A Fistful of Drummers contains 36 drum tracks ranging from 82-147 bpm of vintage funk. With a stylistic blast to the past, it contains covers of classic funk beats including Rare Groove, Jabs Funk, Old Soul, Bombastic 70s Rock and early Hip-Hop, with a splash of Disco thrown in as well.
Performed by Nasser Bouzida (from the cult Blow Up recording stable) and Jim ‘the Lick’ Kelly, with guest appearances from legendary reggae drummer Style Scott and Jan Kincaid of Brand New Heavies fame, A Fistful of Drummers boasts a stellar line-up of pedigree drumming talent. Vintage Ludwig and Gretsch kits were used with heavy skins, as well as vintage Zildjian hi-hats and snares by Ludwig, Rogers and Slingerland. Recorded on a 1970s Neve desk, 2” analogue tape and beautiful vintage microphones and outboard, every track packs a punch of the best quality funk drum sounds.
