3 ReviewsEndorse Diogo Mota Drummer
Diogo record the tracks for a Black Metal project for our band VACIØ. It was an honor worked with him, it was easy and fast.
Some difficult parts was perfectly performed. Also the ideas he got for many parts was awesome, creating a perfect atmosphere of the music.
For sure next time I will hire him, to get the best drum tracks. 100% recommend
Diogo worked and recorded the tracks for our band No More Poets first album and its a joy to hear the sound he got. Being a hard rock band with powerful tracks and some quiet ballads, it requires powerfull and soft drumming, and Diogo nail it on both.
He is a great professional who puts all of your skils in everything he does. The passion and dedication of his work can be heard in every track he records. His creativity is also noticed as he always bring very nice ideas to the table
It was a pleasure to work with Diogo, and I certainly be wokring with him again. I highly recommend!
Diogo recorded an internationally acclaimed full-length album at our studio and plenty other drum session jobs.
Always professional and dedicated to his craft, he's capable of bringing your drum lines to another level of creativity and also put up a solid and consistent performance, which is essential in the studio.
While we worked mainly with metal genres that require ridiculous amounts of speed and technique (which he delivers with ease), he's versatile enough to play anything you throw at him.
Waste no time and hire the man to lay down some great drum tracks for you.
