Actor/Singer Mauro Castillo is Enchanted with KRK

Oscar and GRAMMY Award-Winning Musician Relies on Brand’s Pro Audio Solutions for Recording and Mixing Applications

Before the world knew him for singing about Bruno, singer, actor, trombonist, and musical producer Mauro Castillo was crafting award-winning music inspired by his home country of Colombia. Growing up, Castillo immersed himself in his culture, singing, playing salsa, and learning the folkloric hand-drum-based music of Colombia. After obtaining an art degree from the Universidad de Valle, Castillo went on to lead GRAMMY® Award-winning salsa band Grupo Niche, along with releasing his own GRAMMY- and Latin GRAMMY-nominated music as a solo artist. It is with his solo career that Castillo first entrusted his craft to KRK, most recently calling on the brand’s ROKIT 10-3 Three-Way Studio Monitors, S8.4 and S10.4 Subwoofers, V-Series 4 Studio Monitors, and KNS 6402 Headphones.

First introduced to the brand by engineer Carlos “El Loco” Bedoya, Castillo recognized the iconic yellow cones of KRK’s Exposé line from his time in recording studios throughout Miami. When it came time to work on his second studio album, “La Receta,” Castillo got his hands on KRK’s ROKIT 10-3 Studio Monitors. “KRK has been a reference ally for me for a long time, since at least 2016,” he says. “For my second album, I wanted a three-way speaker that could help me hear how my sounds would be distributed through bigger systems. The ROKIT 10-3 was a great option for my budget when I was working on that album; they were exactly what I was looking for.”

Today, Castillo relies on his KRK S8.4 Subwoofer for consistent and accurate audio in his home studio. “It’s amazing because it allows you to have an accurate reference of how it will sound in a car or in a nightclub,” he explains. “It’s lightweight and easy to use, and a great option if you’re trying to pursue your dreams. It just complements my studio very well. I also borrowed a KRK S12.4 subwoofer from a friend, for my recent single ‘ChaCha Me.’ It worked great for catching the low frequencies of that song, which has a nightclub vibe.”

Perhaps one of the most notable ways Castillo uses his KRKs is with his non-profit, La Puerta Music, a program designed to teach low-income students the ins and outs of the music industry from professionals around the world. For the organization, Castillo records tutorials and shares music business information from his studio in Bogotá. “I wanted a little more from my amplifiers, so I purchased the KRK S10.4 Subwoofer,” he explains. “It does all the low frequency management for me. It really allows my amplifiers to just do their thing.”

Beyond offering Castillo’s experiences, La Puerta Music also holds a wealth of knowledge from all corners of the musical world. “I found that there are a lot of people with the energy and motivation to learn music, but they are without the services or tools to learn,” he adds. “I made an open call to singers, trombonists, producers, writers, and instrumentalists to be a part of this community. Now, I have a large group of professionals working alongside me, including producers who have worked with Missy Elliot and Beyoncé, helping teach the popular music concepts, and how to play both traditional and salsa music. We also provide databases that allow working artists to record and share their performances for students to view.”

Moving forward, Castillo will put his newest gear from KRK―the V-Series 4 Studio Monitors and KNS 6402 Headphones, through the paces. “They’re very cool for recording voices,” he says about the headphones. “They cut well, and I like the medium register on them. I’ve only used them for recording so far, but I’m excited to try them out with mixing as well.” He finishes saying; “I know there are a lot of pricier options, but I trust KRK for referencing because I know my mixes will be accurate to what the listener experiences in the outside world.”

Modern Machines Energizes Crowds with Original Songs Crafted Using KRK Studio Monitors

If there’s one thing Brooklyn-based DJ, producer, and musical artist Dimitry Mak, aka Modern Machines, needs when he’s in the studio, it’s trust―in his gear and himself. As a self-taught producer, he trusts his gut in the studio, crafting songs that naturally sound and feel good to him. The artist started his musical journey playing in heavier rock and hardcore bands, only DJing while not on tour. But there was a natural progression to being a DJ full-time, transferring his skills from one type of musician to another. Known most commonly by his stage name, Modern Machines loves the control and fun of being a DJ. Before he can bring the energy to esteemed venues all over the world, however, he puts in the work in his home studio. Modern Machines trusts his KRK RP8 ROKIT G4 White Noise Studio Monitors for reliable sound and audio quality when creating new music.

