How partnering up with Supreme Tracks got Alejandro on a Netflix show [Client case study]
Producer’s corner: Alejandro Calle was given a project that could take his music producer career to the next level. He had no room for mistakes. He wrote the piece and arranged it, but when it came to recording tracks, he was running out of options in his native Colombia. He didn’t have the right musicians. He contacted us asking to record double bass, drums, and Steinway Grand piano – and the rest is history.
Get to know Alejandro and how working with Supreme Tracks helped him achieve an important milestone in his career.
Alejandro, you have a very strong resume. We know that you are an artist with a wide range of interests, but can you give our readers a quick overview of your background?
I’m a Colombian musician and actor with more than twenty years of experience. With both classical and jazz background, I mostly work writing, arranging, and producing music for musical theater and audiovisual projects that involve songs. I’m also working actively as a vocal coach and a session singer. You can hear my voice in some of the most iconic jingles across my country.
What problem were you trying to solve when you contacted us?
At the time I was working on a project with a big variety of acoustical instruments. I needed a good recording studio and several very specific musicians and I was having some trouble putting all the pieces together. I was particularly concerned with the recording of an upright bass because I learned the hard way that it is a particularly difficult instrument to capture.
Yes, recording record upright bass requires experienced musicians and recording engineers. It seems that this issue was quite affecting you, right?
This particular job was for a very high-profile client. It was a big opportunity for me, and I needed to do it right, but I didn’t have enough time to go out and search for a suitable musician and studio for each instrument. That would take forever, and the slightest mistake could cost me my reputation.
Did you consider any other solutions? Surely you have a lot of contacts in the Columbian music industry.
I started to make some phone calls here in Colombia to see if some of my friends have a centralized solution to my problem but with no success. Then I remembered that I’ve sung a couple of songs in a movie where the producer has had recorded a whole symphonic orchestra online in Budapest. Also, another friend recorded part of his album online in a studio in Venezuela. Those contacts where of no use for my project, but I decided that good internet research could be of good value.
Why did you decide to give your trust to SupremeTracks? You’ve never collaborated with us or a similar online studio, surely you had your doubts.
For me, even online, customer service is the most important thing. Jake made a really good job in that matter. I asked for a huge number of quotes but the communication with Jake was a lot easier than some others. He actually showed real interest in my project trying to find the best solutions to the music and my budget. That made a big difference in my decision. I waited for a while to have a good look at all the offers but, in the end, Supreme Tracks gave me a very good hunch.
Alejandro, what would have happened if you had NOT worked with SupremeTracks?
SupremeTracks centralized all my necessities offering me a very good, high-quality solution that otherwise would have cost me a lot of time and stress. I would have probably ended up making a bunch of calls and a tour across the studios here in Bogotá, recording one instrument at a time and praying not to make mistakes.
Online services carry a certain risk. Have you considered any of them when deciding to work with us?
SupremeTracks promised to be exactly the solution to my problem: The high-level musicians that I needed, recorded by a suitable sound engineer in a high-quality studio. All in one place. It was too good to be true. Fortunately, SupremeTracks has this policy of first-time full refund if you’re not happy with their job. Nevertheless, if I was wrong, I would have been in square one again but with less time.
What reservations did you have?
I’m the kind of producer that favors musical performance over recording quality. I was already expecting high-recording quality but the fact that I was not able to be on the studio directing the recordings and talking to the musicians concerned me a lot. I know from experience that even great sound engineers could be very unmusical if they want. Also, English is no my first language and I was afraid that maybe I couldn’t express my ideas well enough for them to fully understand what I was looking for.
Can you share with our readers some of the results you’ve seen after working with Supreme Tracks?
Nowadays, time is the most valuable commodity. To have a partner like SupremeTracks, that provides a pull of very good session musicians and high-quality recordings, is essential. It is great to know that you can focus on the creative process, knowing that you have a partner that will provide you with the best solutions when needed.
The songs that we recorded were a huge success for me!
Those songs were part of a pilot for a TV show that a producer here in Colombia was selling to Netflix.
With those songs, they were actually testing me as an arranger, songwriter, and music producer. It was the first time I was working with them at that level.
Thankfully they were very happy with the results and requested me to write and produce the music for the complete season of the show on Netflix. Besides that, the producer offers me a partnership in other business that he wanted to make.
