Deantoni Parks
I can't believe there isn't a thread for this guy yet. He was doing the live-drums-DnB/Breakbeat/Jungle thing years ago! And he doesn't even do that much anymore, he's patented this new style that makes him sound like a Robot-Roland 808 (in a really cool, organic way). Check out Kudu, or better yet, the new Meshell Ndegeocello album, The World Has Made Me the Man of My Dreams (check out the track Article 3). Also, now that she's gone from Gene Lake, to Abe Laboriel, to Sean Rickman, to Chris Dave, and now to Parks, (apologies to any I've forgotten), the truth is out-- Meshell knows how to pick the absolute best in the biz...

Ya Deantoni is killing. I went to Berklee with him, and I remeber him with Kudu down there, it was hip

Re: Deantoni Parks
Deantoni is the MAN! Him and Adam Deitch are probably my two favorite young/modern drummers. I'm not so crazy about the new stuff D is doing (I respect it, it's just not my sound), but the old Kudu from earlier this decade is sooooo DOPE! I still listen to that stuff regularly.

Re: Deantoni Parks
I had a Kudu album given to me a while back. I didn't realize he played for Meshell N'degiacello. Which album? I'll google it up right after this I'm sure.

I forgot about Kudu, I gotta go back and give them a listen.

Re: Deantoni Parks
Unequivocally a new voice. D's a game-changer. Inspired me to rethink the way I relate to my drumset.

as part of Vato Negro (w/ Juan Alderete and Omar Rodriguez Lopez of The Mars Volta):

w/ the criminally under-appreciated Me'shell N'degeocello:

Featured in flabmagazine this month: http://specialedition.flabmag.com/fe...eantoni-parks/

Deantoni is also running for a grant to do a sound installation in a series of galleries in London. If you guys could vote for him, that'd be rad : http://www.arttakeslondon.com/portfo...=DeantoniParks

Bumping this for the new Volta album coming out.

He's one of the most solid drummers I've ever heard. I love how he can play solid either around the beat or on the beat.

Re: Deantoni Parks
Algorithm beat me to it, but yeah, he's with the Mars Volta now. He's been getting a lot of hate cuz Thomas Pridgeon's gone, but Deantoni is just as good. Can't wait for the new album!

Re: Deantoni Parks
Since this was bumped... I think these are really definitive of his style-
