    I hired him to create a jazz track and just felt a little misled. I sent several reference songs, and he sent me his previous work, which all included multiple instruments. I wasn't informed prior to ordering that my order only included the drum track, so I was a little disappointed to receive only that, as the proposal details read "4 minutes long jazz beat of your choice". The drums sound nice, but it was a bit pricey for drums only.

    Alessandro brings a great live feeling to the tracks. He is a fine, perceptive musician and producer who lends immediacy to distance collaboration. Excellent work, highly recommended.

    Great Job! Alessandro made an amazing job by recording his drums for my music project in New York. I really appreciated his fast communication and really positive attitude. I highly suggest Alessandro for his high professional work ethic.

    Working with Alessandro was amazing. Fast answers and professional attitude. I required him to play my tune that had the drum part entirely written and he nailed it. Also I really enjoyed the sound that he can deliver. I'm sure I will hire him again for more work!

    Thanks,
    Enrique

    Alessandro created a theme tune for our company's podcast Literature from Finland. He was extremely receptive and understanding, and flexibly offered us several arrangements modified according to our feedbacks. He understood very well the main idea of the podcast and eventually presented us a subtle, atmospheric tune that matches perfectly with podcast's mood and our company's general spirit. He also voluntarily offered to help with the post-production works, and gave valuable advices to the novices of the field. I would heartily recommend collaborating with Alessandro or hear him play!
