Hello, my name is Iago Blanco. I opened Drum&Roll Studios back in 2010 before years of freelance working in many studios and projects. Here is where I've been working as producer and mixer since, discovering great bands and helping them to find an own sound that defines them, wich makes me get fully involved on each project I work on.
I mainly work as producer and mixer, and that's what I set up the studio for. As everybody else, I started working with local bands, trying to know me, my gear, and building a personal style and philosophy that bands could trust. And it worked! Many of the bands I worked with started to get some recognition all over Spain, touring and even winning awards.
All of that took me to participate on 2013 on the MWTM program with Michael Brauer, changing my way of mixing and being now more focused about the emotion each artist is trying to transmit.
I worked with different kind of projects, from heavy metal to pop, but even being a "rock guy" for many years, I'm finding a lot of connection with songwriters as they seem to like very much my style and way of working. In less than a year, I triplicated the songs I'm producing.
I love making music, meeting musicians and learn from them, from the begining of the process to the end. That's what I think made me grow all this years and keep musicians trusting my work from one album to the next one.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Reviews of Iago Blanco(Drum&Roll Studios)
Great experience to work with Iago Blanco. He really gets involved with the songs, usually coming with new ideas, and he racks his brain to refine even the smallest details. Also it's great that he spends all the time needed to get the expected result.
