Beautiful drum tracks with a rock vintage drum kits. Very nice! I'm a drummer and music producer. I'm from Barcelona. Contact me!
Hi! My name is Oriol "iol" Cases, from Barcelona, Catalonia.
My influences come from many different styles. Principally rock, but also folk music, electronica and jazz.
I have been playing drums for over 20 years, and I have been able to take part in many projects such as: Pomada, La Carrau, Oest Trip, Gerard Quintana, Corcs Drum & Organ ...
I’ve always had a recording studio and done music productions there, also mixing electronics.
And for some time now I have been offering online drum recordings and productions. I’ve already been able to do these jobs and I love using music as a universal language. It’s fascinating.
I work in my own studio, with good acoustics conditions and very good material. Especially good drumkits.
I will be happy to work together on your next project!
Any questions, contact me and we'll talk.
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Second time i worked with Oriol and, again, he got the result spot on!
Making something sound rounded and simple is not easy, and to get the style of the song exactly right, Oriol knows naturally how to get this done. very quick turnaround too.
Oriol knows what he's doing when you need a drum track.
Oriol was great! Professional, quick and delivered just what i needed for my track.
