My eclectic ode to video gaming!!! Enjoy!
A few instruments evoke our instincts to move like the drum.I’d like to welcome you to trap set nirvana Here is a collection of some of my most favourite drum performances from some amazing drummers over the years.
I have put this mix together paying particular attention to the impact and uniqueness of each song. For example the amazing drum break by the master teacher Harvey Mason featured in Weather Reports’ Sweetnighter which spawned a seminal influential hit in the broken beat movement after it was used by Afronaught or the now almost forgotten gem by Starcrost’s Paul Pearcy.
Obviously this journey is partly inspired by the recent great film Whiplash, which I found immensely entertaining. Enjoy.
Feels like taking a casual stroll in the streets at 03:00 AM – barefoot!
