Marco Donnarumma on SoundBetter

Artist, producer, engineer and sound designer with over 15 years of experience in electronic music production. Credits include Universal Music, Monstercat, Never Say Die, One Love etc. featured on spotify editorial playlists, getting millions of streams across the platforms.

My productions got played at festivals and radios all over the world by big names like David Guetta, Afrojack, Diplo & Friends, Alison Wonderland, Jauz, Zeds Dead, Excision, Flux Pavilion, Zomboy etc.

I am specialised into electronic music related works, more specifically dubstep, drum'n'bass, house/tech house, EDM, hip hop and trap beats, bass music, future bass, techno.

Everything is fully produced, mixed and mastered by me, designed to sound at the best quality possible from the huge festival sound system to the cheap bluetooth speaker.

With more than 15 years of experience in studio, night life and daily listening sessions, I work full time with music and all its related aspects.

I produce for artists all over the world, giving life to their ideas and establishing a solid relationship, we are good friends and team workers. The communication between the artist and the producer plays a vital role during the entire process of creation. I just need to understand the core idea, and I will give life to it. I used to work with reference tracks and I offer unlimited revisions. I constantly send updates to make sure the needs are fully satisfied.

I am also available to teach you how to start and develop your journey into music production, but also how to do promotion. I can teach you the dynamics of music business of nowadays, distribution, placement etc.

    I've worked with Marco on many projects and all the work has been stellar. On this production, I was hitting a creative block and asked Marco for some production/arrangement/mastering assistance and he made the song come alive. Super happy.

    I was not an easy client for Marco because I am very demanding but he knew how to stay professional until the end and made all the necessary changes to make my music sound perfect. I am very grateful because the result is beyond my expectations. I strongly recommend him, you can't be disappointed! Thanks again Marco for your patience and the time you put into this work.

    Marco is a multi-talented music producer, having the ability to improve not only your mixes and masters, but your overall productions. He's proficient, he's a really nice guy that can work quickly and can communicate clearly. Would definitely recommend his help with your productions.

Interview with Marco Donnarumma

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: My clients' productions here on Soundbetter but also my personal project music, I release a song every 3 weeks :) It's going pretty well getting a lot of support from other artists of my genre.

  3. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  4. A: I always ask if they have any preferences in term of sound. Choosing a reference track is a good move to understand each other in an objective way.

  5. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  6. A: Customers usually want to listen something I made in the genre they're asking for, if it's something I never had the chance to work with and I am sure I can do it I just tell them to check my feedbacks. I am not worried of accepting something I have never worked on in terms of genre. I am a very experienced listened first, so I always like to bush my personal boundaries.

  7. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  8. A: I usually work on all kind of electronic music.

  9. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  10. A: I am super organised and I like to have everything under control, my workflow can be methodic but at the same time I can be creative breaking the rules when needed.

  11. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  12. A: I bring to a song my 15 years of professional music production experience, that is refreshed every day with long listening sessions. In this way I know what the actual trends are and were and I can mix these with the artist needs.

  13. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  14. A: Full satisfaction, knowledge and results within deadlines :)

  15. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  16. A: Ghost Production and Mixing and Mastering

  17. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  18. A: Luca Pretolesi is one of the best mixing and mastering engineer ever. It's cool that he's on Soundbetter too!

  19. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  20. A: That I can't do anything else than electronic music. I work and listen to all kind of music.

  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: I produce music for 18 years. During this path I had the change to take care of all the music production related aspects, like making sample packs, presets, sound design, mix and master etc. I also have some skills in promotion and music business.

  23. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  24. A: Obviously my dream collab would be with Skrillex, he never miss a hit and he's so unique!

  25. Q: What's your typical work process?

  26. A: I do my best to start working on a track from scratch already having in mind what I wanna get and how. The idea has to be clear and effective since the very beginning of the session.

  27. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  28. A: A mixture of them. Analog is warmer and musical but digital is limitless.

  29. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  30. A: If you have a clear and precise idea of what you need, it will be a pleasure to work together. I used to work with reference track for my clients, but I can also involve my own ideas if you want to.

  31. Q: How would you describe your style?

  32. A: I can be fire, I can be water :)

  33. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  34. A: The main idea is the most important thing when producing a song, so make sure you have an effective and clear idea and lay it down very fast. Skills are useless if you are not saying anything new with your music.

  35. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  36. A: I like to make music. Even if I have to work on something I don't like, it's a good chance to learn something new and to wider my horizons.

  37. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  38. A: Other than myths, laptop and headphones are enough :)

  39. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  40. A: Skrillex is a very talented producer, he brought an underground genre of music to be mainstream, and now he cover a very wide range of genres, keeping his identity. That's the answer.
