Darren King is the best drummer in the world. There, I said it. Many will disagree, but either way, you’d be hard pressed to not give him props for being something unique in a world that many music fans sadly glaze over. Drumming is the back-bone of a lot of music; certainly Mutemath’s.

Most producers will at some point become familiar with the software behemoth known as Native Instruments, which will lead them to also become acquainted with a company called Scarbee.

During my college years, long past, one of the few pleasures of an otherwise arduous and mundane period was to enroll in Audio I and II classes, which allowed my interest in music to briefly overlap the normally unbearable experience of academics. Lying at the core of why these classes proved to be enjoyable was the teaching provided by Joe … Read More
