    Toledo is a great artist and producer. I was very happy and lucky to have worked with him on my EP, easy going, professional, talented and friendly. No ego, I highly recommend Toledo, one of the best young producers I've worked with. Mostdef the coolest dude in town. Cheers.

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

  30. A: MIXING TIP: 1- Before you can effectively start making any adjustment to volume panning, Eq etc, it is important to first establish what your priorities are in your mix. In any track that features a lead vocal, it is safe to assume that the vocal will be the top priority, then you can then begin to make decisions on the volume of the vocal, where it is placed on the stereo field and what frequencies you want to emphasize. 2- Bass should remain MONO in the stereo field in order to allow the elements of your track to breathe and have more presence in your track. 3- SIDECHAINING the bass to the kick is the corner stone of EDM. GENERAL TIPS 1- Depending on the genre and sample you selected, Don't tune your kicks, they work as transients in your track. 2- Rhythm plays a huge role in how memorable your melodies are. 3- add reverb to your sub and stack 12 layers of OTT on your master. 4- don't follow tip number 3.

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

  32. A: I mainly work on EDM but sometimes i'm asked to deliver a track that is out of my comfort zone. Some latin Youtubers asked me to crate a reggaeton album for them and even though i'm not a huge fan of the genre, we're happy with the end result.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: Writing melodies and chord progressions. Sound design Mixing techniques Work under pressure or deadlines

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I always try to deliver something unique or interesting to a track in general wether is something from my own project or my clients projects. Always trying to achieve high quality jobs and always trying to differentiate myself from other artists or producers in order to standout from the rest.

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

  38. A: I actually would start writing chords, that allows me to decide the tone of the overall track, then move on into the bass section and build the main melody or idea of the song. From then I will start creating the arrangement, start programming drums and start adding effects throughout the track.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: My studio setup consists on my: macbookPro 16" M1 Max Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S61 mk2 midi keyboard Audio-technica M50X headphone setup Krk Rokit 6 monitors Scarlett 6i6 audio interface Samsung 49" Ultra Wide Curved monitor Arturia MiniLab MKII midi controller Razer MousePad, mouse, keyboard etc. (RIP to my credit Card) :(

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

  42. A: Avicii is the artist that inspired me to pursue this dream of making music, when I discovered Seek Bromance and Levels 9 years ago I was introduced into EDM and decided that I wanted to pursue music production as a career. Other artists that inspire me are Martin Garrix, Kshmr, Kygo and A R I Z O N A.

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