Not one but two amaz­ingly tal­ented cover stars this month…

Rhythm - - WELCOME! - Chris Burke, Ed­i­tor Chris.Burke@fu­turenet.com

As I’m sure you all know, Beanie is the ex­tro­vert be­hind the kit for one of the world’s big­gest dance mu­sic acts, Rudi­men­tal. He’s a master of lay­ing down solid EDM and d’n’b grooves be­hind the pro­ducer-led out­fit, keep­ing the beats tight but the party mov­ing. His beau­ti­ful and unique tie-dyed Tama Star­clas­sic maple kit con­trasts with the mag­nif­i­cent beast of aTama Su­per­star Hyper­drive kit that be­longs to our other cover star… Oli Wise­man’s been out tour­ing with for­mer Rudi­men­tal singer and now pop sen­sa­tion in her own right, Anne-Marie – with Beanie swapping kit for bass du­ties in rhyth­mic part­ner­ship with Oli on a gig sup­port­ing Ed Sheeran around the world. In our whop­ping cover fea­ture from page 30, we find out how the pair get along as mu­si­cians, what such huge gigs call for from the drum­mer and how they’ve in­te­grated elec­tron­ics into their set-ups to cre­ate a big, big sound.And if this whets your ap­petite for dip­ping your own toes into the world of hy­brid elec­tronic and acous­tic drum­ming, we bring you a big fea­ture on all things hy­brid – from where to start to more ad­vance set-ups and ap­pli­ca­tions. From page 44!

Be­ing a drum­mer on aWest End mu­si­cal re­quires a cer­tain skillset, and in our new col­umn in as­so­ci­a­tion with ACM , Pro Cor­ner, Toby Drum­mond shares the ben­e­fits of his ex­pe­ri­ence dep­ping on some ma­jor shows, Need more?
