Doug V on SoundBetter

Songwriter for Feid, Thalia, Jerry Di, Lyanno among others. I have now 5 years of experience into the Latin Music biz, but I'm related to music since I was 8 when I started playing piano. I'll make your ideas come to life with the very best of my lyrics and toplines.

I focus in the Latin Top 40 sound, specifically genres like Reggaeton, Pop and R&B.

・My strenght is writing and singing in spanish; but I’m also able to do the same in English (RnB and pop lyrics)

・The melodies I create are usually in the crossroads between RnB and Reggaeton

・Lyric-wise I can go from radio friendly pop to more explicit club oriented songs

・Always up to date with today's sound

・I only deliver once the project fulfills the expectations

I'm currently living and working in Medellin alongside the genre's top producers and songwriters. Indeed, my songwriting catalogue have been produced by multi-platinum beat makers, like Icon Music, RudeBoyz, Taiko, Magic, Noize El Nuevo Sonido, BeatDemons, DannyEBTracks, and the list goes on. I’ve also had the pleasure of working with mainstreams artists like Thalia, Feid, Manuel Turizo, Zion & Lennox, Piso 21, among others.

You can expect up-to-date songwriting and recording techniques when requesting my services, the same used by artists such as the ones named above.

Interview with Doug V

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Co-writing the track 13 for Feid's album "Ferxxo Vol.1: MOR" (El Cuarto de Ferxxo) has been so far my greatest experience as songwriter. That album was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award for Best Urban Music Album in 2020. Beside, we wrote the song in a Christmas Eve, which make it even more special for me.

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

  4. A: I started studying music as a classical pianist when I was 8. Then I switch to ballad-pop songwriting, and since 5 years ago I started working on reggaeton.

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

  6. A: Give me as much info as posible about the project, always being specific and clear about the needs and expectations.

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

  8. A: Huge artists like Bruno Mars, The Weeknd and Drake inspire me.

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

  10. A: Yeah, Clever. Best producer in town https://soundbetter.com/profiles/68330-clever---david-marquez

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

  12. A: My songwriting/singing portfolio

  13. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  14. A: Both

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

  16. A: The talented people I have the pleasure to meet and work with.

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

  18. A: "Can you make me a song that sounds like _____ ?" I answer: "I can, but it's better to be unique". You'll get more value if you let the ones creting be themselves.

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

  20. A: "It's just reggaeton/pop lyrics, thats easy!"

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

  22. A: Previous works, goals and needs.

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

  24. A: MIDI key, PC laptop, interface, headphones and a power plant haha

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: A hybrid beetwen rnb and reggaeton.

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

  28. A: Definitely Bruno Mars, he's one of the great talents of this generations and I like the fact that we both start the songs in the piano.

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

  30. A: Make a playlist of songs you like and study them to the core.

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

  32. A: Reggaeton, latin pop, dancehall / tropical, afrobeat and rnb in spanish, but I also write jazz for a hobby.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: Chords progressions and hooks.

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

  36. A: Musically, not matter the genre, I like to get great chords progressions taking influence from Jazz, RnB, and Soul. For the topline I have a special taste for pop melodies, and hip hop metrics. Lirycally, I focus on having a very defined thematic and good storytelling, also having a word selection that sounds nice to the ear, no matter the listener.

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

  38. A: Due to my academic music education, I like to start finding the harmony circle of the song in the piano. Then I create melody patterns or hooks, then I fill and structure with lyrics. Once the beat is done, I record the song with the performance I can.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I write home with just a laptop and some headphones but I record and have sessions in great studios with full setups.

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

  42. A: Songwriting, but I'm also in session because of my toplining and as a pianist

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

  44. A: Deliver the best possible song in the shortest possible time, with an unique but up to date style
