Musician from São Paulo - Brazil with a lot of studio experience. From recording, arranging to mixing. My aim is to be able to offer exactly what you imagine for your music. I am sure we can make something out special. I can guarantee a high-quality work, great sound and performance. Feel free to get in touch and tell me about your project.
Hello I am Filipe. I have accompanied several artists playing the drums and I have had the opportunity to play with many important names of the Brazilian music scene such as Elza Soares, Mano Brown, Liniker, Carlos Dafé, Toni Tornado, Luís Vagner, Margareth Menezes, Criolo, Tássia Reis, Mateus Aleluia ,among others.
I am also the drummer of Aláfia band, a very relevant independent musical band from São Paulo that carries an Afro-Futuristic musical language, which comes from the mixture of an urban sound, inspired by funk, mixed with the elements of Afro-Brazilian music as the main foundation.
We are a ten years old band on the road, four released albums (which I have played drums, recorded and also co-produced the last two of them: "SP não é Sopa (2017)" and "Liturgia Samba Soul (2019)"
Surely, my greatest musical influence is Brazilian music and its diverse rhythms (bossa nova, samba, samba-funk, baião) and besides them, American black music such as soul, funk, hip hop and jazz.
I own a studio where I can record the drums with high sound quality, great microphones and preamps like universal audio, orban, ssl, avalon, neumann, camelion labs, re-20, akg d112. I have been using Pro Tools and Logic ProX with a wide variety of plugins. I also like to explore electronic beats with my MPC Live.
