Still in his early thirties, Guiliana, recognized by the New York Times as “a drummer around whom a cult of admiration has formed,” has earned international acclaim for his innovative and creative style.
Time Out London sums him up perfectly: “What happens when you add hard bop drum masters Elvin Jones and Art Blakey to a 1980s Roland 808 drum machine, divide the result by J Dilla and then multiply to the power of Squarepusher? Answer: Mark Guiliana.”
