My style is your style. Let's bring out your authenticity.
I'm a producer, 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.

Interview with kuTso
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Music is always music
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
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.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is your style. i always try to bring out artist's authenticity.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, indie, rock, hip hop, synth pop, electro, funk, metal, etc.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: i always try to understand what the artist would like to "say" in a song, helping him/her to say it right.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
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.
