We had the good fortune of connecting with Luis Pacheco and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Luis, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
What a lot of people don’t realize is that there is a lot of work that goes into creating a song this being the case after the song has already been written. From recording, editing, and mixing these are all processes that require a major attention to detail.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My art is very interesting, I love sessions where the client lets me be expressive in the mix of a song. Mixing is the process of taking all of the sounds in a song and creating a audible vision, where you can close your eyes and picture where the song is taking you. how colorful do you want your drums to sound? what kind of emotion do you want your instruments to give? and most importantly the song should be able to take you on a ride.

I feel that I’ve been very lucky, out of college I landed an internship at one of the best studios in Vegas and earned my keep. I did the all dirty work from cleaning the rooms to grabbing coffee for clients. When my internship was up they kept me around as a Production Assistant. At the time the lead engineer told that unfortunately they were at capacity with engineers and that I should keep looking elsewhere. Soon enough one of the engineers gets fired and I got my chance. Then Years later the lead engineers leaves and me being the person who knows the rooms the best it was only right for me to take the position of Head engineer.

Thought all my years of experience, I’ve never stopped learning and I actually enjoyed it. I’ve learned that if you want to be successful in the music industry you must learn and adapt with it. The music industry is alway changing!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
There are so many good spots to eat but my favorite here in Vegas is Bonito Michoacan. The best Mexican Food in Vegas located on Decatur and Twain. Then id say stay away from the strip and go to Downtown for drinks!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I wouldn’t be where i am today without the guidance and direction of all of the mentors and engineers I’ve assisted for. Here in Vegas we get a lot of high level clients stopping by with their own team and that leaves me assisting for these sessions. I always try to be a fly on the wall in these rooms and absorb as much information as I can, There are so many successful engineers out there that all have many different ways of doing things. I feel so fortunate to be able to learn from the best so that I’m able to take my skill set to another level.
