Award winning composer, producer and mixing engineer - I will dedicate myself fully to each individual project. From M83 and Placebo, to up and coming small bands, I put my heart and soul into the work! Wide sonic spectrum and clear, punchy transients is the name of the game. Let's work together on your music and take it to the next level!
I've been a musician all of my life, and have always been curious to the point of being obsessive. I was fortunate to grow up in a musical household, which sparked my interest in exploring music professionally. Piano, guitar and drums are the main instruments I've played throughout my life, later moving into the recording studio environment. I opened my first recording studio, Fatman Studios, in 2009 and it became a beacon for the independent music scene in Mexico during the 2010's. Over the last year I've worked out of Chapel Studios, mixing, remixing, and producing with bands and artists that I love and respect - from major label credits, to small new projects, it's all the same to me!
From the composition side, I love deep ambient sounds and creating vast spaces through the use of effects. I wills spend hours finding and tweaking sounds that add life to a song. From the production and mixing side, I love taking songs and re-working them, or just taking songs to the next level through mixes that are full of character and punch. I work in a hybrid setup, mixing from a DAW into analog gear and summing into an analog Neve console.

Jerry was a real pleasure to work with - in his first mix he brought out some beautiful dream pop elements of the song which set it up for just a couple of minor revisions from there. Jerry had a clear vision for where he thought the song could go and dived in and brought it to life.
Jerry had good communication and fast turnaround times throughout the project and took feedback and suggestions really well. I'd be happy to recommend Jerry and work with him again in the future. Cheers :)
Wow, Jeromino brought my song to life. Amazing mixing engineer, very professional and extremely skillful. Communication is excellent. He knows exactly what to do to make your music shine. I would love to work with him again. A true master, I recommend Jeronimo with high regards. Cheers :)
Working with Jerry was a real pleasure. I sent him a very busy mix with lots of tracks to balance and some serious cleaning required. He polished everything up really professionally. The first draft was a tight, crisp, modern mix, but wasn't necessarily the sound I was looking for. Jerry listened to all of my notes, and came back with something that was literally bang on. Even after subsequent revisions, which he was happy to do, we ended up settling on that first revision. Great guy as well!
Jeronimo is a fantastic collaborator and an all round great guy! He's a wonderful top-tier mixing engineer of course, but his willingness to go above and beyond to make your music the best it can be - by understanding your music rather than just working on it - sets him apart. Whole-heartedly recommend! I hope we can work together in the near future!
Jeronimo understood perfectly where I wanted to go with the songs and delivered exactly what I was imaging should be happening... it's really a magical thing. Excellent mixes!
Jeronimo was great! Excellent communication, very humble, and most of all, enthusiastic about the work. He made sure I was happy with the song throughout the process and stayed in touch every step of the way. Highly recommend.
Jeronimo is the real deal. A superb communicator, he aimed to understand my music on as deep a level possible. He has the unique quality of being a skilled mix engineer AND a talented songwriter. As a songwriter, he gets the importance of how a song can make you feel and used this approach to distinguish himself from other engineers I've worked with. He managed to give my music space and atmosphere while maintaining clarity and punch. I look forward to working with him again on future projects.
When I finish a song, I don't have to worry about who I can trust to give my work the attention and care I feel it deserves. After meeting and working with Jerry a few months back, it was a no-brainer to return to him with my latest song. Jerry is thoughtful, talented, and a great person. I can't thank him enough for helping me bring my music to life. Needless to say, Jerry is THE guy I go to when I need a brilliant mix!
I got my first professional shot working with Jerry at Fatman Studios. From day one we clicked and created a unique and amazing project.
People with such intelligence and will to listen are very hard to find. Excellent taste in music, sound and gear! Extremely dedicated and passionate.
