kuTso on SoundBetter

My style is your style. Let's bring out your authenticity.

I'm a producer, sound egineer, composer, pro singer and drummer based in Rome (Italy) where i own my recording studio, called kuTso Noise Home.
i'm specialized in working with artists to create easylistening structures for singles, discussing with them about the right "dress" for their songs, listening to references and then working hard, recording real instruments and/or creating electro beats. If needed, I take care of the whole creative and productive process from pre-production, to recording, mixing and mastering with high-end machines.
check my production playlist "prodz" on my spotify profile ( kuTso), where you can find some productions i recently worked on.

    Matteo is a great producer, musician and a unique singer. Working with him was an extraordinary experience, he never stops creating. Open minded to all the music genres, he can really listen to the artists he's working with, giving them emotional advices and vocal coaching.
    He has a fool inventiveness, always finds a way to create different and original sounds!

    Matteo is the leader of my favorite band Kutso, an extraordinary singer, musician and producer. Working with him is an experience that makes you grow artistically and as a person.

    I had a great experience working with Matteo on my recordings! Not only he's a capable producer, but he also has great ideas to improve your songs based on his great experience and music culture. I strongly recommend his studio to everyone

    Matteo is not only a producer but also a great drummer, a great singer, a great coach and a fucking madman. I was born thanks to him and I will always be grateful to him. I would recommend it to the whole world.

    Va bene grazie, te la reinvio con una integrazione:

    Matteo Gabbianelli is not just a producer. I worked with him on my dreampop singles and on my first EP. He’s a perfectionist who loves what he does. He’s meticolous and attentive to the needs and the ideas of the clients.
    His wide knowledge of different musical generes allows him to be kaleidoscopic, accurate and creative.
    Passion and high competence are the strenghts that put him on a different level and make him a 360º professionist.

    Matteo is a great producer, I worked with him and together we made 2 album and 3 singles.
    Very professional, expert and awesome!

    Now we're writing a new album and he has many ideas, the sound of this project is very good! I think that we'll work together again!

    Matteo Gabbianelli made the prodz and the beats of four songs for me, with efficiency and perseverance. He paid attention to every detail, starting from getting closer to me and understanding my own ideas for the songs. I recommend him because he always wants to make the best thing ever and support the artist whom follows. He also engineered, recorded voice tracks, mixed and mastered the songs.

    by Alessandro Santori for L'IRA DEL BACCANO

    As producer of my band L'IRA DEL BACCANO i've worked 2 times in studio with Matteo. The conjunction between high level equipment,top notch technical skills and artistic sensibility left me both times 100% satisfied with the results. When you are both the musician and the producer of your own music you find yourself in a struggle between these two parts...then you need someone to trust and Matteo was the perfect choice. As residential recording studio in Rome i would highly recommend Kutso Noise Home and Matteo Gabbianelli no matter the genre of music you need to record.

    We met Matteo two years ago, when we were looking for a good recording studio in Rome: since then, he started to work with us as an artistic producer. We made 8 Alternative Hip Hop tracks together and Matteo brought all his experience as a musician and as a producer. He helped us bringing out the best of each song, both in arrangement and recording sessions.

Interview with kuTso

  1. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  2. A: I started producing music in 2003, especially hardcore punk and rock. but i've always written my own poprock songs too. I equally kept producing artists and writing songs untill 2015, when my carrer as a singer and composer was boosted by my attendance to the most famous Festival in Italy called Festival di Sanremo, where i had a great mediatic exposure with my band "kuTso", so i slowed down in studio for three years due to the tours and the commitments. Actually I've never really stopped my producing activity, but i started working hard in studio again since 2018, producing tens of young italian indie artists.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Music is always music

  5. Q: How would you describe your style?

  6. A: My style is your style. i always try to bring out artist's authenticity.

  7. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  8. A: Pop, indie, rock, hip hop, synth pop, electro, funk, metal, etc.

  9. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  10. A: i always try to understand what the artist would like to "say" in a song, helping him/her to say it right.

  11. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  12. A: regardless of the genre, i try to eliminate any weakness from the song, leading the listener straight to the point without boring him/her.
