  1. Review by Tobin M.

    Ruben de Ruiter is astounding at following already recorded tracks not played to a click, making rhythmic sense out of varying speeds, etc. Plus, the details he brings out with his conga and bongo playing is superb. A true artist.

  2. Review by Tobin M.

    Ruben combined congas, quinto & shekere to create a rhythmic bed for my arrangement of Chick Corea's "Sorceress", a very tricky tune with many layers. His hand work was perfect for the track. Again, excellent work!

  3. Review by Tobin M.

    Ruben provided numerous backing tracks, playing conga, caxixi, cow bell, ride cymbals and kick drum to a difficult arrangement of Giant Steps, recorded in multiple meters with no click track. I applaud him for his patience, fortitude, & musical talent He came up with many textures to make the track extra special. We communicated well. His sounds are clean & proficient, steady & creative. He also provided rolls & hits so I could fill, change were needed. I hope to work with him again!

    Ruben's percussion tracks were spot-on exactly what our song needed, very inspired playing, and sonically captured perfectly. Ruben was a pleasure to work with, highly recommended!
