Marco Donnarumma on SoundBetter

Producer, engineer and sound designer with over 15 years of experience in electronic music production. Credits include Universal Music, Monstercat, Never Say Die, One Love etc. featured on spotify editorial playlists, getting millions of streams across the platforms.

My productions got played at big festivals by big names like Alison Wonderland, Jauz, Zeds Dead, Excision, Flux Pavilion, David Guetta, Afrojack, Zomboy etc.
After years of experience in studio, I work full time with music production and all its related aspects. My strengths are in electronic music, but more specifically in bass music: so future bass, EDM, heavy bass, dnb, dubstep, house, hip hop/trap beats.

Ghost production is what I do mostly. I like to keep a solid relationship with my clients, we are good friends and team workers. The communication between the artist and the producer plays a vital role during the entire process of creation. I just need to know what your ideas are, and as much infos as possible; I used to work with reference tracks. I will be constantly sending updates to make sure your needs are fully satisfied. I also take care of the mixing/mastering process.

Over the years I also made a bunch of samplepacks for different companies.

Other than my studio experience, I also do PR and playlist curation for a UK record label, so I can offer consulting services to help you with the music business of nowadays, distribution, placement, promotion etc.

    As I continue to work with Marco, I have been seeing noticeable improvement with my abilities through his guidance. Progress made a big breakthrough when I took a break from lessons to make a song, and then he helped me fine tune it creatively and technically. Understanding what needed to change and then putting it in motion really helped me clarify some of the written lessons. Thanks Marco!

    Marco is extremely fast and efficient with getting his mix and master work done. In addition to having a quick turnaround, he was also very cooperative with the changes I wanted to make. I would definitely work with him again!

    Clear and concise communication and lessons. Great language for a beginner to understand, but he clearly has the depth of knowledge for someone more experienced looking to hone their craft.

    Marco has been absolutely incredible to work with thus far. Timely, professional, great at communicating, with fair prices and an amazing attitude. In the short time we've been working together he has taught me so much and brought the track nagging in my mind to life (and it's a banger).

Interview with Marco Donnarumma

  6. A: I produce music for 18 years. During this path I had the change to take care of all the music production related aspects, like making sample packs, presets, sound design, mix and master etc. I also have some skills in promotion and music business.

  7. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  8. A: Obviously my dream collab would be with Skrillex, he never miss a hit and he's so unique!

  9. Q: What's your typical work process?

  10. A: I do my best to start working on a track from scratch already having in mind what I wanna get and how. The idea has to be clear and effective since the very beginning of the session.

  11. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  12. A: A mixture of them.

  13. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  14. A: If you have a clear and precise idea of what you need, it will be a pleasure to work together. I used to work with reference track for my clients, but I can also involve my own ideas if you want to.

  15. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  16. A: I usually work on bass music but I can really handle any kind of music.

  17. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  21. Q: How would you describe your style?

  22. A: I can be fire, I can be water :)

  23. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  24. A: The main idea is the most important thing when producing a song, so make sure you have an effective and clear idea and lay it down very fast. Skills are useless if you are not saying anything new with your music.

  25. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  26. A: Satisfaction and results within deadlines :)

  27. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  28. A: I like to make music. Even if I have to work on something I don't like, it's a good chance to learn something new and to wider my horizons.

  29. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  30. A: Other than myths, laptop and headphones are enough :)

  31. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  32. A: Skrillex is a very talented producer, he brought an underground genre of music to be mainstream, and now he cover a very wide range of genres, keeping his identity. That's the answer.

  33. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  34. A: Ghost Production and Mastering
