What do you want out of a rhythm section/drums?

So, there's live drums, electronic/programmed drums, ambient music with no drums, syncopated rhythms, electronic drums played with a live drummer (a la Zach Hill in Death Grips), crazy rhythms, simple 4/4 dance rhythms, IDM/breakbeat freakouts, jazz drumming, improvisation, subby 808 drums, dry live drums, etc…

Lots of aspects in drums/rhythm/percussion sections. What do you want from the music you listen to/like the most? What's IMPORTANT to you when you listen to drums?

(Also let's not forget that drums aren't necessarily the only parts in a rhythm section, either.)


Kind of a /DG/ Drum General kind of deal, but mainly about what you want out of drums/good examples of drum or rhythm sections, etc.

That they are expressive, tasteful, and well played.

This basically means that 90% of drums in music end up being very boring.

Death Grips makes some cool music for sure but Zach Hill's drumming is really annoying. It's hardly technically proficient, instead relying on a blur of single-stroke rolls that so often fall off tempo that it moves past the point of "tastefully in and out of time, creating a nice pocket" to "uncomfortably missing the beat."

He's cute though.

elaborate? What do you mean by that, exactly?

That was easy. It actually happens twice right here.

I always look for new and interesting beats.
technical skill is nice too, but not always necessary

I like stuff like this where the beat is not just the same as everything else

Do you guys prefer live drums, even if there are electronic beats there already? (like some hip-hop stuff).

Also what do you think about breakbeats? Like the Amen Break and shit.

Billy Cobham on drums. Not sure the name of the bassist.

This is supreme stuff. The drummer goes on multi-bar fill benders and the bassist is keeping everything in time while playing an absurd line. It probably doesn't get any better.

What do you drummers think of Shigeto? I don't play drums, so I think he's great, but what do you guys think?

I'm not a drummer, so it's hard to tell which part exactly you're talking about. Could you post the times in the video where the beat is off?
