Hello! My name is Gianacrlo Castro (a.k.a. Kastropolis) and I am an electronic music producer and remixer.

I've been nurturing and mastering my skill for 7 years now and I am very fluent in using Ableton Live. Aside from collaborating with local artists and remixing popular hits, I have released my own solo EP on platforms such as iTunes and Spotify, as well as making commercial advertisements with established brands like Sena. I have also worked on projects creating music for video game concepts. I primarily produce electronic music but I also dabble with some hip-hop and pop. If you'd like to have a creative and captivating track from an experienced musician, I'm your guy!

Interview with Kastropolis

What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I promise to always give you the best quality to my ability. I'm passionate about what I do and want to make my clients happy :)
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Well I think it's necessary to take a chance in life every now and then because you never know what surprise you'll run into. Plus, my first track is FREE. What do you have to lose!
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
My career path has been and is still currently music production. I fell in love about 7 years ago when my buddy showed me FL Studio and haven't stopped since. Maybe down the line my passion will change, but this one is still strong!
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Anyone. I think it's important to take risks and explore every option out there.
Can you share one music production tip?
Hmmm... Always produce what YOU want. Don't try to make music like the hits that are out today, its not creative or unique. It's ok to be influenced by an artist (I'm constantly influenced!) but make sure it's your personality in the track and not someone else's.
What do you bring to a song?
I think my best attribute while recording is that I fully immerse myself in my work. When I'm producing it's just me and the music. I believe that's what brings quality to a track!
What's your typical work process?
It really depends. Sometimes I'll start by creating a drum loop, or I'll be inspired by a previous loop in my sound library. I also believe it's never a good thing to overstimulate yourself during production as you'll lose excitement for your work. You gotta move around and get your blood pumping!
Tell us about your studio setup.
I have a self-built PC with top-of-the-line specs, as well as Yamaha HS80M Reference Studio Speakers, an Audio-Technica Studio Headset, an AxiomPro-49 Keyboard, and a Fender Electric Guitar.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I grew up listening to a variety of music living in Orange County, CA. The artists that have piqued my interest in the past (and currently) range from Kaskade to the late J Dilla. My tastes are always evolving however and I think that helps keep my work unique and fresh!
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
The type of work I do for my clients vary on the artist. I'll occasionally get the type that aren't very sure on where they want to take their track, and so I'll assist them with my perspective. Others know exactly what they want and how they want it. It's all on how you want to approach it!
