I'm a 20 years old music producer from Rome, Italy.
I started making music at the age of 14.

At the end of that year i started my own recording studio in Rome where i've been working 25 hours a week for one year.
Then in May 2016 i went to London to improve my skills about sound engineering and music production, studying for a month at London Academy of Music Production.
My plans are to come to Los Angeles around september to study music.

My productions on YouTube have an amount or around 1.500.000 views.

Interview with Jeremy Buxton

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Well, i always use to be critic bout myself, so there is no much things i'm really PROUD to have been working on. But when i was 18 i produced an EP with my rapper friend Bucha, and i think that is a good product even if its more rap than pop (for the productions, i think the sound isnt the best though).

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I'm working on myself. I wanna be competitive with the rest of the world, thats why i never get satisfied of my sound, i ALWAYS look for something better.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Not really yet.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Well i dont have analog hardware because i'm not really based in the city where i have the studio, i like to travel and to study. Thats why i say digital. By the way, analog has that something much.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: You will be fully satisfied. If you don't like the product there will be no problem to work on another one, but after a while you will probably understand that what i did was great.
