Jules is a record producer and mixing engineer from Paris, France. He specializes in modern indie pop/rock productions. After having managed a mid-size recording studio in the heart of Paris for the last 5 years (Studio Stakato), Jules has relocated to Highland Park in LA, and is now operating from his brand new studio space.
Born and raised by a musician dad, Jules grew up in a recording studio, surrounded by music, where he learned to play several instruments and got to meet many talented artists.
After he became a professional in the music industry, he evolved from being a touring musician for successful bands in Europe (The Teenagers, Second Sex, Au Bonheur des Dames..), to a trained recording and mixing engineer.
Having done both he claims that his strongest skill is understanding the music in all different aspects, "from the very first sparks of creation to the technicality of the finished product".
Back in Paris Jules was managing his own recording studio (studio Stakato), and he recently moved to Los Angeles to expand his activities and meet American musicians, who always inspired him. Among Jules' favorite mixers are Tchad Blake, Rich Costey, Nigel Godrich and Andy Wallace.

Reviews of Jules de Gasperis
I worked 5 days with Jules for mixing 3 songs in Paris (France) of my last album "The bright light". It was a real pleasure to meet an intelligent engineer who understood the project very quickly. He is always motivated and don't hesitate to propose many solutions at any moment. His ears are in good health and i wish him a long way with his faders.
Jules is very intuitive, & a LISTENER. He immediately understood our music&the sound we were going for&had great ideas on how to enhance the songs. I was really blown away by how knowledgeable he is. He brings out the best in your songs, and makes it easy&fun! Great communication through the whole process&open to any ideas//concerns I had.
Jules is not only extraordinarily savvy in his technical knowledge of mixing but his musicality is what truly sets him apart! He is passionate about sound and music, and has a breadth of good taste that applies impeccably to modern music. He listened to my ideas and enhanced them. Plenty of great ideas, I won't be mixing with anyone else.
I worked with Jules on my EP and am extremely happy with the results. He quickly interpreted my targets and influences, despite them being out of his usual range and delivered something that really matched what I was looking for. He brings an awesome balance of efficiency, receptiveness, and musicality that makes him great to work with.
I worked with Jules on a complete album during one year in Paris. It was a great experience. He is a top musician and composer, very patient, and he has a real sense of adaptability. His advice and relevant ideas were key to the success of my project and he created a perfect harmony in it with a suitable and amazing high quality mix.
Great experience of mixing with Jules! He precisely gets what you need for a song, asking the right questions at the right moment. Jules cares about what you feel and what you mean. He's as creative as professionnal and simply reveals the beauty of a song: once it has been mixed by Jules, you hear little thing and re-discover your own piece of work
Jules is a very versatile resourceful professional, who has got an innate talent for producing and mixing. He's got an amazing ear and impeccable taste, on top of being a delightful person. He's open minded and technically quite impressive too. He is an amazing person to spend long mixing hours with! I'm really happy i trusted him with my record.
Jules is awesome. His stronger point is that he is also a composer, musician, singer and that he immediately gets the essence of the song. It is such a pleasure to dig and talk music with him to make sure we go in the right direction. He works really fast and well, the mixes sound great, and he knows his tools perfectly. He's got a excellent ear !
