I can't say enough good things about this recording service. We were able to use everything, like a fine veal. We used the tendons, jowls, eyeballs, brains, tongue. All parts of the calf were useful. Our album turned out way better than it otherwise would have. DJ and Travis gave us the meat. - Dan Sartain
I used DJ's drum service on two different occasions while I was living in New Zealand. I sent a total of six songs over, trusting DJ and Travis to do their thing, but also grateful for their promise to re-record anything that didn't quite suit my taste. I was totally impressed with the results of everything. It was such a great experience for me across the board.
From the start, DJ and Travis made me feel that my work was important to them. And I know they've got lots going on, but I felt like I became a priority and that they wanted me to be 100% happy with their work.
Coolest of all was how thoughtfully DJ played. He focused on each song and found the sweet spots in each one. I'm thinking he must have spent a bunch of time listening to each song up front and crafting his parts. If not, I don't even want to know. His drums convince me that he was doing way more than bashing it out. His energy level was awesome, top notch, killer. No one would doubt that he doesn't know when to pull back or even when not to play, but how nice that he did the same for me! On the songs where I had only supplied click track and no sample drums, I loved hearing the completely unexpected intros and arrangements -- things I never would have come up with, but totally made the song into something much better than it originally was. In fact, I got to say: I prefer the songs that he worked out raw, with no sample drums from me. DJ is the man.
I'd also like to thank Travis for making me feel comfortable with the technical aspect. He made it easy for me to send and receive files, answering any questions I had. His engineering and producing skills really complement DJ's drumming. The drums sounded great.
I'll book these guys on my next project and look forward to working with them again!

We were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with DJ on our song "Life Of Sin." Not only a great drummer, but he and Travis also treated our song with as much thoughtfulness as we did. We found them to be easy to talk with and open to our input. The drum tracks that they delivered to us were amazing, and really punched up our song. DJ's drumming skills combined with Travis' knowledge of production makes a great combination. Highly recommended!"

Working with DJ and Travis was fantastic! Great drum tracks and great production.
They took the songs to a whole new level and they are really nice guys too.
Working long distance was flawless. The tracks drop right into the mix as if DJ was in the room right from the beginning and Travis was on the board the whole time.
