What is your approach to drumming?
"When it comes to drumming, my approach has always been to not think like a drummer, as I cannot for the life of me call myself one (laughs). I believe that the most important aspect is the song itself. It's not about showcasing fancy rudiments or intricate fills; it's about serving the song and making it come alive. While technique is crucial, I firmly believe that drumming IQ is what matters the most. It's about understanding the musical context, knowing when to hold back and when to push forward, and making intuitive decisions that enhance the overall composition. Ultimately, it's the drumming intelligence that allows me to connect with the music and bring out its true essence."
Which drummers inspired you?
When it comes to drumming influences, I have been inspired by a variety of exceptional drummers. Lars Ulrich from Metallica has always amazed me with his unique and unconventional approach. His ability to add weight to a beat by deviating from the standard and his impeccable snare placement are truly remarkable.
Zbigniew "Inferno" Prominski from Behemoth possesses an astonishing drumming IQ. While he is renowned for his speed, it's his intricate tom rolls and tasteful fills that have truly inspired me. I can only dream of playing as fast as he does!
Zach Gibson from Shit Life/ex-The Black Dahlia Murder embodies the perfect fusion of metal and hardcore elements in his drumming. He is not only a phenomenal drummer but also a phenomenal person.
Roy Bates from Cold As Life, along with Yuval Dekel from Irate, have a deep understanding of the heavy backbeat that sets them apart from 99% of hardcore drummers. Their ability to hit the snare slightly behind the beat creates an aggressive feel that, when combined with the accentuated china cymbal, can ignite a riot at any venue.
Lastly, Kenny Aronoff is an iconic figure in the drumming world. His tap-dancing on the hi-hat in 80's Mellencamp songs showcases pure groove and power. He is a true legend who has left an indelible mark on the music industry.
How did the idea for a MIDI Groove pack come around?
"The concept for the MIDI Pack stemmed from my personal experiences and creative vision. I've always had a clear idea of how the drums should sound in my songs, which sometimes led to overwhelming drummers with a multitude of ideas. When I write songs, I prefer to maintain a focused workflow without constantly switching between the guitar and the drum kit. Having a deep understanding of how I want the drum parts to be, including specific elements like back beats, breakdowns, and blast beats, I decided to simplify my own process and create a comprehensive library of go-to grooves.
By compiling this MIDI Pack, I aimed to make my own life easier while also providing a valuable resource for others. My hope is that these carefully crafted grooves will prove useful for fellow musicians and enhance their creative endeavors."
Who should use MIDI Groove packs?
"For songwriters seeking to streamline their process and place a greater emphasis on crafting the actual song or riffs, I highly recommend considering one of these MIDI Packs. By utilizing these resources, you can significantly reduce the time spent on programming and instead channel your energy into the creative aspects of your music.
Additionally, if you're interested in improving your programming skills, exploring grooves performed by a human drummer and observing how they translate onto the piano roll can be tremendously beneficial. This allows you to gain a deeper understanding of the intricacies and nuances of drumming, which can ultimately enhance your programming abilities and make your compositions feel more authentic.
Whether you're looking to simplify your workflow or elevate your programming prowess, these MIDI Packs offer a valuable solution. Grab one today and witness your songwriting process become more efficient and rewarding. Go make music!"
