, R&B / 80's pop inspired producer, writer and singer. Submersed in 80's synthpop sounds and influences, I create high-caliber glossy 80's synth-pop, combining my love of modern pop and hip-hop trends with a retro twist. Let me help create the sounds you envision in your head.

I am a student of the 80's synth era, and an inspired producer, writer and singer who got my starts in the suburbs of Washington D.C. I am a Logic Pro X devotee with a knack for mixing modern pop influences with 80s drum kits and synth sounds, but I have also been known to dip into Latin, hip-hop, R&B, and trap areas with my own unique take and high production quality.

My newest EP is a full-blown display of everything I bring to the table: radio production quality with a myriad of different sounds and genres. From the 80's pop meets modern radio "Smooth," to the Latin-infused dance rhythms of "Hey Mamacita," to the Stranger Things-inspired "Locked Away" -- all the way to the gritty hip-hop take on anxiety in "Unusual" -- these songs showcase my expansive production, mixing and toplining abilities in various fields.

Fueled with 80's synth sounds, an ever-expanding toolkit, and a continuing push to grow, the journey into synthwave, funk and R&B jams has just begun.

    Patrick was wonderful to collaborate with; Communicative and helpful through and through. Patrick does an excellent job of balancing teamwork and respect for his collaborator with being confident about his own individual ideas and input, making for both a pleasant and efficient work partner. Patrick is great at making deadlines and getting you what you need when you need it!

    Quick work on a short deadline for us. Came up with some interesting synth parts that fit what we were going for.

    I first heard rumblings about Patrick several years ago when he was making GarageBand beats. Even then, I was thoroughly impressed by his creativity & passion despite limited resources. I kept my ear to the ground about Patrick's journey, and did he ever progress. Within a year he was proficient in professional workstations, synthesizers, mixing tools, & plugins, & he only keeps growing stronger. I've worked with Patrick many times, and what he brings to the table is always fresh. He’s easy to work with, and dedicates his professional ear and visionary mind to each and every project. Hire him.

    Pat is not only great at what he does, but he is also great to work with. He draws from a deep well filled with a wide range of musical influences when he produces and you can definitely hear it in his productions. I have worked with him on multiple projects and can vouch for his dedication and willingness to get things right. I would very strongly recommend working with him on your next track!