“I’ve been using KRKs since I started producing music. The ROKITs have been with me from my first song to my latest songs with millions of streams. I’m always able to hear what I’m working on perfectly. The monitors are also very accessible; they’re used across so many levels of professionalism, from pros to amateurs and bedroom producers. KRKs hit where you want them to hit, they’re familiar, and they just have the best price and quality.”

KRK Kreator Classic Winner Drops Beats with Legends at KRK Kreativity Bootcamp

Theronn “Clyde Strokes” Calvin Learns Beat-Making Tips and Tricks From Scott Storch, Amadeus and DJ Khalil

The first-ever KRK Kreativity Bootcamp, featuring Theronn “Clyde Strokes” Calvin, wrapped this summer. The final piece of the grand prize package from the KRK Kreator Classic, this three-day creative session was hosted by producer-mentors Scott Storch, Amadeus and DJ Khalil, and took Clyde to Gibson studios in Los Angeles and Miami, where he had a chance to collaborate, learn, and communicate with these legendary producers.

Day one brought Clyde to the Gibson Los Angeles Showroom/Studio, where he collaborated with three-time GRAMMY® Award-winning Producer, DJ Khalil. “At first, [Khalil] was trying to learn my style, so he could see what samples to play for me,” explains Clyde. “I played him some of my beats and songs and then he critiqued them, so I got a better understanding of how to arrange things. He’s really good at [using] plug-ins and [understanding] the technical specs of making beats, so I learned a lot from that. I was also able to learn how he composes, which is amazing.” DJ Khalil defined the experience as “a true collaboration,” saying, “we were talking about everything from plug-ins to how we were collaborating. We pulled [our] laptops out and were able to link them together, airdrop files and all of that.”

On the second day of bootcamp, Clyde met up with musician and Multi-platinum Producer Amadeus. “I like that when you hear [Clyde’s] tracks, you can distinguish who you hear on it,” says Amadeus. “I think that’s a very important part as a producer. It’s great to create from feeling, but you still have to say: ‘this is what I love, this is what I created, this is how I felt,’ but [also] ‘who do I hear on it?’” Following his meeting with Amadeus, Clyde expressed his gratitude for the opportunity, saying “This experience has been good for me because, while I do well on beats, I learned more about the business and networking side. Meeting with these producers has been the biggest thing in my career so far… I think there’s nothing better than what I’ve gotten from them. It’s so great being around these people and getting this information; it’s like a breath of fresh air.”

Scott Storch, the eight-time GRAMMY-winning Producer and former ASCAP Songwriter of the Year, was in the house on Clyde’s last day of Kreativity Bootcamp, sharing his industry insight. “Opportunities like this are perfect examples of ways that you can really break into the industry and be heard,” explains Storch. “That’s one of the most important things―putting your music out there in any capacity. This is a great thing and I’m happy to be a part of it.” Clyde wraps up his experience saying, “This whole thing, the KRK Kreativity Bootcamp, has been amazing. Working with all these producers from Khalil to Amadeus, to Scott Storch. They made a soundtrack to my life… It’s just been a dream come true. Bigger than the prizes and speakers, this was bigger than any of that. This has been a great experience.”

The KRK Kreator Classic put North American-based beat makers to the ultimate test, in a bracket-style competition, where participants put forth their best beats in each week with the hopes of becoming the ultimate KRK Kreator. After six weeks of pushing his creativity to the limit, Clyde Strokes came out on top. As the first-place winner, Clyde received a Grand Prize package consisting of KRK’s newest products, the S10.4 Subwoofer, CLASSIC 8 Studio Monitors, and KNS 8402 Studio Headphones, a $500 Guitar Center gift card, and a one-year BeatStars Pro membership, along with gear from some of the industry’s top brands, including iZotope, Native Instruments, Shure, and Universal Audio.

