KJ SAWKA of Pendulum
Seeing Kevin Sawka on the drums is the only way to believe the hype. He can play the most complex of jungle, drum'n'bass and breakbeats utilizing no loops and no extended samples only his two hands and two feet. If you can catch him in the right moment live, at a show, or in a studio session you'll witness him perform each and every 808 bass kick, snare slap, and compressed highhat tick himself, in real-time.
"I'd like to be able to play like that all the time, however, live, I want to give the people the fully-produced, complex sound I'm envisioning, so I not only play the drums, but I manually trigger the basslines, melodies, riffs and now even the light show and projections with my drums so it's a lot harder to focus on playing every single little single sound with my sticks. But it's like I'm playing even more with my sticks lately, not less."
