Reviews (1)Endorse Daniel Abanico
Nice drummer and a nice audio engineer together. His working style is very subtle and accurate. Maybe sometimes a little bit too strict :P The most important point why I like his mix is he knows how to sound the drum on a mix which I think is more than important because all musics are concerned with beats. Very recommendable!!
