Hola! I'm a music producer, songwriter and guitar player whose sound is influenced by record makers like Louis Bell (Post Malone, Camila Cabello) Tainy (Bad Bunny, Raw Alwjandro) Andrew Watt ( 5 Seconds of Summer, Miley Cyrus). Growing up both in Spain and the US, my musical sensibility is a mixture of pop, hip-hop, rock and Urban Latin.
Before obtaining my Bachelor's Degree in Music Production & Engineer at Berklee College of Music (Boston), I had a successful career as a guitar player opening for bands such as "All Time Low" and "Panic! At The Disco." Now based in LA, I run a private studio where I've produced for artists including Indian star Raja Kumari, K-Pop idol lullaboy, Spanish sensation Agoney, and Berlin pop/dance duo YouNotUs.

4 ReviewsEndorse Nacho
Nacho worked on my recent release titled "ilaaj", a Contemporary Pop EP, as a Producer & Mixing Engineer. Since this EP was in Hindi, it was always going to be a challenge for someone who hadn't been exposed to much of Hindi Music. After watching Nacho work so closely, I was so impressed with his listening, his ability to create the best vibe for a melody, the sensibilities in terms of overall arrangement, production, and the speed at which this guy delivers the work, that I'm certain I'll continue working with Nacho for a long time! This guy is an absolute genius!
I worked with Nacho on a song at the end of last year, and I can't recommend him highly enough! He was so professional and organized, and was highly involved in the artistic/collaborative process. I haven't met many producers that are as talented and have the ear for contemporary pop/urban music like Nacho does. He can take one little idea and expand on it until YOUR vision comes to life. He's also extremely easygoing to work with; he always makes an effort to make you comfortable and he's a very open-minded collaborator. And lastly, and importantly, he's punctual, and always delivers on time.
In the 7 years that I have been in the music industry, I have never met a producer that matches up to Nacho. Every demo that I bring to him, he brings to life. We now have songs released and distributed by Warner music group and I have him to thank. He is a master not only in terms of the creation of songs but his valuable creative input. He helped me find a direction and we are now in the works of putting together an album. Most importantly, Nacho is able to give a song exactly what it needs, while always going the extra mile. He puts the passion first and thats what I appreciate the most.
I met Nacho 3 years ago and since the moment we started working together I loved the workflow and creativity levels we achieved. He is a very knowledgeable engineer and an incredible producer. We have worked in more than a dozen tracks and every project ended up being flawless.
Nacho understands producing and the skill to achieve a creative environment. We worked in several styles like: Hip Hop, R&B, Trap, Reggaeton, EDM, Pop, etc; and he showed skills and knowledge about everyone of them. Furthermore, he mixes and masters everything pretty fast and with a a lot of taste.
Interview with Nacho
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Last summer, I got introduced to an independent Indian artist that was looking to create a new sound combining the Indian pop language with the more American urban sound. This was a special experience for me because every single track was a challenge. Exposing myself to that brand new language (even literally, the whole EP was sang in Hindi) was a huge learning experience where I had to trust the artists instincts and vice verse. Once having the final product and after having the chance to visit india, I felt we really had achieved our goals and enclosed both cultures in the music we made. I was the producer and mixer for this project.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on around 5 singles for different artists, most of them in the Urban Pop side. Apart from these specific projects I am also working on setting up a multicultural production collective with some of my producer and songwriter friends. And of course, always working on improving my production skills.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not at the moment, but I am trying to get a few of my friend producers and songwriters to get they're profiles up.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. From my experience I found they both can have a very different sound but there is always one that works best depending on the project or part. That being said, I almost exclusively work in the digital world since it's much more accesible and convenient for me.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise professionalism in every aspect, putting my 100% effort and passion into making you satisfied, and having a nice and unique human interaction.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being able to create a piece of art from a simple idea, and facing new scenarios with every new project.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be confident about your art and open minded for it to take different forms.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My computer, an interface, a guitar, Ableton Push 2 and a pair of speakers.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started out as a guitar player in many bands throughout my childhood and then studied jazz guitar in Barcelona at the same time I was touring and writing with the band Lancaster. Although I had always been recording demos, it wasn't until 2016 that I really focussed into music production and mixing, that's when I attended Berklee College of Music and got my degree in music production and engineering. At first my goal was to be able to get my own songs done from the very first idea to the master, but then I realised I really enjoy working with other artists and using my own sensibilities to help them channel their message. I have now been releasing my own productions for the last 4 years and I've had the chance to work with a variety of artists from all around the world (USA, India, Spain, Turkey, Singapore, Germany....). Throughout this experiences I developed a passion for cultural movement and cross-pollination in music which is one of my main driving forces along with artistic intention.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Viby and hard hitting.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't judge your ideas when you are creating.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Urban Pop.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is to identify the message and to keep it at the front throughout the whole production process.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I'd like to think that I bring overall cohesion.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Usually I have tow ways of working. One would be I get together with an artist and I take some time to learn what this person is searching to express with his or her art and then I build some musical ideas that can inspire vocal melodies and/or lyric concepts and from there, I move forward in communication with the artist to the final product. The second way would be that I by myself or with other friend producers/songwriters, find inspiration and create a musical peace (potentially with vocal melodies and lyrics) that then later is pitched to artists or executives.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio setup consist on my MacBookPro, an Apollo Twin, multiple midi keyboards, Ableton Push 2, a Fender Stratocaster (american std.), an electric bass, an AKG 414 and a pair of Yamaha's HS-5s and HS-8s. I like to make my studio feel like a normal room so I use regular furniture to acoustically treat the room as much as I can.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: John Frusciante, Blink-182 and Ed Sheeran have been my biggest inspirations in my carrier. As far as producers, I'm a huge fan of El Guincho's and Louis Bell's work.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most of the times I work as a producer getting the song idea/intention directly from the artist and finding the way to the final product. In most cases I also mix these productions. Making beat packs is also quite common for me.
