(Online) Drum Recording Service
I am offering the (online) drum recording and mixing service worldwide to help artists to get well-recorded drums. Recording drums takes a lot of time and is difficult to get it right. With many years of experience as a drummer and producer, I can give your song(s) the sound that it needs. Just send me the guide track, let's videocall about the sound and parts that you have in mind and you'll receive the recorded drums after.

(Online) Mixing Service
Fresh sounding, solid and open mixes. Send me your mutlitracks, I will mix your song, you will receive a mixed song. If needed we can video call if the mix any adjustments.

Over the years I have build a network with a lot of great musicians. Need a certain type of vocal, guitar, bass or key track for your song? Just let me know!

Starting at the age of 2/3 with playing drums, I grew up with rock music (Bon Jovi, ACDC, Bryan Adams, Golden Earring). Later on bands like Nickelback, 3 Doors Down, Alter Bridge got my attention. At the age of 19 I started producing music because other producers couldn't get the sound I hear. Now many years later I'm producing all kinds of genres and artists.

Can't wait to work on your music!

    Maikel is an overall cool guy. He is very patient and really listens to the wishes and ideas of the artists he works with while still keeping his own signature sound.

    Worked with Maikel trying to find my own sound, he made me make a list of about 10 songs that I really liked production-wise, we listened to them all and that way he got a clear view of my type of style. After this, we started on a song idea that I had for ages and for which I couldn't find a suitable producer. He instantly knew what I wanted and clicked with me, which was an amazing experience which I can definitely endorse.
