Hello! I am Ile. I compose, produce & mix music. I am passionate about it, and I am excited to work with you!
I started my music career as a guitar player at age of 14, then moved to a singer-songwriting career and eventually to produce music.
I produce, mix and master most of my songs.
I specialize in different kinds of EDM genres and Pop music.
I am official member of The Study of Digital Music Innovation ALLIANCE, founded by the highly respected Luca Pretolesi (Major Lazer, Morgan Page, Snoop Lion, etc.) and Studio DMI.
I work in different DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) depending on the genre:
Logic Pro, Cubase Pro, Studio One, Reason, Reaper.
Besides my pop music career, I am also classically trained musician and have worked as Solfeggio, Music Theory and Harmony professor. I am also capable of professionally orchestrating your songs if that needs to be done either in pop, acoustic or classical arrangement of a song.
Feel free to contact me for any questions. I would be very happy to work with you!

Interview with Ile Spasev
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Listen to the songs preview on the provider's page. See if that particular producer or songwriter or mixing/mastering engineer is the right person for you. He or she may be the best in their field, but may not be the right person for you in terms of genre especially. Search for a similar musical souls as yours. The connection with the provider is the most important. Once you've decided with whom you will work, believe them 100%! That will motivate them to give their best for your project.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I've worked with a very talented singer on a melody that is kind of an evergreen style but we wanted to make the production modern. My role was a music producer, mixing and mastering engineer. I am very proud of how the song was finished and the feedback we had afterwards. It makes me love my job even more!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A project funded through Soundbetter. Singer-songwriter from US hired me to do a production for him. I am extremely happy and looking forward to finish the job so we could all be happy with the end result.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Personally no, but I have found several producers here who are top notch! I would be happy to recommend them based on their info, reviews and the song previews.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Digital sounds modern, you can save time and you can be more creative in a timely manner. Analog because it just sounds more wide, open, 3D and gives something to your record that can't be done with the digital.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will give you my best to make the best out of your projects.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The possibility to Imagine. To work with different genres, artists and personalities.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Is it ok if they send me a demo of their song recorded on a mobile phone without an instrumental background. I am ok with that as long as I can understand the melody and the lyrics clearly through the recording.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That it is an easy hobby done out of leisure.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What needs to be done? Where do you want to take the song from here in terms of production? What are your favorite genres and which genre particularly do you like for this song?
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Keyboard, computer with lots of plugins, audio interface, mic and guitar.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Modern, Innovative, Creative.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Use your imagination and be unique!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop. Funk. EDM. R&B.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I listen to the song's melody and lyrics few days everywhere before I got to work with it in my studio. I listen it on my phone, in my car, on my lap top, etc., in order to get the feeling of the song. Then the music production comes more easily and spontaneously to me. I am in constant contact with the songwriter and the artist updating them of the process and hearing their opinion as to where we are with the song and where we want to take it from there. The songwriter's/artist's opinion and validation is extremely important to me. I want all of us to be happy with and excited about the project.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: About 15 years as a singer and songwriter and 10 years as a producer.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Ellie Goulding, because she is unique and passionate in everything she does.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Imagination and work done.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Producing and Mixing.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Brauner Phantom Classic mic. Audient ID22. Dynaudio BM6. Cubase 9.5 Pro. Studio One 4 Pro. Propellerhead's Reason 10.1. Korg PA 50 keyboard.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Max Martin, Greg Kurstin, Luca Pretolesi, Manny Marroquin.
