Drummer and producer 25 years experienced in various musical generes and for many artists. Maximum attention at instruments, vintage, modern and electronic sounds. Great room sound and only top microphones. Collaborations with important progressive rock, experimental, and jazz groups, pop artists, songwriters and soundtrack composers.
I love record my drums and enhance the tracks of the artist I work with.
During this process for me is fundamental entering with mind and body in the mood of the song. I choose the right setup, with a extreme importance in the tuning, and on creating che right sound for the track. The choice and position of the microphones is also foundamental. If required I do drum arrangiaments for the tracks I have to play on.
I always sand an mp3, and if all is ok I send all the drum track up to 16 files.

Reviews (2)Endorse Dario Esposito
Ho lavorato con Dario per il mio ultimo cd con il progetto Traindeville ed è stata una bella collaborazione, Dario è molto professionale e siamo riusciti a intenderci e ad entrare in sintonia anche a distanza, gli ho spedito i brani da registrare e ci siamo confrontati sui possibili arrangiamenti di batteria. Il lavoro è stato ottimo, le batterie ben registrate, sono molto soddisfatto!!
Amazing drummer, stunning equipment, great sound
