Music Producer

Juan de la Piedra on SoundBetter

I don't have my Grammys or my multi-platinum awards yet, but if you're looking for a fresh and modern sound at the level of the music industry, I'm the one. I specialize in Pop, Reggaeton, EDM, Trap, HipHop, R&B, Baile Funk, and I have high capabilities to work on finding new sounds. Don't hesitate and contact me without any commitment, let's go!

I am a producer from Madrid who works for major record labels, TV and commercials. I've been producing music for about 11 years, I play the piano and I have a degree in Contemporary Music Composition.

I have the ability to produce commercial songs as well as bolder sounding songs in a variety of genres. I am a very versatile producer with the ability to control multiple genres. My strongest point is to approach the creation of any kind of music from scratch, producing is a lifestyle that allows me to shape and translate the idea of my clients.

- Music production of a track from scratch (you can send me ideas and some references to work with).
- Music production of a track from scratch based on a previous idea (like your lyrics or an instrumental demo).
- Mix and mastering of your track (vocal mix included).
- If you are working on a project that needs a good sound design, contact me and let's talk about it.
- I can perfectly edit and do the mastering of your podcast.
- If you need good, original, modern and fresh Top Lines, I'm your guy.

I take care with all the works I make and leave them ready to be played on any radio, streaming platform, CD or Vinyl at the best high quality level. My clients usually need 2 to 3 extensive revisions for each work, and I am flexible with them.

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Recently I was working on a song for Eurovision (the best known music TV contest in Europe), via Sony Music.

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

  36. A: Mainly I bring the ability to translate the idea that my client has and express it in the best possible way. I consider my experience producing and composing songs to be extremely important when it comes to bringing any nuance to the song.

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

  38. A: It depends on the type of work my client asks me to do. In a musical production context of a song, I usually work from the beginning of the idea composing the song from the chords, lyrics and melodies, finishing with meticulous details in the production process and making final arrangements. In the case of mixing and mastering assignments, the process is simpler, clients send me their stems correctly named and ordered, they have three revisions (although I am usually flexible). Depending on the amount of work required, it usually takes between 1 and 5 days for productions. About the mixes, you will have them between 1 to 3 days and the mastering in 1 day maximum. This all depends on the quantity, density and type of work required!

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I usually work in two different studios, I have my own professional home studio (essential!) and another one in the center of Madrid with a professional set up to the level of the industry.

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