Mike Dolbear, online educator and motivator for all things drum and percussion adds Adam Betts and recent Young Drummer of the Year winner Anmol Mohara to the MD masterclass room at The UK Drum Show this September.
As a member of Brian Eno’s favourite London experimentalists Three Trapped Tigers, Adam Betts has spent years exploring the boundaries between electronic and live music, and celebrating the flaws thrown up when one tries to replicate the other.
Taking the “Drums Vs Electronics / Man Vs Machine’” idea he’s been developing behind the kit for TTT, and The Heritage Orchestra. Betts is always examining with where the line meets between human performance in all it’s sweaty, organic, imperfect glory and the infinite sound world and alien feeling of electronic music.
With as much love for Clyde Stubblefield and Bernard Purdie as Brian Chippendale or Vinnie Paul, I’m always excited by a way to get hyped musically.
Adam is a welcomed edition to the The UK Drum Show and look out for further announcements in the coming days.
