I've been in the music business for 15 years. Over the years I had a chance to play versatile genres. I played more than 700 live gigs. I played everything from big arenas to weddings and small clubs. Now, all my strengths and passion are focused on studio drumming and getting the best sound. I constantly explore new sounds, new microphone setups,
I will record drums in a professional studio and send you wav files with the perfect signal. If you wish I can mix and master the drums.
Please contact me before ordering so we can discuss your song. In case you don't have a clear picture of drum parts I can record a few demos takes before recording a final take.

7 ReviewsEndorse Denis Loncaric
Denis recorded some of my funky songs, his playing reminds me on Ash Soan. I like his simple grooves and the sound he is able to get is so amazing.
I am always there to support Dennis, he recorded two of my albums and everything went smooth as hell
Denis is our go to guy when we need solid drums for our rock band, he always do the work well and on time
Perfect sounding drummer, with Dennis I don't get overplaying and unnecessary chops but the right kind of studio playing.
Denis is my man when I need live drums, I was more than happy to leave him a positive review here.
I'm very pleased with Denis's work so far, I will be using his services in the future, way to go man
Denis is my long term ally, he always delivers on time and achieves the right sound for the song. I'm glad to see him expanding.