Maria Linares Crafts Music Masterpieces with KRK Headphones

Colombian composer Maria Linares is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry, and she has the titles to back it up. Her work can be found across the entire production industry, having composed for a number of theatre, web series, film, and television projects, including the 2022 documentary Sandboy and 2019 film, Ana’s Desire, on which she has an original song featured. When she’s not composing, Linares can be found working with directors from across the globe through her production company, Fiona Records, or holding positions with progressive companies and organizations including Grita.io, the Women in Music Colombia chapter, Mucine, and the Colombian Academy of Science and Cinematographic Arts. As a crucial creative mind for so many outstanding projects and groups, Linares requires a pair of headphones that will be an accurate reference and help her craft quality sound. She turns to KRK for the KNS 8402 Headphones, pairing them with her long-trusted ROKIT 5 G3 Studio Monitors for optimal performance.

“The ROKITs have been my main studio monitors for many years, but I always wanted a pair of headphones to match them, especially when I’m composing or producing away from the studio. Now I finally have a pair of the KNS 8402 Headphones, and I love them! With the KNS, I’m able to work away from my studio while getting the same sound and accuracy that I like from my monitors.”

GRAMMY Award-winning Engineer Javier Valverde Explores Dolby Atmos Mixing With KRK

New Atmos Room Includes the Brand’s V-Series Studio Monitors for Immersive Music Experiences

From the moment he first saw an audio engineer at work, GRAMMY® Award-winning Recording and Mixing Engineer Javier Valverde knew he was destined for that career path. Originally from Bolivia, Valverde later moved to Miami, where he advanced his skills, eventually working with a number of high-profile clients, including Maná, Alejandro Sanz, Brandy, and Timbaland. He also worked as T-Pain’s main engineer for nine years. When posed with the opportunity to transform his Wynwood-based mixing studio into a Dolby Atmos room, Valverde wanted a solution that was both cost-effective and provided professional results.

KRK checked all the boxes, leading Valverde to place three of the brand’s V-Series 8 Studio Monitors in the front left, center, and right of the studio, along with two additional V8 monitors in the rear. Two V-Series 6 Studio Monitors on the right and left sides, four V-Series 4 Studio Monitors in the front and back of the ceiling, and an S12 Subwoofer below his desk complete Valverde’s new Dolby Atmos room.

First introduced to KRK while assisting at The Hit Factory, Valverde was already familiar with the brand’s performance in the studio. “An engineer came in for a project I was working on and had the original V8s, and I just thought, ‘Wow, these sound really good,’” he says. “The fullness and the bottom that they were getting out of the KRKs was very clean and powerful and so much better than the regular monitors we had in the studio at that time. I found them very impressive. After finding KRK in different studios throughout my career, it was a no-brainer what monitors I would choose when I finally opened my own.”

Based in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami, Valverde turned his mix studio into a custom Dolby Atmos studio with the help of friend and colleague Carlito Cobos. “I was originally mixing with KRK ROKIT 5 Studio Monitors, and I was really digging the mixes I was getting out of them; they made everything sound great,” explains Valverde. “When Carlito approached me about making an Atmos room, I didn’t think it would be in the budget, but he showed me how we could use all KRKs. He helped me with the acoustic paneling and tuning of the room, and by the time we were up and running in January, the monitors sounded great. The room is awesome.”

Since opening the doors to his new Atmos room, Valverde has been nothing short of impressed. Recent work of his includes the single “Like Dis” by Nappy Boy Entertainment artist Chayo Nash, who collaborated with the label’s front man, T-Pain, on the song. Valverde also worked on the upcoming single for Moroccan artist Ghita. “Everybody who comes into the studio is blown away,” Valverde continues. “Not only by the immersive audio but also by the way the monitors sound; they’re great. The mid-range is so clear, and you get good spacing and depth. That is what really stands out to me and to the artists coming into the studio. Plus, with the S12 sub in there, I get extra power on top of the V8s.”

Moving forward, Valverde is excited to continue creating and exploring all that his new room can offer. “I’m so happy I found this place,” he adds. “When I go to work, I’m able to clear my brain and be innovative. As a mixer, the Atmos room further enhances my creativity. It has opened so many more doors for me, and it’s so much fun! I feel so lucky and blessed to be doing this. KRK has great, affordable, and familiar solutions―I really trust the brand. With so many producers using KRK, I know that when I send my mixes over, they hear what I’m hearing. They’re so great, in fact, that I just had a client of mine order the V8s for her home studio, and she loves them. It would be crazy not to use KRK.”

