Jerry Given - Recording Artist
"Juan is a highly skilled drummer to whom you can entrust drums of any style.
He has a very good sense of the atmosphere your song needs.”
Jerry Given - Singer & Songwriter
Emile Bode - Music Producer
"You always have some kind of expectation or reference in mind when you ask someone to play anything LIVE on your track.
Then you hope that what is supplied is of added value, or at the very least more than you expected.
In my situation, it's not always an easy operation because my drum recordings are frequently a collection of rhythms that must be replaced by a single drum track.
Juan never ceases to amaze me in this regard. No, not the conventional 'I played exactly what I heard for you,' rather Juan interprets what he hears and performs it accordingly.
As a result, the track has even more flair, character, and dynamics than it did when it was first constructed. Do you want your music to have more personality or stand out? Then I would strongly recommend Juan because of his drumming mastery and vision. His work is always of the quality and flexibility that I would expect from a professional musician; good! And the fact that he is a producer himself makes a significant difference because he understands exactly what you mean when you say you want or are looking for something special."

"When it comes to expressing what it's like to work with Juan, the first and most essential thing I'd want to emphasize is the sheer sincerity with which he treats everything he does and everyone he works with. Juan is the real deal. Period. This creates a secure and healthy environment in which you are free to be... you. That's all there is to it. An environment in which your imagination is given every opportunity to flourish.
Second, being a passionate creative himself, Juan has the unique ability to bring out the best in you, whether you're in the studio with him behind the console or performing on stage with him behind his drumkit.
Things happen whenever I make music with him. Things that I could never have thought of with only my own imagination. When these things "emerge," they seem to me to be the result of the connection I feel between Juan, myself, and whatever is being made at the time.
It isn't merely a matter of "sounding good." It's all about getting to the heart of the matter and bringing it out.
Finally, I'd want to call attention to his capacity to translate certain aesthetic conceptions into whatever has to be done with a piece of music in terms of sound, arrangement, or performance, based on his extraordinary artistic understanding.
He certainly brings a wealth of expertise to the table, and his mastery of the instrument and production skills require no explanation; if you listen closely, they clearly speak for themselves. However, in my experience, none of this has ever stopped Juan from being open to new ideas, new techniques, and artistic research.
So, whether it's drumtracks-on-demand that Juan delivers to fit right into your concept as if he's always been a part of your band, or working on a project that you're both producing, the results of our collaboration have consistently exceeded my boldest expectations in all of my years of experience with Juan. He, among others, has played a significant role in my development as an artist.
Oh and did I also mention that he's always up for a good laugh? You're going to find out!"

"Juan's drum recordings are consistently of excellent quality. All of the hits are on point, and the groove is in place. There's also no shortage of inventiveness. With the multitracks, including good room mics, a fat drum sound is quickly made."
Arthur Antoine Theunissen - Studio-CUBE
Paul Rosenboom - Singer & Songwriter
"I was looking for a drummer that could offer a good drum part for our Christmas single “Oh Holy Night”.
Juan van Emmerloot was recommended to me by a musician friend. Reaching out to him I didn’t regret…the track was delivered immediately, and the result was, of course, 'outstanding' and a perfect complement to the rest of the arrangement."
Paul Rosenboom - La Familia
Jan Willem Hoekstra - Pianist
"We intended to play several of Jason Robert Brown's songs at our musical school DAPA (Dutch Academy of Performing Arts) long before any instrumental music tracks of his songs were available".
One of our co-workers tipped us off to someone who might be able to assist us from his home studio.
The tight, funky drum recordings that resulted served as the foundation for subsequent collaborations, including complete theatrical shows in which I blended my piano parts from home with Juan's drums and percussion from his studio. And... it doesn't only sound good all of the time; the excellent communication and huge range of possibilities for expanding to additional artists or even complete productions keep you wanting more. It's a must-have for any artist who, like myself, doesn't have access to a real drummer at home."
