    Aviv Is definitely the best drummer I ever worked with.
    I completely feel blessed that I had a chance to play and sing alongside this incredible musician/drummer.
    Studio recordings or live performances, It doesn't even matter
    He's got this soulful/R&B vibes that just made me feel goosebumps every time I see this guy In his element.
    I would say that his beautiful creative mind it's what made him such a unique musician/drummer with a unique style and sound!
    If you need drums for anything, well...
    This is the perfect dude for you !!
    Much Love

    Looking for the best sounding drums on your tracks? there’s your guy. Solid, soulful and stylish grooves that varies from on-grid-tight to super loose and swingy. Them beats are tasty!!

    I've been working with Aviv for the last 18 years and he is hands down one of the most tasteful musicians i've came across. His killing chops are just an intro to his deep musicality, his ability to know what NOT to play, and his charismatic use of space, humor and imaginative abstractions.
    Besides being an awesome drummer, Aviv is also a dope producer, spreading across L.A beats, NY jazz, British electronica, indie and anything in between, with an ever-clear perspective of the big picture.

    One of the top 5 drummers in Israel, a true master of style. Aviv has an acute sence of listening, an agility of an African shamen and he is a brilliant virtuoso. He also is an amazing sound producer, adding rare spices and a personal touch to everything he handles.
    A real pleasure working with him.

    Absolutely an amazing Drummer!
    Aviv is a real professional, and super nice person to work with.
    He brings each song exactly the sound and the right vibe that The music demands.
    I am so grateful to him, and I will definitely take him again at my next Recording session.
