    Felipe is INCREDIBLE. I'm currently working with him on a large-format salsa album where he is the recording engineer and, honestly, over the 10+ years I've been making Latin music professionally, I have never had to give someone so few instructions and/or explanations as to where to pick up from, what sort of sound I want from each instrument, etc etc - he knows exactly how, what, where and when. As a result not only our hours in the studio have been super productive but the album is sounding fantastic. (Also, he edits like a samurai.) Highly, highly recommended!

    Having worked with Felipe over 6 years on different projects, I can say that the dedication and professionalism this guy brings is unparalleled! Creative and passionate producer, and incredibly talented mix engineer. Get this guy involved with your project, it'll be a great decision :)

Interview with Felipe Arévalo

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

  2. A: Your artistic concept and the production framework come first always. It will be tricky to reach to a satisfying result unless those two things are clear from the start.

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

  4. A: In production: I define my production process as a non-invasive surgery; my main goal is to let the artists' identity breathe through the song and I do that through really understanding their vision. In Mixing: Energy and definition. I am driven to achieve those two things.

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

  6. A: I love music production and mixing. I approach each track/album from the artist's vision and I make sure we carry it all the way to the finishi line in the best quality. How?... Working on pre-production and the development of a concept for the artists. Supervising the recordings and the musicians involved (as well as making sure all the legal end of things is covered) and then, recording and taking the projects in the best quality to a mastering studio. My job isn't done until your tracks are released

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

  8. A: Latin influenced and world music... any, really. It is the kind of music that just puts itself out there to be experimented with. It is never drastically so pure that you can never bring anything innovative to it.

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. A: I have a simplistic studio were everything happens initially inside-the-box. Once the project advances, depending on what it requires, I jump unto bigger studios that have the equipment necessary for the session. It could be a full analogue setup as well as a very digital environment, it really depends on what the projects calls for.

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

  12. A: I really admire the overall work of Mike Spencer (Jamiroquai, Ellie Goulding, Rudimental), the conceptual and spiritual devotion of Rick Rubin (Metallica, Shakira, etc), the musical simplicity of Gustavo Santaolalla (The Motorcycle Diaries) and Hans Zimmer (Inception OST and many others) and really admire Berry Gordy (Motown) and his ability to put together an "assembly line" to generate hits.
