Deantoni Parks is a true pioneer


What can you do when you have nothing left to prove, not to the others but to yourself? You push yourself to the edge, looking for new limits to overcome.
This is what Deantoni Parks is doing. He has outshined pretty much every drummer on the planet every time he played in the past 20 years, and to this day he can put to shame every single drummer alive (and even the ones passed away). If you think that i'm exaggerating probably you never heard of Deantoni Parks, just because he's never made easy and predictable choices.
With Technoself he has set new boundaries that probably nobody will be able to reach, he's changing the game, just like with everything he did before.

Wow. That’s a lot of examples. Nevertheless, he does it very well, but playing keyboards & samplers while playing drums is nothing new.
 
Depends on what you consider his level. I think this guy is just as amazing only with a different style & strength.

I suggest you to do some research about Deantoni Parks if you don't know him (and there's nothing wrong with that, of course) because this guy is not one of the most talented and original drummers ever just because he plays with one hand the drums and with the other a keyboard and a sampler, but mostly for what he has done and accomplished in the past 20 years. I watched the video of the drummer you posted and there's nothing wrong if you like him more than Deantoni because it's a matter of taste ,BUT (and it's an huge but) Deantoni is on a whole another level...another GALAXY.
It's not even fair compare him to Deantoni, i take it as a joke.

Listen to this record when you have time

and look (and listen) to what he has done with Omar Rodriguez Lopez

I love Deantoni's playing! First heard him with KUDU and then Meshell Ndegeocello. Incredibly innovative player. Thanks for the links.
