    Toño is a legend and a very wise Producer! I've worked with Toño on several projects. On the first one we produced an album of a band project called Angele Phase which won several awards and got several sync placements + got the band to warm up for Depeche Mode - Tour of the Universe. I was lucky to assist him on a recording session at Abbey Road - Studio 2 for a band production project of Clásico Latino in 2012. We've since landed several recording and production projects as well as some sync / licensing placements.

    Toño knew exactly what my tracks needed for a dynamic, vintage retro-rock sound. His experience shines through. Great to work with, a true legend.

    Toño is a world class producer. I highly recommend his expertise on any recording project in need of an experienced producer with a musical magic touch. He is truly excellent...
