I offer a number of services: production, mixing, vocal production, recording, and songwriting. Through my many years of experience, I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the biggest artists in the world, across many genres, and have crafted a unique set of skills allowing me to approach your music differently.
Hello! I'm Emiliano Caballero, and I'm a music producer.
I started out my career at Galaxy Studios in Belgium, where I worked with artists like George McCrae or Clint Mansell.
In 2016 I moved to New York City to work as an assistant engineer at Electric Lady Studios, to work with Grammy Award winning artists such as Bon Jovi, Foy Vance, Elle King and Michael Kiwanuka.
Currently, I'm an independent music producer. Recent projects I've been involved in include mixing two songs (Tanto Tanto and Colores) for Paula Arenas, whom got a Latin Grammy Nomination as 'Best New Artist' 2017, recording Superior Drummer 3.0 and mixing-mastering N8N's latest releases.
While mixing, I’m drawing from my producer side, often adding or changing elements to enhance your record.
As a producer, I’m often pulling from my mixing skills to make sure the sounds are perfect and unique.
My goal is to bring your vision to life.
Besides my music production work, I'm one of the co-founders of the plugin company Leapwing Audio and a lecturer at the Abbey Road Institute.
