the remote drum recording service with groove.

WHAT IS REMOTE DRUM RECORDING?

Hi, my name is Paul and welcome to my remote drum recording site!

If you’re looking for live recorded drums that sound and feel great to slot perfectly into your songs and compositions, look no further than Orangedrumtracks.

The benefits of this type of service mean that there’s no need to look for a separate studio or engineer and incur extra costs that your budget won’t allow for. Instead, welcome this simple and easy solution to owning great sounding live drums that could be yours in as little as 48hrs from start to finish.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Each and every song is significantly unique and therefore drum tracks and parts can vary hugely in style and complexity.

Subsequently my prices reflect that uniqueness and can typically range from anywhere between £150 – £350 per track depending on what’s needed and on the type of end usage.

Be rest assured, there will definitely be a package suitable for ‘your’ budget.

DIFFERENT TO THE REST

THE STUDIO

My studio is based in Battersea Park, South London and is a medium sized room nonetheless with a small but distinct amount of ambience and lots of vibe.

I have a great quality microphone collection that is regularly being expanded upon.

Currently these are run through high quality Audient ASP880 / iD22 and two Neve style Preamps that have been hand picked to ensure your remote drum recording is top notch.

I regularly recording with up to 10 channels of drums which I configure into 8 close mics and 2 overheads but can add a room mic upon request.

I’m open to different microphone configurations though, so am flexible depending on what your song / drum track needs.

NEED MUSICIANS?

I exist as part of a large network of London musicians and singers, so can also potentially fix musicians for sessions in the studio with or without me on drums. So, if you are stuck and ever in need of extra personnel, just ask!

Why put up with lifeless and uninspiring drum tracks, please do get in touch today with any enquiries that you may have.

WHY ME?

My heart lies in groove. A definite backbeat drummer with a love for James Brown and all things that groove. My approach to funk and soul, hip hop, drum and bass, rock and house is one and the same.

The guitar opened the musical door for Paul and despite also being a keen bass player, drums are Paul’s true passion. With a blistering groove and a backbeat that could kill, he has become  the firm favourite for many and similarly well known for his versatility. He has over the years scored gigs with everyone from Labrinth, Sigma and the late Don Blackman to currently being part of the rhythmical backbone for Alison Moyet, (x)Propaganda and Josh Milan.

“I developed a late interest in guitar music but have always had an ear for well written songs. Growing up in the 80s I was listening to everything from U2 to Chaka Khan, Afrika Bambaataa and Kraftwerk to Anita Baker, Toto and James Brown, so invariably developed an eclectic taste.”

Happy clients!
