Mixing is more than a passion or a job. It's a form of art.
Every mix here has special treatment either you're an independent artist or a major label. If my name's there, then I've done the best I can as my mentor Manny Marroquin taught me. That's why it gets stamped "Mixed by VT".
Could say I've been in the music biz for more than 15 years and say I've worked with James, Tiago Bettencourt, Filipe Gonçalves, this year's Eurovision winner, Salvador Sobral either working behind the desk, or producing or playing guitar, but here it's all about the mix.
I approach the songs that are given to me with the passion and the drive the artist has. The goal is to compliment your vision and take it up a notch.
I work worldwide. Now, enough of chit chat and let's make music!
