Sérgio Luiz Filho on SoundBetter

Hello, my name is Sérgio.I specialize in remote sessions and offer incredible sounding percussion and drum tracks at affordable rates, let's talk a little about your project. The swing is guaranteed!

I am a session drummer/percussionist currently living in São Paulo, Brazil. I've toured all over the country and recorded several Brazilian artists of the most varied genres, from rap to samba. These experiences have brought me a wealth of technical and intellectual knowledge, enough to make me a flexible and intuitive musician and professional.

I offer quality recorded custom drum and percussion tracks, beat arrangements and soundtrack production. I own a great variety of percussive instruments, with sonorities from all over the world, plus three drum kits with different sizes and materials, besides the electronic devices, like the MPC 500 Akai and several keyboards. I can travel and play in the most diverse styles, with comfort and content. From the genres with more percussive characteristics such as Latin and Afro Brazilian music, to dope Drum'Bass grooves.

As a producer, I can mood-up soundtracks with drums and percussions. I also count with a variety of great musicians to participate on my tracks.

The price of recordings is stipulated according to the number of instruments used and the duration of the track. The prices described in the profile are approximate and they are negotiable.

Interview with Sérgio Luiz Filho

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: Today, in addition to the music production work I do in my home sutdio, I work as a session drummer and percussionist at the Wiro studio in São Paulo, recording everything from samba, funk, soul, jazz, to afrobeat, salsa, hip hop and pop music. As a drummer I'm doing tour with the composer Gabriel Martins and with the Trio Vai, both projects are instrumental. As a percussionist I'm releasing an album with Big Pacha, a full-fledged psychedelic funk band, as well as playing in the Brazilian regional band Bloco Banda ou Coisa Parecida, with a completely carnival setlist. I also play in 2 hip hop projects where I do the live beats with an MPC 500 and a MicroKorg synth, they are called Racco and Cansei de Ser Jazzy.

  3. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  4. A: I highly recommend the work of producer Thomaz Bonatto, and bassist Nino Nascimento. Both are my friends, both of life and work. They are very creative and insightful.

  5. Q: What's your typical work process?

  6. A: My typical work process starts with listening to the customer's tracks and with the most effective communication possible to understand the client vision for that production and what he expects from it. From that, I start working on the recording in which I present a preview with three revisions at no cost. I follow the approach "less is more", always seeking to add to the sound of the band. I can play three notes in the whole song, or create massive grooves with a percussive arsenal if the customer so desires.

  7. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  8. A: In fact, they inspire my joy and good mood every day, beyond the prime motivations of always evolving musically and spiritually. I feel very privileged by the great mentors I had the opportunity to meet during my musical journey. Incredible people like Nene Realcino Lima, André Marques, Bob Wyatt, Sizão Machado, Daniel and Vitor Alcântara and many others who teach at Souza Lima & Berklee College here in São Paulo.

  9. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  10. A: As a drummer and percussionist, I end up working with a wide range of genres. But undoubtedly the biggest demands are focused on regional Brazilian music and hip hop, both in gigs and recording.

  11. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  12. A: Energy and excellent sound quality.