Diamante Eléctrico Relies on KRK for Accurate Listening and Production

Colombian Rock Band Trusts Brand’s V-Series 6 Studio Monitors and S10.4 Subwoofer for New Album

Looking to carve their own path in the industry, singer and bassist Juan Galeano and guitarist Daniel Alvarez joined forces with one goal in mind: creating a rock and roll band. After years of making music in different ensembles,the pair formed Colombian rock band Diamante Eléctrico. With three Latin GRAMMY® wins and a 2021 GRAMMY nomination under their belt, Galeano and Alvarez are now turning their focus to the band’s forthcoming studio album. For this new record, which includes the singles “Daniboy,” released May 11, and “Colibrí,” released June 23, the duo wanted gear they could trust to provide accurate listening both in and out of the studio. For this, the group selected KRK V-Series 6 Studio Monitors for their personal workspaces, with Alvarez also having a S10.4 Subwoofer.

Daniel Alvarez of Diamante Eléctrico

“KRK has been a very recognizable brand to me for many years,” explains Alvarez. “Even before I decided to build my home studio before the pandemic, I knew it was the brand to choose. I have seen KRK’s studio monitors used in so many different situations—professional studios and smaller ones, and for every genre of music. It was one of those scenarios where I knew I had to have KRK gear once I built a studio of my own. They’re everywhere, so it’s a trusted reference you’ll most likely find wherever you go.”

The distinctive yellow cones and captivating sound are what impressed Galeano, leading him to select the gear for his home studio. “I’m currently using the KRK V-Series 6 Studio Monitors, but I have used KRK speakers and headphones throughout the years,” he says. “The V6s are reliable, real, good-looking, and very affordable for their features and quality. They have always been easy to incorporate into my workflow, from smaller setups to my full-size studio. KRKs deliver everytime, in every way.”

Alvarez features a similar set up in his personal studio, adding a KRK S10.4 Subwoofer to pair with his V-Series 6 Studio Monitors. “My V6s are very accurate and always create a truthful sound for my music,” he explains. “It’s a great balance between enjoying yourself in the studio and having the ability to be critical about what you’re listening to.”

Juan Galeano of Diamante Eléctrico

That reliable, critical listening is exactly what the duo was looking for when working on their upcoming album. “Our new record has the KRKs all over it,” explains Galeano. For their upcoming release, most of the duo’s pre-production, overdubs, and vocals were all mixed using the V6 studio monitors. “The entirety of my vocals and guitar for our four-time Latin GRAMMY- and GRAMMY-nominated album Mira Lo Que Me Hiciste Hacer were also recorded with KRK,” adds Alvarez. “As a guitarist, finding a pair of monitors that I trust to record through is quite the challenge. The V6s are loud and move enough energy to keep you excited, but they also keep the audio truthful and accurate.”

Whether working on a personal project or creating music for Diamante Eléctrico, the duo continues to trust KRK. “I’ve listened to many other brands before, and I can say that only the KRKs feel like home,” finishes Alvarez. Galeano agrees, saying “I’ve used KRK on every project I have worked on for the last 20 years and they are an essential tool for me as a producer and musician. They have a great low-end and they complement all the other gear I use. My mixes always work with the KRKs since they’re such an accurate reference point for producing, mixing, and evaluating masters.”

KRK Rocks the House for Producer Barry Pointer

As a Los Angeles-based producer and owner of Riott House Studio, Barry Pointer works alongside some of the biggest names in music. After starting his career in music for film and television, Pointer decided to focus more exclusively on his passion for music producing, recording, and mixing and went all in, building his first studio in LA. Today, his newest studio, Riott House, operates as both a space to host artists and their production teams, and a private studio where Pointer can personally work on projects that come to him. With a client base that includes the likes of The Creatures, L.A. Rats (Nikki Sixx, Rob Zombie, John 5, Tommy Clufetos), Vixen, and more, Pointer knew he needed monitors that would accurately project what he intends to be heard by the listener. For this, he selected KRK V-Series 8 Studio Monitors to get the authentic, natural sound that he and his clients love.

“When I set up the KRK V8 Studio Monitors, I instantly fell in love with what I was hearing, not only in the studio but when I listen back in other environments as well. There is no color in the sound; no boosted low end; no over accentuated mids or highs. It’s just a well-balanced sound that completely represents my mixes. Over the years, I have tried many different studio monitors, some two and three times the price of the V8s, and the V8s are the winner for me.” 

