Default Dan Mayo (amazing drummer from Israel)


Dan Mayo (born 1990) is an Israeli drummer, composer and educator, best known as the drummer of TATRAN,a power-trio with Tamuz Dekel on guitar and Offir Benjaminov on the bass.

This guy is too damn good to be true, i don't even know how to describe his style, take a look at some of his best videos and judge by yourself:

Dan Mayo - Romance in the Emptiness
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUShJcz2kyU
TATRAN - Shore (Live)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTktLlvA68o
TATRAN - WW III (Album Version)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNudxZEIfqU
TATRAN - The Utilitarian
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7STfkB-jRM
Performance Spotlight: Dan Mayo
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iC9GfXNWeRQ

And take a look at all his other videos here (believe me, is time well spent):

Great chops, but way too much noodling for me. I didn't get very far into the first 2 videos. His playing is astonishing, but not engaging.

Okay, I watched a little bit of the Utilitarian. Again, I recognize everyone's technical skill, it's just not the kind of material I enjoy listening to.

Ditto. Not very motivated by this whole spazzed out style in recent years.

No, they may not be. It's called *personal taste*. You may not really dig bands that I do. Thats how it actually works.

Good for him for not doing what everyone else is.

He's got a lot of ideas, his brain is firing on all 8 for sure.

And it's not to a click!

I like it for that alone, not even mentioning his "off the beaten path" ideas, the effortless flow from his mind to his hands, and his scary execution.

It's great to see someone do this. Commercially speaking, I can't see it taking off, but on the creative side of things, it's inspiring.

Cool stuff, thanks.

Edit: watched a few more, this guy's got it going on.

Same here. Great technical ability. Just don't want to listen to it.

Some cool stuff with the band, not exactly my taste or what I would choose to listen to but kudos to a fantastic drummer and great band. Like jam band music stepped up a notch.
