Excellent! Thank you :)
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!
Perfect sound, feeling, ideas and and a very nice person.
Very fast work with the perfect feel for the song.
Not my last one !
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!
