  8. Review by Francis L.

    Igor is an absolute organized versatile drummer!! He has demonstrated skills in various styles of music. I most certainly enjoy working with him.

  9. Review by Piotr S.

    I have a really good experience collaborating with Igor on my song.
    It went really smooth, the initial recording was already really good, and Igor was very kind to apply a small change as a revision.

    I also think that the quality of the recording was good, and having separate microphones for the hi-hat, each of the 4 toms, and 2 snare mics (top+bottom) will be really useful for mixing the song.

    I strongly recommend Igor who anyone needs a professional drummer.
    Muito obrigado, Igor! :)
