Alright friends, I’m very new to the “dubstep drum cover” scene, but I have always really enjoyed watching other drummers cover popular dubstep songs. Because I had so much playing drums to this, I decided to make two dubstep drum covers! Something that I really enjoy about dubstep is that is is so rhythmic and drum heavy. I really think people connect with that style of music because it focus’ so much on the beat of the song. (Just another reason why I think drums are the best instrument.) But the cool part about how rhythmic the synths are is that you can pretty much follow every synth lead with a drum part and it pretty much makes you feel like you are playing a 4 minute long drum fill. Which is awesome.
I decided to cover two songs by Skrillex because they both have very different feels. “All Is Fair In Love and Brostep” is a cool song because it focus’ on being really intense throughout the whole song. It has huge hits followed by really cool breaks in the song. It definitely follows the idea of having “breakdowns” which can be a lot of fun to play!
But “Recess” has more of a grooveto it. The song holds much more of a “pocket” beat and opens itself up for some really fun triplet fills! I had a lot of fun with this one.
I hope you all had as much fun watching the videos as I did making them! Feel free to let me know what you think!
