Mixing is my passion
As a music lover I've been obsessed for many years in offering professional grade work at accessible rates. There are tons of great music out there that needs to see the light and most of this great musicians can't afford the treatment their music deserves to shine the way is supposed to. There is nothing that makes my heart beat faster than being part of a project full of seriously committed musicians and great songwriters full of passion. I'm convinced that great music lies in the independent front waiting for a strike of luck to find exposure and I want to be part of it helping them with my work.
Como amante de la música he estado obsesionado durante muchos años en ofrecer trabajo de talla profesional a tarifas accesibles. Existe mucha música genial afuera que necesita salir a la luz y muchos de estos grandes músicos no pueden pagar el servicio necesario para hacer que su música brille como es debido. No hay nada que me emocione mas que ser parte de un proyecto lleno de músicos serios y comprometidos, y grandes compositores llenos de pasión. Estoy convencido que la verdadera música se encuentra en el frente independiente esperando un golpe de suerte para encontrar exposición y yo quiero ser parte de eso ayudándolos con mi trabajo.

I'm a music producer with many years of experience. Mixing is one of the things that I enjoy the most. I have mixed several professional big league artists but after working with Omar I'm never going to mix again. He has such an enormous talent that I'm putting my ego aside. I have found the mexican Serban Ghenea. No bull.....
It was a pleasure to work with Omar.The way he understands the needs and visions of their clients is something very hard to find these days.
Omar is a perfectionist but He is also an artist with tons of sensitivity and always worried about the details. On the technical side,Omar is always really updated of the trends in the music industry
As a musician, I can say that the best part to work with Omar is that he become on a member of the band, he totally cares to understand what are you trying to express and gives to you a different perspective of your idea, it's like a non-romantic view. But at the same time he gave us confidence and patience to make the best version of our single.

A: Production wise i hear the whole band idea for the record and as a project. Listen to their dreams, fears, motivations, etc. Sitdown make the most killer demo ever and when everything seems to fit in the right place start the tracking process and push the band as far as possible sonic and arrangement wise.

I produced, tracked, mixed and mastered the project
