2 Reviews - 1 Repeat ClientEndorse Julio César
Julio César is truly a magician and utmost professional. This is my second time working with Julio César and I am so proud of the songs he has arranged and produced for me!! This time, I tasked him with arranging/producing a Latin fusion pop song mixing two very distinct and, to my knowledge, not previously fused genres: Bolero and Regaetton. JC knocked it out of the park, nailed my intention, and created a new genre. He was fluent in Bolero and Ragaetton, and blended the two magically! Gracias!
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Julio César! A Latin-Grammy nominated singer and songwriter, his work is truly outstanding. He took my original song to a current and commercial level by making great instrumental and arrangement choices. He also provided incredible vocal guidance to bolster my performance and is a delight to work with. What an amazing opportunity to work with a fellow Venezuelan and benefit from his wisdom, experience, and musicianship! 100% recommended.

So, my first objective, is to share my knowledge and experience with my clients by working with them. I like to “shape well” the songs, (considering structure, melodies, lyrics, chords and rhythm). Once we got a great song, I start the producing process by designing the sound; defining genre, instruments and elements to be recorded.
