    Marito is one of the most humble people I know. On top of that he has great ears and musicality. I've worked with him wearing different hats and and in all I've always been amazed by his performances. You can't go wrong with this guy!

    I've had the pleasure and fortune to have recorded sessions and toured with Marito. In the literal sense, he is a top level, one-of-a-kind, multi-genre MASTER of the drums. He's capable of playing anything one could ever need on a session of any genre. He's a true professional. No ego, no bullshit, no drags. He's always open and to try any ideas that serve the music best—both musically and tastefully. Anyone will be beyond satisfied and blown away with the results they'll get from Marito's playing, his efficiency and the super high-quality drums sounds he records at his studio. 10 stars!

    Nothing brings me more joy than working with Marito! Not just an amazing drummer and producer, but an overall great human being. Easy to bounce ideas off of and always receptive to trying out my ideas and will often suggest even better ways to improve on the ideas. He always takes notes well and without ego. 1000% recommend hiring Marito for any of your projects!

    Marito is a world class drummer with an amazing feel and creative sense. He also has some of the best gear available and recording/mixing knowledge to pair with. He's very organized in his work and a wonderful person to work with. I absolutely recommend him!

    Marito is an extremely accomplished and talented world class musician. Selling out venues as a headliner in Europe and abroad, his drumming and percussion skills are second to NONE! Not only are his drum and percussion skills incredible, but his engineering and production skills are also world class. Using the latest equipment, his studio has captured the work of hundreds of professional musicians all nurtured by his patience and willingness to do everything and anything to get the best possible sound quality in every production. I HIGHLY recommend Marito for all of your recording needs!

  6. Review by Josh G. Bowman - Mix Engineer

    Marito is an incredible drummer, and has a really well equipped studio with tons of a-list gear, amazing pre amps, compressors, mics etc. Large selection of drums, great at tuning them, and is also a crazy percussionist. I highly recommend him for any of my clients who need drums or percussion added to their songs. He's also super nice and easy going.. and a versatile player. A+ would recommend!