KRK Delivers for Tyler Cain’s Genre-Defying List of Production Work

Producer Embodies Nashville’s Diverse Music Scene with Brand’s V-Series 8 Studio Monitors and KNS 8402 Headphones

Powered by passion and inspired by diversity, Artist and Producer Tyler Cain has been taking the Nashville music scene by storm. After growing up in Virginia and honing his guitar skills performing in local bars, Cain moved to “Music City, USA” looking to turn his hobby into a career. What he found was a group of mentors, friends, and inspiration that moved him to embrace and explore the industry as a producer. Today, Cain continues to produce and program new music from his home studio, with credits on multiple GRAMMY-nominated albums of the year and a diverse portfolio of artists to show for it. For his production work, Cain needs to trust his gear to handle the variety of genres he works with, which is why he chose to deck out his home studio with KRK V-Series 8 Studio Monitors and KNS 8402 Headphones.

After getting his first taste of KRK in studios throughout Nashville, Cain remembers being instantly impressed. “The monitors always sounded so good in any circumstance, no matter the scenario we put them in, whether on the road and throwing a pair up in a hotel room or using them in a fancy studio,” he says. “Right out of the gate, they sound and feel good. I love the low-end on the V8s, it’s really tight and warm, and I’ve found a lot of success using them on an eclectic range of projects. I also have five pairs of the KNS headphones that I use personally, and for any musician who comes into the studio. They’re fully incorporated into my entire workflow, so I’m super comfortable with them. I’ve probably written hundreds of songs using them.”

Cain has kept his new KRK gear busy with a variety of new projects this past year. Most recently, he produced The Covers, a collaboration with Americana artists Ashley Monroe, Ruston Kelly, and Britney Spencer, and did some songwriting and programming work on Gramps Morgan’s GRAMMY-nominated reggae album, Positive Vibration. He also collaborated with his country-pop star wife Meghan Linsey on her newest single “If You Need Me, Don’t,” and is currently finishing up his own personal album to be released later this year.

Cain thrives in collaborative environments, often sharing ideas with hip-hop star and close friend, Chingy. “He has definitely inspired the hip-hop style in my productions,” Cain explains. “The KRKs are great for that style; I don’t miss a thing with the amazing low-end. I’ve also been using the V8s and KNS 8402 Headphones for live streams with Colbie Caillat. No matter the genre or scenario, KRK can really handle the music well.”

Priding himself on the diversity of genres he’s been able to work with, Cain credits his move to Nashville for exposing him to these opportunities. “There is such an eclectic range of styles I work on,” he says, “and I attribute a lot of that to just being in this town, surrounded by so many different people and artists. Moving here really influenced my outlook on music as a career. Working with and being mentored by engineers like Justin Cortelyou, Charles Yingling and Brett Meyer, people who I’m now able to call friends, helped open my eyes to the vastness of the music world. Doing those sessions in the studio with the pros morphed my creativity, and I’m now able to have my own identity and put my own music out.”

To perfect his personal style, Cain completes all his production work from his home studio in Nashville; a free-standing facility located in his backyard. Built during the COVID-19 pandemic, he relied on music engineering friends and the KRK Audio Tools app to get the perfect layout for his new studio. “The app was super helpful with aligning my V8s in the new studio,” explains Cain. “I used that to fine-tune them because I know how great they can sound, and I really love to lean on the monitors for that when I’m creating with somebody. They keep a positive momentum during the session and get everyone excited about what you’re working on.”

Cain also loves the way his monitors keep the energy alive during the creative process. “I think collaborations are super important to the creative process,” he notes. “I want to know what I’m going to get when I play music for my clients. When I bounce my mix down, the V8s transition to other speakers better than any other monitor. I want my clients to be excited and feel the positive energy of hearing their song for the first time, and there’s something about the KRKs that make that happen.”

