I want to make your music big, loud & proud. From crushing breakdowns to soul fulfilling ballads, let's make magic.
I'm a South-East London born Music Producer with a speciality in Alternative Metal music. I love and work on all genres however, from Pop Rock ballads to Indie bangers. My speciality is a big sound. I like the music to completely overcome you, with loud driving drums, soaring vocals and killer guitars.
I can be as hands on or hands off in a recording process as the artist pleases. Having worked with bands and solo artists in the past, I've learnt all people respond differently to a producers opinion. If you want a producers thoughts on your song structure, I'm there, if you just want me to make your song loud enough for the radio, I'm there. I can be your guy.
The music is about you, I'm just here to help you find the music that expresses you clearly.

Interview with Venzetti Productions
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Remote Mixing of full tracks that have been recorded with the bands chosen recording engineer.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Joey Sturgis has to be up there, with the way that he defined a genre for better or worse. Musicians such as Casey, Hotel Books and, Drop Dead, Gorgeous inspire my writing styles.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: A humble setup in my home studio with a room I can trust the acoustics of. I mix in the box mostly.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When mixing a song I like to use the "ground up" approach. This consists of starting with just drums, then onto bass, then onto guitars, synths or strings (or any other "production based sounds" such as bass drops and risers) and finally ending on the vocals. This approach allows me to make a mix that feels like it's glued together nicely, with everything being moulded on top of the foundation the previous layers provide.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to bring a big sound to any song I work on. Dynamics are the golden rule of exciting and catchy music and I find ways to bring dynamics to any and all songs.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is my craving to give you the exact sound you want. Trust me when I say, if you come to me, I'm your biggest fan.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Alternative Rock/Metal, mostly Post Hardcore sounding bands.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If your drums and bass suck, your song sucks. Concentrate on them. You could have the best guitar tones, the most mind shattering melodies, but if you don't have a drum kit and bass that sits together perfectly, your song will sound weak.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Hotel Books, he has a unique style of music and I'd love the chance to watch him work and to help him develop a sound.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Loud & Proud.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been mixing and mastering for over 10 years at a local level. Working on my own music since I was 14.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A Soundcraft Signature 22 Analogue mixing Console to use as a raft, a Telecaster to use as a boat oar, an acoustic Fender to catch water, some gaffer tape and, a Neumann U87, just for when I make it back to land suckers.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Provide me with any and all information I ask for, I'm not asking for no reason!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What "vibe" are you going for? Send me 3 people you take influence from.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Just because I mix in the box, doesn't mean I don't use and enjoy outboard gear. It just means I don't need to everytime I mix.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "Can we get this for free? We'll give you a lot of exposure" No, I need to eat.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Believe it or not, the music. Turning a song from a piece of coal into a diamond and really just falling in love with the song as it progresses. I know I've done my job right if by the end of the mixing I'm nodding along.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to always send you a first draft that I as the producer am happy with. The reason I take two days to send a track back is so that I can have a nights sleep gap to then come back to your song with fresh ears. Most mixers will one session and send it out. I want to make sure I'm happy with the first draft.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital is the way forward, analog is the time forged proven father. Digital shall inherit what analog has crafted and improve on it.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm new to the service!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My own music, developing styles that I've never tried. I wrote a Pop song the other week!
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My bands 2 Track EP "Young & Melancholy" I recorded the whole thing, mixed the whole thing, mastered the whole thing, hell I'm even the one that put it on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon and every other store online. I think I really nailed those mixes, and they came out exactly how I wanted.
