Hi, my name is Marcelo Effori (aka Loco Sosa).
I've been working as a professional drummer, percussionist and music producer here in Brazil for more than 15 years. My background music study is a mix of several rock styles, African percussion, and Brazilian rhythms. I'm also an audio engineer/audio producer certified by The Oxford School Of Audio (OXSA).
Since May 2017 I am also drumming on the number one Brazilian talk show, called "Conversa com Bial".
I'm using Pro Tools 12.5, Logic Pro X, AKAI MPC 1000 and Ableton Live 9,
Waves Audio, Steven Slate, FabFilter, IKMultimedia, Metric Halo, Softube and Universal Audio (hardware and software). You will get three unedited takes for $70 (or three takes + one comp edited for timing for $100). I'll give you 3 revisions so you can get exactly what you need.
I'm endorsed by Istanbul Mehmet Cymbals and Turbo Percussion Drums.

Once again Loco produced a fantastic arrangement of jazz fusion percussion for my track :) His knowledge of arrangement is second to none, and the high quality files are just the start of what Loco can achieve for you :)
