[NEWS] THE FORMATT, MUSIC ENGINEER, RECEIVES FIRST PLAQUE & IT’S DOUBLE PLATINUM

When thinking of a top music engineer in Miami, The Formatt always finds his name into discussion. He’s been doing this 13 years.

The Formatt recently received his first plaque. A double-platinum album plaque by Xantos Music for the song, “Bailame Despacio” in Spain. Trust me, with his insight and love for original and creative music, sound and structure, it was only a matter of time before this accolade headed his way.

In 2015, Matthew “The Formatt” DeFretias purchased a three-studio facility from subsequent owner and Grammy Award winning producer Marco “Infamous” Rodriguez-Diaz, renaming it Bay Eight Recording Studios in Miami, Florida.

The Formatt is more than just an engineer for local and up and coming Miami artists, he is also a teacher. He helps artists put records together properly while teaching the ways of “completing” a song.
