About this unique process, Pretolesi explains, “In the past, a DJ wasn’t considered an artist. Now, he is. I view the engineer the same way. We’re trying to put emphasis on the engineer as a creative presence, when it comes to making music. We’re here to heighten the quality of the music. The sound needs to be clean, dynamic, and resound with the public.”
