"From when I was a very young drummer and all things music fanatic, the sight of a bass drum sound moving a woofer speaker out of its speaker cabinet made me smile. In today's music, the kick drum is still the main sound which makes people move on the one to the four. It even has become an artist's signature sound.
It's tuned in the key of the song or the remix, triggering sub woofer speakers to come alive and keeping neighbours wide awake. It's commonly assigned to that very first channel on a mixing board and that one ultimate fat kick sound is still a drummers', producers and sound engineers' wet dream. Since my very first studio recording session at age 14, I've always been going for that "Fat Kick" playing feel.
Today, through my new FATKick record label, I would like you to discover my music, dance or move your head with me in your car, on a flight, on your bike, while doing fitness, while having a low carb breakfast or a fat juicy burger dinner. Welcome to my world of FATKick music."
