"I help other musical creators to professionally shape and present to the world the gift that God has given them"
Hi! My name is Josué Castellano (ETZETERA PRODUCTIONS). I'm a Spanish Music Producer.
25 years ago I fell in love with music and what it transmits, I started to compose and produce my own songs and the flame has continued to burn within me all this time. Now I'm helping independent artists to achieve a professional sound for those songs in which they put all their passion, illusion, and love.
If you are a musician or singer and you want to share your songs with the world, you want to impact your audience with a powerful and defined sound that is really at the level of commercial productions, I can help you sound like you really want by offering you my services of Online mixing and mastering.
And it is that, if you want to publish your songs, it is not enough that you have talent and a great repertoire. You must sound spectacular and for me, it will be a pleasure to accompany you in that process.
How can I help you:
- Mix & Mastering
- Beats (Pop-Rock / Pop-Punk / Alternative Rock / Grunge / Hip-Hop)
- Instrumental Arrangements

Josué helped us with a remake of a song we lost. We sent him a crappy mp3 and he managed to send us the whole song in MIDI tracks and he also gave us some advice about the tracking and final composition. I strongly recommend working with him.

Muy contenta con el resultado.

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Myself, I have always wanted to dedicate myself to music, to be able to work, and give myself 100% in something that I really love and am passionate about. Since I was 14 years old and I met bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Green Day, RHCP… I fell in love with music and what it transmits. I began to play the guitar, then other instruments, to compose my own songs and produce them, all in a self-taught way; putting a lot of passion, time, and energy, but without any strategy. I got married 15 years ago, we have 7 children and we live in Kaliningrad (Russia); and in this time I have been on the verge of completely leaving music for not seeing a future for it and thinking that it was a past dream of youth. But the flame was still on, I kept composing, playing, learning, and working until late at night. As a hobby because it is something that I love, but without results. Until I found the Mixing Master with Soma, the producer with whom I have been training and who is helping me take off in my music business.
