Music Production

I consider playing the piano as a meditative and therapeutic practice for me and my way of relaxing my mind. After a long day of working in front of a computer, its nice to have music to help me unwind at the end of the day.

I use a Boss RC-505 Loop station to record grooves, improvised melodies and jam sessions and arrange them into instrumentals using Logic Pro X.

Some of my favorite artists include: Thelonious Monk, Amy Winehouse, Ray Charles, Snoh Aalegra, Oscar Peterson, Scott Storch and J Dilla.

"Ocean Beach"

Performed, mixed and mastered by Manny Cortez.
Beat licensing available through

Beat Licensing

My instrumentals are available for licensing to use for your song, film, social media content or other projects. I'm also available to create custom chords and melodies.


Are the beats still tagged when I purchase a license?

No, the Beatstars tagline will not be included when you purchase the beat.

Will I own the beat once I purchase it from your store?

Yes and No. Yes, you'll be able to use it for your projects, but may not sell the beat/instrumental as your own. Because it's a license, there may be other artists who have purchased the same beat. You may inquire about an exclusive license, in which you'll fully own the beat and have exclusive rights to use the beat.

Which payment methods do you accept?

Beatstars uses PayPal, so you're able to use most credit/debit cards. For exclusive beats, I will send you an invoice through. Please contact me for more information.

Can I download the files directly after I make the payment?

Yes, your files will be available to download immediately after purchase.

Are you available to create custom solos, chords and melodies after I purchase a beat?

Yes, I'd love to help with your project and I'm available for recording sessions for an additional fee. Please contact me for more information.
