I am a music producer from Spain who makes edm, dance, and pop music. My songs have gathered over half a million streams and have been released in recognizable labels such as Strange Fruits. The goal here is for me to create the best productions I can deliver to artists in order to help their careers.
As a producer I am specialized in electronic dance music, although my experience allows me to make other genres such as pop or hip hop. Over the last few years I have built my own artist career and have collaborated with established artists such as Sarah de Warren or Big Z, which allowed me to pursue my music making passion,
I can produce a song from start to finish, help you finish your production, or mix your project. I am a professional organized person who takes each project with the best attitude possible.

Interview with Santi Villabriga
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Working on my track "We Can Do Better" was a huge achievement for me, as it was a collaboration with an artist named Big Z who I look up to and it was released on one of my favourite labels called Strange Fruits. I enjoyed the hole process since the song started until it was released.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am currently working on my artist project, collaborating with other artists, and finishing my masters degree in music management.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I would recommend Denny White or Dan Berk if you are looking for a vocalist that can complement your productions. They can write a topline from scratch or sing whatever you propose. I have worked with them myself and they are definitely good professionals who get the job done.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I have always worked with digital as it is easier to own and is also cheaper. Whenever I go to studios who own analog gear it feels really cool to use, but to me it doesnt sound better than what you can achieve with digital.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is the delivery of a professional sounding song.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Making music is my passion and what I love to do, and being able to call this my job is something I'm really proud of. Moreover, working with different artists from all over the world is definitely a highlight for me.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: One of the most common question is if I can make something similar to a reference song I get send or if I can sound like a specific artist. To me this works great because I always ask for reference songs anyways.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That there is no talent and is just pressing buttons.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I mainly ask for a description of the project, reference tracks, and deadline.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I would recommend to select a few providers you like and then comparing their prices, stats, and so on to choose the best fit for you.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: It would be my laptop, KRK speakers, phone, airpods, and audio interface.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started making music 7 years ago but started to take it seriously 4 years ago. I moved to London after graduating high school in order to study production and develop my skills. In the meantime I attended music events such as ADE which came real handy to network with other artists and worked hard on my artist career.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe it as uplifting and "feel good" music.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to work with Oliver Heldens because he is one of the reasons I decided to start making dance music, and it would be a huge personal and professional achievement to work together.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: My biggest tip would be to choose each sound you add to your production carefully and make sure your overall volume balance is right. Once I started to balance correctly all my sounds before adding any effects to them, my whole music started to instantly sound better.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on electronic dance music and genres such as Pop, House, or Future Bass.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Definitely composition and songwriting.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring quality and professionalism. I'm a perfectionist with my sound and always try to use the best samples and instruments for each project.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: This really depends on the specific project, but I always ask for a reference song and if I'm making a track from scratch I would usually start by layering some chords and developing an arrangement.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in my home studio, which consists on a HP Omen laptop, KRK rokit 5 speakers, Beyerdynamic dt 990 headphones, focusrite scarlett interface, and some acoustic panels to treat the room.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Some artists that inspire me would be Oliver Heldens, Marshmello, Big Z, or Illenium.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: My main expertise are in music production. This can vary from making a full instrumental/beat from scratch or finish an already started project.
