Quite a while ago I did another song by these rad dudes, Freestyler.. and it was one of the first times where I felt I covered a song that hadn't really been covered on the drums before. These covers have always been a creative outlet more than anything, and doing Freestyler as creatively as I could (at the time!) and seeing the response, really opened up my perspective to try playing drums along to any and everything I possibly wanted to. Rad feeling.
So.. in continuing this approach, I took another Bomfunk MC's track, and tried giving it a unique spin as well. I stumbled onto the groove in the first verse and was immediately amped about it, LOVE the vibe between the two sets of hats! I also borrowed from another cover of mine (Tik Tok) for one of the B-sections, altered the groove slightly, but the pattern between the bell and the snare is pretty much the same.
All in all really happy with this, such such a fun song to play with! There's just something SO rad about writing drums for something that didn't have drums in it before you started playing. Awesome feeling.
