A great Job as usual. Edu always has a quick turnaround and knows just what the song needs in each section. A total pro!
Edu is one of the best producers I've had the pleasure to work with. All I gave him to go off of was a basic demo, and he got me the perfect drums for my song within just a day. When the song had a small change later in production, he also got me a revision ASAP. Easy to work with, fast, and most importantly great product. I will definitely look Edu up again next time I need some great drums
Extremely talented musician. Plays drums and sings with equal ease and precision. Truly understands the drummer's role in a band, whether in rock, pop, country, heavy metal...that makes your song sounds even better
One of the best drummers that i have the pleasure to work with. Extremely musical, play for the music, pop/rock solid!
