  • Who We Are

    Born in Hollywood. Inspired in Asia. Delivered worldwide.

    Proven Experience with Top 100 Artists and Venues

    "As a 30+ year radio veteran in Los Angeles with high-profile clients such as Buygore (Borgore), Size Records (Steve Angello), and Perfecto Records (Paul Oakenfold), as well as Groove Radio's live productions at top clubs including Exchange LA and Create, I have had the pleasure of having Arthur Galestian on my team.

    In addition to being a great producer and engineer, Arthur always has a positive attitude and is a pleasure to work with. He's creative and forward-thinking and will always deliver ahead of schedule, which is absolutely necessary in this fast-paced deadline-oriented industry.

    Arthur is also a talented record producer in a variety of styles including trance, deep house, progressive, electro, and bass. I highly recommend him."

    About Us

    Charming Elephant is the result of a decade's worth of experience producing mix shows, websites and digital content for the largest broadcast markets in North America.

     

    Founded by Arthur Galestian in 2015 amidst his world travels, we provide customized radio production services and mixes for radio shows, podcasts, artist compilations and albums.

     

    And what about the name, you ask? Well, Arthur's father had come to visit him in Asia, while on his own travel agenda. The two met and traveled to the former Siamese capital of Ayutthaya. There, they met a lovely elephant, who gave them a ride through the jungle, and it is on this ride that the original plans for the business came together. The elephant, as you may have guessed, was quite charming and encouraged further discussion to bring the business into fruition. And so, Charming Elephant was born.
