Thanks for checking it out man! Yeah they're super cool.drums1225 said:Nice work, Alistair!
In recent years, I've come to really dig the J. Dilla style beats that have become prevalent in the live drumming of hip hop and many jazz drummers. While I doubt the masters of this groove style are/were thinking in 5s and 7s, it's a great way to quantify something that can be baffling to those of us who think and feel rhythm in the more common subdivisions.
Thanks for sharing.
Yeah they are. Awesome hats.drums1225 said:Hey, what hi hats are you using in the video? Are they 16" Byzance Extra Dry Med Thin hats? They sound great.
Also, something the "glitch", "drunk", or "drag" beat drummers do is keep the bass and snare drums straight, with only the hi hats "glitching", so they flam on the subdivisions. Also, "rushing" the snare, so it flams with a hi hat on a downbeat, or a combination of several different voices moving around rhythmically, as demonstrated here:&list=PLIZmJC5_t8M-fCLKMp-LsFbGD6zo9v9jg&index=11
All in all, a very cool effect, and a bit of a brainbuster, but again, I think these guys are doing it naturally, by ear, due to the fact that they grew up listening to this feel.
