2 Times winner of International Awards: MBN Award in Ecuador for Best Music Production and Latin Chicago Awards in the US, nominated more than 8 times in other awards. My Productions total more than 16 million Streams on YouTube and Spotify, I am a voting member of Latin Grammy. I've produced around 500 songs in 15 years of professional working.
In my 15 years in the professional music industry I have worked with world-renowned artists and brands such as Alejandro Lerner, Charly Garcia, Budweiser, Coca-Cola but what I enjoy most is seeing how an independent artist achieves success in their career.
I have achieved, on many occasions, that unknown artists could win international awards and being nominated for the most important awards in the industry, also that since their first single they reach millions of streaming on YouTube, Spotify and also increasing their followers.
I like to advise the artist before and after working with me, because success is built by giving the best in all stages of the project.
I have a company that performs premium Masterclass throughout Latin America and this has led me to work alongside great engineers such as Geoff Emerick, Sylvia Massy, Michael Brauer and Chris Lord-Alge.
Your music deserves to be valued and respected no matter what career you have as an artist.
You can be a great artist and I'm going to do my best to make it happen.

Martín is a great music producer. We were able to put together an album of 6 incredible songs. The result was vastly better than we expected.
I recommend Martín for any musical project, since he is very versatile and masters various styles.
Un "profesional y completo productor". Hace ya aproximadamente unos 8 años que en SNS comenzamos a trabajar nuestras producciones con Martin Kano, realizamos 2 y vamos por una tercera. Con su ayuda hemos pisado y grabado en estudios como Romaphonic (Arg) Ocean Way (Nashville) Estudios 0618 (Arg) entre otros. Recomiendo trabajar con Martin por su profesionalidad, buen oído y creatividad para la edicion, hace sonar tus voces de lujo e increíbles! Si querés dar un salto de calidad en la industria musical, contactálo !!
A great professional and a very kind person, his sound in the mix and master is what you are looking for for first-class productions. Besides being a great producer, highly recommended.
I strongly recommend Martin for Producing, mixing and mastering sevices! This guy is doopee! Beyond being such a nice guy to work with, his experience and musical skills really made the diference. I also wanted him to remix and master 3 of my songs as I didn't like the result with the first engineer that mixed it before him. The difference is like night and day! You won't regret!

It was on his first visit to Argentina where he came to give his masterclass, we recorded and mixed a song by Alejandro Lerner, which was previously produced by me and with Charly Garcia as a special guest. It was a dream come true. I've had the honor to be the only producer in South America in working with him, RIP.

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For mixing work, I usually ask what the client is looking for, I usually ask for 2 or 3 references to know where they want to direct the audio and I get to work on it. For the musical productions that I do online, The client sends me the song that he wants me to produce, it can be recorded only the voice, or with some instrument. He also sends me one or 2 references from other artists to know where he wants to take his music. Based on this, with my musical production team we make a demo to show how the song would look with our artistic vision.

A: Geoff Emerick, Sylvia Massy, Chris Lord-Alge, Michael Brauer. I was lucky enough to be able to work with them when they visited Argentina.
