Welcome, my name is Cristiano Castellitto and I'm professional drummer/producer based in London, UK.
I've been playing drums for many years and graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston. Along the years I've played all sorts of styles with many UK and US bands. At the moment I'm drumming for Swindle, GOGO, GrandUnionOrchestra and more.

I work in my studio in West London using only the best equipment. I love recording, editing and producing for bands and singers that need great quality live drum tracks. The process is very simple.

All you need to do is:

-Send me a rough mix of your song without drums (you can also send me a version of it with programmed drums, in case you have a specific drum beat you want)
-Make sure the version you send starts at 00.0
-Let me know what the exact BPM is

I'll record and I'll email you an MP3 of your song with the live drums

We'll discuss what needs to be changed, I'll re record the drums again and only once you're happy I'll send you all the tracks individually in Wav.

NB The more infos you give me about your song, the faster this process will be.

    Very professional and fast. He was much attentive to the direction I gave him. Great sound so I definitely recommend Cristiano!

    Working with Cristiano was incredibly easy. I sent him my track and he sent back a completed drum track on the exact day that he said he would. I asked for 1 revision and that was done immediately and is exactly what I wanted.

    I would highly recommend working with Cristiano. He is a true professional and a drummer with chops & good taste.

    It was cool working with Cristiano. He is very reactive and his music is great. I had received 4 perfect recorded drum tracks. He hoisted up my work to the best. I hope I will have the chance to work with him again and I would recommend Cristiano to anybody looking for great drums.

    Working with Cristiano was a pleasure. He is a skilled drummer, good with tempo and overall arrangement. Totally satisfied with his deliverables. He was too easy to communicate with and worked on my inputs seriously. I would consider him for my future assignments as well. Totally recommended.

    Cristiano played the drums on my recently released debut single "Summer Leaves" - he did an amazing job, adjusted well to any comments that the producer had, and the end result was a drum track that really compliments and elevates the song! Would definitely love to work with Cristiano again in the future. Recommended!

    Phenomenal!!! Awesome sense of timing, and great instincts. By far one of the best drummers I've ever had the pleasure of working with. I look forward to him being my "go to guy"!

  • Default-avatarover 1 year agoby

    After working with Cristiano for one track I decided to work with him for a full EP. He has a great sense of rhythm even in odd time signatures which makes the songs breath and flow nicely. I especially loved his hi-hat skills. In terms of communication Cristiano is very responsive and understanding. He's my number one choice from now on!
