My name is Jules de Gasperis. I was born and raised in Paris, France. Growing up, I spent most of my free time in a family recording studio, where my dad encouraged me to play different instruments and where I learned from many talented artists.
After I graduated from Business School, I changed paths and decided to become a professional musician – I started to make a living as a session & touring instrumentist with various acts in Europe (The Teenagers, Au Bonheur des Dames, Ben Ellis..), and was also writing my own songs (5-year contract with EMI Music Publishing).
I soon became involved in music production and engineering, and from 2012 to 2016 I managed a mid-sized recording studio in Paris – Studio STAKATO –, where I was the main engineer and mixer. In 2016, I relocated to California, in order to set foot in the American music industry and to open my own studio space.
As a musician, arranger and multi-instrumentist, I deeply relate to the artists I am working with and am able to understand them on many different levels – their approach, their intent, but also being able to talk music “fluently” and react to all music parts. Having learned the technique to make a mix sound big is a forte that I gained over the years, but I will always think of technique as a means to convey and enhance musicality, like all the producers and mixers that inspired me on this path.
Looking forward to hearing your music and taking it to the next level,
