Refugee on SoundBetter

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 work in my own home studio all week, but I also visit professional studios from time to time in which I create tracks and songs with different songwriters and producers.
For me, the most important thing is music. I have worked with big producers in the past so I have a big standard of how I want my tracks to sound like.

I love making catchy tunes and earworm hooks that stay with you for a while.
I'm very up to date in the industry, I enjoy making new music that sounds fresh. I'm also very versatile and I always work on whatever feels good, no matter the genre it is.
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.

  5. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
