    Rainer is my first choice, when I need drum tracks.
    His playing is always supportive for the song and he's got the feeling for any style. Beyond that he's a very inspiring and interesting musical personality.
    Highly recommendation!

    Rainer understands every kind of music and interprets your song very sensitively.
    His playing on the drums is always reliable and sensitive.
    He delivers drum samples on a high level and everyone can use them in his production in the best possible way.
    He's the guy you're looking for!

    Rainer is an awesome drummer that gets into the music. He's not only playing a drum track but also he puts a lot of professional experience, creativity and feeling for the song into it. This very friendly and reliable guy delivered the perfect base for my album within a few days. Not "only" a drummer... a musician!
