Robert Biesewig

Drummer, Producer, Beatmaker

Robert Biesewig on SoundBetter

Hi, my name is Robert. I am a professional drummer and beat creator, providing artists with a deep backbeat so that they can make their audience move. I have created my own and unique drum samples that are being used by major artists and producers. Let me know how I can help you! I am looking forward to working with you!

As individuals, we all have our favourite color, fashion, food and of course our favourite music. Taste is what makes us unique, but brings us all together as well.
I believe that among other skills there are only a few key ingredients that make the foundation to any great and unique track.
Preparation, source, feel, balance, lots of experience, good taste and a little bit of extra flavour.
I've been playing and recording drums for as long as I can remember. Now that I have my own studio, I am ready to work on your tracks as well.

In the past I have recorded or provided drums for, or played with:
Motrip, Avery Sunshine, Methodman, Havoc, Alchemist, Ghostface Killah, Ra the rugged man, Candy Dulfer, Caro Emerald, Bob Sinclair, Walshy Fire, and many more

I am passioned about helping you sounding your best by laying down a strong foundation for your song. Wether it is live drums or programming, making a full beat or producing the whole song.

Let's work.

Interview with Robert Biesewig

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: Most commonly I play drums live and in the studio for different artists. I also started making beats on a mpc about 200 years ago. That evolved into making beats and producing songs for a living or side hustle. Usually someone calls me with a request to handle the drum part or make a whole instrumental. I would go into my studio and only come out again when the artist is satisfied

  3. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  4. A: Pretty much every musician is an inspiration to me. As far as drummers, I am a huge fan of Steve Gadd, Stanley Randolph, Chis Dave and Gerald Hayward...and so so many producers: RZA, Just Blaze, Rick Rubin, No ID, Pharrell, and all of them...

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I have a small studio in Hamburg with a good but pretty dry sounding room. I love to experiment with old school recording settings. Love the Chandler Redds in combination with the Earthworks preamp. It is not a full sized commercial studio, but we get a lot of great sounds out of it.

  7. Q: What's your typical work process?

  8. A: Usually I'd get a call or a text with a request to handle the drum part of a song or to take of a whole instrumental. I would go into my studio and not come out before the artist is satisfied. 10 out of 10 times I will receive a raw demo and a reference track. Recording drums works best with a great guide track.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: I see myself as a servant. The song could be the guest and the artist the supervisor. As long as you make your guest feel at home and comfortable, your supervisor will be happy.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: The backbeat. I love Kick snare Hi Hat, looking at the greatest songs of all time, that is definitely where the money is at. Billy Jean.

  13. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  14. A: As in genre? Most people these days want to hear trap hi hats and Afro Beats. Thats there...But I am also working on an album with an amazing singer from Amsterdam. That stuff sounds like James Bond.

  15. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  16. A: Yes

  17. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  18. A: I have been blessed to work with a few of my heroes already. If I had to pick one, I would go all sentimental and say Quincy Jones. The musical genius that guy embodies.......crazy. Also Shuggie Otis for his creative mastermind.

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: It is 150% there but comes with a lot of space for the messenger.

  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: Started playing drums when I was 6. My first gig at 10 with a famous kidschoir in Germany. Played some Gospelshows with touring American Black Gospel Artists who came to Germany. I was 17-18. At 19 I started studying at the conservatory in Arnhem, the Netherlands. Toured all over Europe, got in touch with a couple of great musicians in LA. Worked with the Alchemist, Ghostface Killah, Killah Priest, Walter Afanasieff, Jud Friedman and many others. Now I am 35.

  23. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  24. A: Kick snare Hi Hat. and 2 sticks. Lets say the sticks are included, I would bring a Laptop and an external ssd. Would I ever come back? Is there food?

  25. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  26. A: Don't look any further, I am your guy! :)

  27. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  28. A: Best of both...Analog takes a bit longer but makes it all sound so much warmer. Less clean but more personal. Digital is great. Crazy that people make Hit Records while they are taking a dump.

  29. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  30. A: Not in person, but I am a fan of Dylan Wissing.

  31. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  32. A: Caro Emerald, Das Bo, Motrip. European stars.
