Learn Tricks and Techniques You Need To
Create Huge EDM Mixes

"What makes this track really cool and great to learn from is that there are analog synth sounds (Juno-60 and Virus TI-2), digital synths, orchestral Kontakt sounds, as well as real instruments, plus there's a huge vocal on top and a giant dance groove track underneath. All of these different elements will push the students to learn how to properly blend many types of sound into one cohesive mix."

This combination of analog and digital parts allows him to add his touch to any project of any style as he has the best of both technological worlds at his fingertips.

As EDM continues to infiltrate more genres, Luca desires to bring his specialty to the table. From hip-hop to pop, and the continued spread of electronic dance music, he wants to extend his skills to any artist who wants a dynamic track with flair that simply sounds amazing. Yes, mixing, mastering and sound engineering is technical but it is also an art – and Luca Pretolesi is the modern day Da Vinci.
