It's always a pleasure to work with Gabriel. I can always count on him to deliver an amazing outcome with my tracks. It's incredibly difficult to find someone that gets your work. He gets it.
I had a great experience working with Gabriel again. Everything was completed with perfect timing & excellent quality.
I have worked with Gabriel recording my band WAHALA in Venezuela, and his level of professionalism and musicality are in very high standards. I would highly recommend working with him in the future.
I'm looking forward to having the rest of my work mastered by Gabriel. Great experience!
I have worked with Gabriel since 2.000 and his abilities for recording, mixing and producing are outstanding.
He can record and mix different music genres such as latin salsa, EDM and rock in a unique way.
