Dominik Burkhalter aka the mighty dom, drummer and producer from Switzerland, is one of the most versatile and sought after drummers in Europe. Being from a younger generation, he’s not only a jazz drummer by heart and attitude but also a modernist to the core – playing breakbeats and grooves with a precision that rivals Swiss clockworks, as one can hear in bands and artists like Grand Pianoramax, Aphrotek, BLIGG, Meshell Ndegeocello, Asphalt Jungle, Tim Levebvre, Donny McCaslin, VAULT, Seven, Adrian Stern, Christy Doran, Mathieu Michel, Hendrix Ackle, Don Li, Mike Ladd, Ambrose Akinmusire, Eivind Aarset, Black Cracker, Billy Cobham, Phase One, Emel, Brandy Butler, Roli Mosimann, Ingrid Lukas, Jessy Howe, Eliyah Reichen, Tom Sauter, Ralph Alessi, LEXX, Gregoire Moiret, Domenico Ferrari, The Raveners, New Bag and many more…

Dominik is currently on tour with Swiss Superstar BLIGG.

He excessively pushes a musical style that defies any categorization except that it’s beyond jazz, intelligent and loud. Burkhalter performed all over Europe & Asia, as well as in the US, in legendary venues like the Filmore in San Francisco, the Roxy in LA and House of Blues in Vegas and at Jazzfestivals like Montreux, Vienne, SXSW and countless others.

In his free time, he’s offering mixing and recording services in his fully equipped drum-studio and as a professor he teaches rhythm and drums at the University of Arts and Music in Lucerne, Switzerland.
