Creative percussion recordings for your music

Hello all!

I'm happy to offer you creative percussion recordings. My main goal is to support your music, from simple percussion parts to a massive-sounding percussion orchestra.

After traveling around the world, gathering sounds and rhythm philosophies from different music styles, I developed the sensitivity to feel and map the inner groove of a track.

With vast experience in recording for creators of different genres, I mostly record for producers who need to blend the sound of traditional drums and percussion with modern and up-to-date productions.

Using mostly drums from Africa, Brazil and India, I offer textures and sounds that can work in styles like EDM, Hip Hop, Pop, Funk, House, Jazz, and Afrobeat. I usually do not play Latin percussion and music.

I will record my percussion on music that I can contribute to, and that inspires me. I will not take any job, as it is essential for me to feel connected to the music.

What I offer:
• A solid multitrack percussion recording.
• Creative percussion ideas recorded to offer your music a different flavor
• Edited perfectly so you can easily cut, arrange, mute, play with the different parts

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
