Producer, remixing , mixing and mastering engenieer.
Classically piano trained and a pioneer in the electronic Spanish scene, I started working in my early 20´s remixing for all the major record labels in Spain working with: James Brown, Texas, Alejandro Sanz, Arturo Sandoval, Earth Wind and Fire, Mark Anthony, and many others.
At the same time, I was producing one of the most avangarde Spanish electronic bands of the 90's: Side effects . I got to write tunes for scores for Alejandro Amenabar, "Open your eyes” and kept remixing and mastering many other artists and promising bands. Also, I was asked to produce for Sony, EMI, BMG, Hispavox and a long list of big and small record labels while producing many other bands like Femme Fatal for EMI.
After this period, in the year 2000, I moved up to be the recording and mixing engineer for Nacho Cano (MECANO) which at the time was the best selling Spanish pop band of all time. I worked in his recording studio Ashram in Madrid. I got to record and Mix Hans Zimmer, Sting, Bob Dylan, Juanes, Placido Domingo, Noa, Ricky Martin, Antonio Banderas, and a long list of award winning artists. I have recorded in AR, Air studios, and Metropoly just to name a few.
Finally, I love working with emerging artists and indie labels, that is why I am always open to new and exciting projects from remixing to mixing to producing. For me, it’s not all about the money…It's all about the music.

Working with Fernando on this creative adventure has been a real joy. He's very easy to work with, always open and receptive to feedback and quick to respond. I knew from the start that I could rely on his musical good taste and creative imagination to bring new life to my song Aeropiano and he did just that. I'm extremely happy with the remixed version of Aeropiano. I will definitely work with him again.
