My name is Alexandre Favilla. I'm composer, singer, bassist, guitarist, and mainly, producer. I work with music since 1998 and have composed, recorded and produced artists in Brazil since then. I'm specialized in Electronic Based Music genres like Bass Music, Brazilian Funk and New Disco/Pop Funk. Also do soundtrack for movies and games.
I'm a music producer and also a musician. It means that, very often, I can also record the instruments like bass, guitar, keys and drums. Sometimes, an artist only have a melody to work with. So, i make the arrangements, record the instruments (in case there's no musician of the band to work with), mix and master without any problems.
I also have a great catalog of singers that can sing in english ,french, spanish and portuguese, great drummers, guitarists, keyboard players, brass players, bassists etc. Just tell me what do you need and I can show you all the options.
The main genres I've worked with in all those years are Pop, Rock (Indie Rock to be precise), Electronic Dance music (Bass Music, Electro House, Dubstep, Future Bass, Trap). Also did Jazz/Fusion/Funk and instrumental music in my background as player and arranger.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
