    This is my second time working with Hugo and it was just as excellent as the first---he's responsive, creative and a great listener-- no ego!! Hugo and his team killed it with this track. I cannot wait to release it. If anyone is having a hard time figuring out with whom to work with all the great talented people on Sound Better, I can tell you to stop looking--Hugo is AMAZING!!!

    Great experience working with HC Studio!! Professional, creative, collaborative and efficient. Working with them, especially Hugo was a 10/10. Initially I was concerned about working with someone in Europe due to the time difference (I'm based in LA) and potential language barrier but both were non issues. Hugo was always available and explains things perfectly! And, most importantly, the final products is fantastic. I wholeheartedly recommend them and can't wait to work with HC Studio again.
