If you want drums recordings with a vintage, warm and characterful sound then I'm your man!
I use a 'less is more' approach to recording and take the time to get the sound that's right for the track. With fewer mic's there is less chance of problems with phase when it comes to mixing the drum tracks. With well placed mic's and an ear for detail I can produce a clear, punchy and warm drum track.
Hopefully my drumming speaks for itself on the tracks below, I am confident you will love what I add to your track.

Vintage was great to work with! He was extremely patient while I was getting the other tracks to him and gave me 2 options for the drums that displayed a lot of range. I went with the first take which was diverse and added a layer to the work. I highly recommend him for his skill and creativity.
Excellent drum tracks - would highly recommend and I plan to use Vintage Dusty tracks again!

Please working with you Dusty!
I'm very satisfied with the quality of the drums, quality of the recording, fast turn-around, and most of all Matt's ability to capture the essence of the song in his drum work. I am super excited to work with him again in the future. He is able to hear the nuances of a song and perfect it in his drumming.
Dusty's beats are fresh and suited my tracks perfectly. I'm blown away by his creativity and speed of delivery. I will most definitely be using Dusty again next time I need a sick beat for my track!
Matt works quickly and creatively, the whole process was flawless from start to finish. Highly recommended.
We received three excellent takes of drums and are currently in the process of mixing and matching. The drum tracks arrived before the delivery date. We are very impressed by the quality and professionalism of the service and intend to use again in the future. Henry Jackson Melbourne Australia
Vintage Dusty Drum Tracks is an excellent drummer ,, i was satisfied and glad with his work and looking to work with him again in the future.
It was great working with dusty. Very quick and professional.
Top drummer. Very versatile. Replicated my reference track to a much higher quality with a warm authentic sound. Finished work ahead of schedule and easy to communicate. Hope to work again with Matt in the future.
He's a Winner. Brings his own vision to the mix (very tasteful, trendy) and at the same time has a highly collaborative spirit.
Fantastic Drummer. Great at mixing his drums as well. Definitely looking forward to work with him in the future.
Solid drum tracks, distinct sound, received the tracks quicker than expected, easy going guy, and I look forward to working with him in the future.
Really unique style and approach with a great warm tone. Matt has clearly spent time honing his voice which stands out from your average session drummer. Quick turn around in getting stems also which is a bonus !
