” Drum Overdose “
When it comes to my Hip Hop production I have always prided myself on my drum programming…While some producers are content with stiff, hollow sounding drums – I have always went the extra mile to ensure that my percussion is thick, polyrhythmic, and unpredictable…
Here is a fun fact about me that you might not be aware of – Even though I currently do not own a drum kit, I do know how to play the drums..I’m no MAX ROACH but Mr. HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD can hold his own somewhat….
Anyway, when I’m looking for drum inspiration I throw on fly shit like this to rock out with……BLAM, BLAM, BLAMZ…
“SUONANDO LA BATTERIA MODERNA (MODERN DRUMS, A PRACTICAL GUIDE) Lp by TULLIO DE PISCOPO. Original Italian pressing on VEDETTE label (VPA 8179), from 1974. Infamous solo debut recording from Italy’s premier funky drummer. Tullio was an indemand studio player used for key Italian Library / funk and jazz related sessions during the early ’70s. He played drums for Sante Palumbo / Mirageman on the Thunder & Lightning session / Valdambrini – Piana Quintet on the Afrodite Lp / Barigozzi on the Woman’s Colors Library and Vedette label owner and electronics pioneer, Armando Sciascia used certain rhythm trax from Suonando La Batteria for the Violin Reactions Library. Absolutely killer beats / drum loops and percussion sounds from freestyle funk / breakbeat / proto hip hop to punishing samba and afro cuban jazz. The Coagulation track from his debut single (released 2 years before) is given an incredible makeover into an alternative, even funkier theme called MEDIUM ROCK.”
I like my pops was a drummer I’ve somewhat always loved drums you’re on a roll and ready for combat positive beams zalute
