- I have 15 years of music knowledge and production experience - Recently scored a film called "Clout" which is being released at Sundance Film Festival and SXSW 2020 - I primarily specialize in music production of instrumentals but my skillset is not limited to that - I have worked with clients spanning 18% of the countries on the planet
- I’m a multi-genre music producer that has been making music for the last 15 years. I started with classical instrument training, which lasted almost seven years. There I learned tons of music theory and composition. I then transitioned my skills into more modern music production with primarily Rap/Hip-Hop/Trap/Pop/World music. My background allows my music capabilities to adapt to many different styles.
- I’ve also been a voice over artist for nearly five years primarily working with adverts/youtube/podcast shows.
- My experience across genres has also given me a good ear for modern day music and trends moving forward.
- I’m able to hear the slightest discrepancies in audio and I do well with mixing and editing.
- I’m very proficient in Logic Pro X and that is my main DAW. I’m well versed in modern
technology and learning new technology is no problem.
- I’ve completed over 300 individual music production projects since Spring of 2018 that
range from recording artists, podcasts, film, video games, and even voice acting. Including
clients from 18% of the countries in the world.
- Years of music theory has also allowed me to match audio to the right moods in film/video

Interview with Lucciago
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I'm primarily working on ghost productions for other artists as well as podcast intros/outros and editing, as well as voice acting.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Murda Beatz is a music producer I relate to a lot.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: M-Audio Midi Keyboard Maschine MPK KRK Rokit 5's
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I generally start with producing the melody and follow it up with drums/percussion but the flow is always different based on the project requirements.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring exactly or as close to what the client asks for in an instrumental production. Coming from classical composition, that's how I approach songs with buildups/hooks/verses etc.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Multi genre music production of instrumentals
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: It's primarily Rap/HipHop/Lofi/Trap/Electronic/Soundscapes/World music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: It's really easy to overthink or "over-do" an instrumental to the point where it doesn't sound any good. Sometimes less is more.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is modern but also forward thinking. I always have fresh ideas at hand.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been making music and following that path for nearly 15 years.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: That's all I need to record/produce/mix/master so I'm good!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: It's best to understand that music is subjective and should be listened to as such. Not all music translates the way you think it should and some things you hear in music aren't the actual sound you think they are. It's best to listen to the professional advice of your producer or audio engineer blended with your vision. Creating music is never a one way street.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I generally ask them to provide audio references because just using words to describe what you want usually doesn't cut it.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Top to bottom how music is made. Most people don't understand what really goes into creating these sounds and it can get extremely technical. Once again it's always best to listen to the professional advice of your producer.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: They generally ask if it's okay to use these sounds commercially or if they're royalty free etc. I plan on taking no credit for the productions I make for a client. They should understand sampling is a very common part of even original productions and that any sampling used will always be royalty free.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Creating music is all I need. If I can do that all day every day then I made it.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'll always work with you on making sure you leave happy to the best of my ability. I tend to go the extra mile regardless of the amount of money involved.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both have their benefits for various reasons but I personally don't have a preference.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Personally no.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm currently working on sync music for film/tv as well as productions for record labels and independent artists.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Scoring the film "Clout" was a lot of fun as it was a movie regarding artists trying to make a name for themselves and I can relate to that.
