The Colombian is optioned for his work on albums by Arthur Hanlon, Kany García, Alejandro Sanz and Duina Del Mar.

Julio Reyes Copello

“One seldom looks up to realize where he is, he says, and when that happens, says: ‘Wow, what time did this happen?’

What does the nomination for Producer of the Year?

People who are in the production and engineering are not rewarded when he was born Grammy. The producer is the director of the film, because he chooses to “take”, writes, arranges. I choose what’s left at the end. There are great artists who have an established concept. The success of my job is to translate their expectations in the best way.

Why did producer?

I started as a pianist and graduated as a classical composer. But I always believed that music has a mission more real. When someone makes any hard work on the street and begins to whistle, that music has the ability to change reality and cheer. It’s something tangible. I became a producer because I like making people feel good. This is vital in this job, because I have to create the perfect environment for the artist does not feel inhibited. I have to be ready for those magical moments of creation, unrepeatable. Witnessing them is the best pay I ever had.

It is a ‘musical psychologist’…

In that case I have a PhD, because driving the hypersensitivity of an artist is complicated. Any tidbit, a wrong word said, damage magic. Sanz says that I have the power to take three hours to send him to hell.

Are there rules to create that perfect environment?

I have not gotten to the eccentricities. This environment is a matter of energy. To have ready the studio, the team that people know what to do. Looking for magical moments and dealing with mystical music because it really makes life easier for people, even salvation. Four little minutes of a song can make you think twice when you are going to shoot. It’s what makes me work, the best gift I have is to go to concerts and see that the work I put you reach the people as a DNA.

Possible Prizes

The Colombian producer has two nominations for Record of the Year category, and is also in album of the year, best engineering and producer of the year.
