I've helped lots of artists by mixing my creativity and my production skills in EDM to create great sounding songs!
I will give your track all the time it needs, plus my suggestions and ideas to create the best music possible!

I live in Monterrey, México. I speak fluid English and I'm used to working with people in other timezones: India, Ukraine, L.A., Canada, USA, South Africa...

I have a lot of experience in the electronic dance music (EDM) scene. I'm very good in mainstream music but also in unique sounds like future bass, trap, moombah.

I have an audio interface and a mic in my home studio in which I have recorded electric guitars, acoustic guitars, and vocals many times.
For me, the most important thing is the music. I am used to working as a ghost or as a producer for vocalists/bands. I love melodic music and I'm always trying to innovate.
My main goal is to create music that transcends.
You choose however you want the song.
If you have an idea for a song and truly believe in it, I will make my best to make it happen. I will give the track the attention it needs and my professional suggestions and overview for the track. If you hire me then I will have a responsibility for making the best track possible.

Interview with Refugee

Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A 40+ hour edm song called ''About the Love''. I loved it because arturo isn't really a singer.
Analog or digital and why?
Both <3
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I won't stop until they're 100% happy with there song :)
What do you like most about your job?
To see the birth of so many songs :')
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
I never go into personal stuff!, only like which artists/songs style do you want to build this track from, if you want a hybrid cool! :D Also some other music related questions that could come in the way.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Try to get the main idea of the song in your head, I will do the rest
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Laptop, Headphones, Monitor, Mic and Midi keyboard
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
4 years since I stepped to EDM, but Ive been doing music my whole life
How would you describe your style?
Normally I love seeing the crowd dance, so I guess that my style can go between something really emotional to something that can make people dance :)
What type of music do you usually work on?
EDM, Dancehall (Major Lazer/ DJ Snake style), Trap, Pop, and all kinds of house
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Instrumentals and finished songs
What are you working on at the moment?
Some music stuff
What's your strongest skill?
All I care about is a good finishedproduct, not the fame. Also I am good at recreating sounds.
What do you bring to a song?
Life. My goal is to make the idea of my clients a real finished song so that they are 100% happy with it.
What's your typical work process?
First I get the idea, that's a natural process. Then I get the basic project going in which I experiment and make my own original sounds. After that its just perseverance and patience to don't lose faith in the project. Finally sometimes I ask for some feedback to my non-producer friends so that I can have an honest opinion.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Clean Bandit, Major Lazer, Jack Ü, Flume and Disclosure.
