First Hip Hop Recording


Senior Member
After spending the majority of my time playing the drums to lock rock and metal bands, I've been in a party hip-hop or rap rock band the past few months. This is the first song I've recorded with them. Give it a listen if you'd like.

It's been cool switching up styles. This gives me a good excuse to use a splash/mini china stack to use for accents or in fills. Unfortunately when we shot the video, the setting necessitated some cloths to dampen the drums, so I couldn't play exactly as in the recording. But even that proved to be a good lesson in minimalist, snare and hats drumming.
