He has since joined forces and is the anchor to the family at KDS Music Studios.
Luis "Epic Nick" Fernandez
Fernandez has worked on projects from Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Acehood, Future, T-Pain, Mavado and Chris Brown. He spent his early career working as resident engineer for DJ Khaled in Miami, and it was there that he learned how to work under pressure. One day, Luis was the only engineer at the studio - and they needed to record the vocal hook to Bugatti (by Ace Hood, Featuring Future and Rick Ross). Luis recorded Future's famous lines in under a half hour - applied the right vocal effects - then the track was passed on to world famous engineer Manny Maroquin - and the rest was history. Luis now has residency at KDS Recording Studios where he specializes in Hip Hop, R&B, and Pop. He can catch a great vocal performance and has a unique approach to mixing bass and drums.
