Sessions & Production

DELIVERING GREAT DRUMS ONLINE FOR YOUR SONGS.

Getting great quality drums online has never been easier, and my remote recording sessions are about getting you drums that feel and sound just right. As a composer and producer myself, I understand the massive role the drums play in creating and supporting our vibe, so I put a lot of care in delivering great results.

I collaborate closely with artists, bands, and producers to ensure they great drum tracks, using my experience working in great studios like Abbey Road, A.I.R, and Eve to do so. Consequently, I’ve set up my studio and workflow to deliver this service efficiently and on time.

Deadlines

“We recorded the songs live, in singular takes, repeatedly, with the drums remaining locked without compromise to feel or fluidity. This only left me with the difficult task of picking which of the takes I liked best.”

Mikhail Daken
Singer/Songwriter
