I am a classically trained violinist and received a Bmus Hons from the RNCM. After this, I pursued my dream of becoming a mixer and music producer by studying at Berklee. I specialize in mixing and alternative electronic productions. To demonstrate this, you can listen to my new act 'ANIMA!' that has received over 95k downloads on iTunes.
Most of the work I do is mixing . I have mixed classical string quartets, electronic acts, RnB, country, folk, orchestral balancing for film and media, pop. My mantra is to increase the impact of your song through it's emotional energy.
If you are new to me, I will mix one of your songs and only if you like it, you pay. That way you have nothing to lose by trying me out. I assure you, you will be happy with what I can do for your music.
I have arranged and engineered strings for many artists too including Lana Del Rey.

5 ReviewsEndorse Vicente Espi
I greatly enjoyed working with Vicente. In particular, I appreciated his willingness in responding to individual notes on tweaks and changes. Mixing is a fine art and still something I'm learning about but Vicente helped me understand how to bring out the best in what was a characteristically 'busy' song. 5 stars!
An amazing violinist. It's a pleasure to work with this brilliant, professional and amazing violinist. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !
Vicente is a fantastic violinist. His amazing improvisational work on the new Casper Ace album gave an exiting edge to the songs. Vicente is a master at his craft and a great person to work with!
Excellent producer and a VERY experienced engineer. Vicente brings out the best in our artist rooster, sculpts them and their sound to create beautiful records with impact. His background as an accomplished musician makes his service invaluable!
Probably one of the most fine tuned ears I've ever had the pleasure to work with. It's simple: want someone that cares about sound AND artistry? Work with him.
Interview with Vicente Espi
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Literally all sorts.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I was trained as a classical violinist since I was five. I have a very discerning ear when it come to technical aspects. But that being said, my strongest skill is my heart. It drives a lot of my decisions which sometimes means leaving a notes out of tune because it more expressive that way. Leaving in the obnoxious buzz of a noisy single coil guitar because you feel like you are there in the room with the guitarist. These are the decisions a logical brain cannot make. It's all about balance, and that is what a pro mixer ought to be doing; balancing things.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Whatever a song needs. You don't want something technically to get in the way of your listening experience but at the same time, nobody I know wants to listen to something without any life. Emotions are our currency at the end of the day and that is what I spend the most time on; getting the artists emotions out to the listener.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: This is a really tough question as there are numerous music pro's that inspire me. To name just a few: Rick Ruben, Nigel Godrich, Serban Ghenea, Tony Maserati, Bob Ludwig, Alex Psaroudakis, FKA Twigs, Radiohead, Django Django, Tame Impala, Silvan Esso, tUnE yArDs, Gorillaz, Diplo, Major Lazer, Arca, Bjork...
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Definitely mixing, but a close second is being a producer. Because I produce a lot, it also gives me a greater insight into mixing and I offer production insights that can help increase the impact of clients works.
