Refugee on SoundBetter

Pop producer specializing in TODAY's Top 40 music. #2 in Bolivia, #39 México, #3 Perú.

Hey!
If you are a singer/songwriter/producer I'll be happy to make your dream song come alive!

I've been in Mexico's Top 40 charts and I've peaked at #2 in Bolivia.
At the end of the day, all I care about is how good the music is.
I have a big standard of how I want my tracks to sound like, and I'm also a perfectionist.

I love making catchy tunes and earworm hooks that stay with you for a while.
My music is fresh and has the sound of 2018.
My main goal is to create music that transcends.

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.

I love doing weird and unique sounds, and one of my biggest strengths are my vocal chops.

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.

    I trust Refugee with pretty much all aspects of my music, from
    serious production to melodic co - writing and last but not least his mixing/ master finesse. One stop shop if you ask me..
