Salvador Blajé Montiel (Sal•B) was born in Barcelona (Spain) and spent most of his childhood watching his parents mastering the craft of cutting and selling fish, hoping one day to also be able to master a craft like they did. Despite the fact that none of his parents were musicians, Salvador was always listening and dancing to music, whether it was on the radio or from his Dad's vinyl collection.

Having begged his parents for a drum-set for years, he finally received his first drum-set at the age of fourteen.  Practicing and playing hours on end, the excitement and passion for the drums that Salvador experienced at the age of fourteen has stayed with him till now.  Salvador has played in several bands and collaborated with many artists around Barcelona.  Salvador also teaches regularly and was a private instructor at the music school Aula de Música Moderna i Tradicional in La Garriga.

 At the age of sixteen, Salvador was touring across Spain with his band Tetuà, a world music band, having played over a hundred concerts and recorded and produced two successful EPs.  It was during this time Salvador discovered his passion of being 'behind the music', as a music producer.  

While being involved full time in music, he was discovered by talent agents and starred in many commercials, including Head and Shoulders and Dasani/Coca-Cola. During this time, Salvador studied from the ECAD (Escola Catalana de Doblatge). However, his passion for music only became stronger, as he wanted to hone his skills more as a music producer and a drummer.  After completing his voice-over studies he was accepted into the Berklee College of Music where he majored in Professional Music.

His vision of creating a production company with his talented friends, Shirley Song and Jimmy "Yanming" Yu came to reality in 2016, where he co-founded Soundesque.   He is currently the lead-producer and is in charge of the voice-over department, while also lending his skills as a drummer.

Jimmy Yu was born in Rochester, New York and raised in Holmdel, New Jersey just across the waters from New York City.  Having been around a rich musical environment all his life, developing a passion for music came at an early age--from playing flute in an orchestral setting to guitar in a technical metal band.  Having always been obsessed with music, Jimmy was always curious how his favorite records were made.  Who's involved? What goes into making a record?...After checking out the credits on his favorite bands and seeing the same names appear over and over again it made him think even more what it meant to be a producer and a mixer.

Focused on high fidelity, Jimmy has dedicated countless hours into making sounds come to life. Having studied Music Production & Engineering at the Berklee College of Music, Jimmy is well equipped with handling audio production involving ADR, Foley, vocal production, orchestral, choir and drum recording.   Jimmy has collaborated with clients including Vic Firth and many recording-artists, film composers, and bands as a producer and has bee tracking engineer and mixing engineer.