KRK Provides Consistent Accuracy for Producer Lorenzo Soria’s Experimental Music

For Spanish Producer and Recording Artist Lorenzo Soria, experimentation is a non-negotiable when it comes to creating music. A founding member of groups such as Industrias94 and Califato ¾, as well as a member of musical group Fiera, and the creative mind behind projects like Polen Ralph Loren and Bazofia, Lorenzo pulls from a variety of nuanced genres for inspiration. Whether it’s techno, EDM, industrial, or electro, Lorenzo combines these electronic and Latin rhythms to craft a sound completely his own. This style can be heard on his much-anticipated LP, Sonidero Caleuche, with Chilean artist Sebastián Orellana ofLa Big Rabia. When he’s producing with these avant-garde styles and bass-heavy club music inspirations, Lorenzo relies on the high-quality and accurate sound he gets from his KRK V-Series 6 Studio Monitors and S12.4 Subwoofer.

Pictured: Lorenzo Soria with his KRK V-Series 6 Studio Monitors and S12.4 Subwoofer.

“For my new studio, I wanted accurate playback on all my audio productions, and the V6 and S12.4 Subwoofer give me exactly what I was looking for. It felt like going from driving a casual, everyday car to suddenly having a sports car; it was an experience I have never felt before when producing music. Between my very first pair of ROKIT 5s that I still use to this day and my brand new V6s and sub, I am so happy having KRK in my studio setup.”

Life is Sweet with KRK

Colombian Artist Soy Emilia Grooves on New Album with Brand’s ROKIT 5 White Noise Studio Monitors

Expressing a true passion for music, Colombian Artist and Producer Juanita Carvajal has dominated and perfected her craft in every part of the industry for the past ten years. Whether she’s working on tour, writing behind the scenes, producing in the booth, or performing live by her stage name, Soy Emilia, Carvajal has done it all. Recently focusing her attention on her second album, Argidulce (“Bittersweet” in English), which is set for release this July, Carvajal was looking for studio monitors that she could trust to bring her music the groove and bass she desired. After working with KRK in the early days of her career, Carvajal knew the brand could get the job done and turned to the KRK ROKIT 5 White Noise Studio Monitors.

“I fell in love with the sound of ROKITs back in 2010, when the first artist I worked for, Esteman, was using them,” explains Carvajal. “When creating Argidulce, I wanted a lot of rhythmic instruments and the groove you get with good bass and drums. My ROKIT 5s really involve those low frequencies in the sound and make you feel it. They put it all together for me nicely. The groove works with the bass, and the drums work with the kick, and it all sounds really accurate. Even when I’m mixing through headphones, they sound amazing.”

Appropriately named, Argidulce is the product of years of hard work on Carvajal’s part. Entirely self-taught in every industry role, she had to learn the ropes the hard way, at times playing the role of booker, tour manager, and product manager without even realizing it. “I do a lot of things myself for my album ― recording instruments, making edits, working on the mix. I taught myself everything, but the music business is tough,” Carvajal explains. “As women, we must demonstrate that we are producers, that we have the knowledge, that we can work in post. We must show that we are good enough and that we earned our place in the studio.”

Living through these circumstances has only made Carvajal want to combat the discrepancies more. She took her passion and turned it into a teaching opportunity, sharing her music industry and business knowledge with women who started off just like her. “I love to teach music to women,” she shares. “I remember how hard it was for me to learn certain aspects of my craft, to figure out the secrets that no one tells you. I share tricks that will make playing bass easier and faster, the stuff I had to figure out on my own. I also have a few friends that I teach to record themselves using Ableton Live, and I do independent sessions with a few students. When I teach women, it’s like we’re equals, and that part is really important to me.”

When she’s not teaching or working on her new album, Carvajal is creating and collaborating on a number of new projects that she has on the horizon. “I have a lot of future plans,” she explains. “The next single for my album, called Sugar Daddy, was released April 22nd. I also have a close relationship with an electronic band from Colombia. We have one song done that will be coming out after my album, and we are composing an EP together. Personally, I’m already working on a second EP for next year with another producer, Pablo. I’ve also been collaborating with a metal band in Guadalajara, and I’m composing songs for a girl who’s just getting into being an artist. Really, ever since I got the ROKITs, I haven’t stopped making music.

“Working with the ROKITs has been great,” Carvajal finishes. “I’m able to sing and write and play when creating because these monitors just let you jam out. They also have a way of involving all the music. When I would use other monitors, I could picture the sound as a triangle, with a very high frequency. However, when I listen to music on my ROKITs, they create a round sound that involves every part of the audio, and no one sound is overpowering. I love that about the ROKITs, you can have and hear everything.”
