He podido trabajar en varios producciones con Nicolas, y es tremendo sonidista y artista. Mucho concepto y visión, siempre en el bien de la canción y resultado final.
Además un excelente trato con el artista/cliente, siempre con paciencia y disposición a cumplir la visión del productor, compositor o músico.
Nico is the fucking deal!, As an international project, Soul Du Monde needed a skilled producer to fullfil both electronic and rock mixing and production requirements, and he just nailed it!
