I am a musician that's also a producer and a producer that's also a musician. I can compose any type of music for you and/or help you with your production and mixing needs.
I compose, record, mix and master a wide range of styles in my own studio in Madrid. I am a musician first, which means I care and know from that perspective how important this is for you.
I specialize mostly in pop and all its varieties, electronic and urban music, but I have worked in several kinds of projects with bands and artists, for TV, series and advertising, and I also release my own music.
You can visit my website (www.jorgeramosmusic.com) and Spotify profile (Jorge Ramos) and check a selection of projects I've worked on. Drop me a line and let me know about yours <3

Working with Jorge has been one of the best experiences I've had in my music trajectory. He is patient, listens and processes very well all my needs in terms of music production. He is also very good with lyrics, he knows how to integrate them into melodies very well. I've been very lucky to have worked with him and I look forward to working with him again in the future. Don't hesitate to hire him.
Interview with Jorge Ramos
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I produce using a blend of analog (Moog and Korg synths, Gretsch guitar, Fender P-bass...) and digital instruments and I mix and master in the box using software from brands like Waves, UA, Fabfilter, Output...
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I love analog and I love digital. In the end it all comes down to what can you do with the tools you have, and I would choose a nice mixture of both worlds.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I had never made a cumbia and recently was asked to make one for a scene in a Netflix series from Spain. I dug into it, studied the style and came up with a pretty decent piece in a couple of days.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I have some assignments from urban artists in Madrid. I'm producing and mixing.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm new here, haven't had a chance to browse arround yet, I'll fill this in when I do.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'll do my best to meet your needs. I won't take a job if I'm not sure that I can meet the client's requirements.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I enjoy music so much that sometimes I think that making a living out of it is like cheating.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: - Are you available? - Yes.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Some people think that some of the things I do are just pushing one button, but I don't think anybody in here is like that.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Do you have a clear idea of what you want? Do you have any reference?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Check the works that everyone has done.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, headphones, Apogee duet audio interface, Maschine MK3, Arturia Minilab MKII, all fitting in a backpack.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Drake and 6black. They can flow on a track like no one else.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Use saturation to bring out harmonics (in bass, vocals, 808, drums...) and a compressor in the mix bus to glue your session. In fact, try to start your mix from the mix bus and work backwards from there. Top-down mixing can help you achieve better results.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Electronic, pop, urban, soundtrack.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I am a good musician for being a producer/mixing enginner and a good producer/mixing engineer for being a musician.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Legendary mixing engineer Dave Pensado says primarily we sell our taste, not our gear or skills. I agree with that quote and focus on bringing taste to the table.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I dependes on the assignment. It all starts with talking to the client and making sure we are completely aligned, that's for sure.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: 6lack, Kanye West, Ryan Beatty, Drake, The Weeknd, Mike Dean, Alex Tumay, Mixed by Ali, Noah Shebib, Miles Davis, Sevdaliza, Col3trane, El Michels Affair...
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: From creating a exclusive song from scratch to producing, mixing and mastering.
