My name is Jules de Gasperis. I was born and raised in Paris, France. Growing up, I spent most of my time in a family-owned recording studio, where my dad encouraged me to play different instruments and taught me a lot as I was watching the recording sessions happen.
After graduating from HEC Paris Business School, I went back to my roots and decided to commit to music professionally – I started to make a living as a session & touring instrumentalist with various acts in Europe, 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, where I was the main engineer and mixer. In 2016 I relocated to Los Angeles, in order to set foot in the American music industry and to open my own studio.
As a composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist myself, I relate to the artists I am working with on many different levels and I’m able to feel what drives them – their intention, their approach, their struggles. It helps to be able to talk music “fluently”, and understand all movings parts of the field. From 2016 to 2021, I also mixed about 400 songs for clients all around the world, which taught me a lot about sonics – but I will always think of technique as a means to convey and enhance musicality, rather than a goal in itself. We’re all just trying to connect as human beings, and music offers us a path for our truest expression – it’s all on us to explore that path!
Looking forward to hearing your music and taking it to the next level,
