We try to create combining metric lines (op art) to coincide with a metric pulse (drums)
With collecting vintage drums and recording them technically in the same era they were made- is the staple of our sound and visuals. Our goal is to engineer a raw analog drum sound for either producers to sample or collaborate.
Our Drumetrics Collective of artist produces sounds that can be categorized as a harmonious blend of electronic, psychedelic, funk music inspired by the 1960’s. The music stirs and unites the energy to engage the listener similar to a soldier hearing the heavy syncopated drum pattern while standing at the front lines preparing for war.
Drumetrics is the finished product of what MRR (Michael Raymond Russell) and GLK (The Gaslamp Killer) began in 1999 as MHE, Machines Have Emotions. MHE morphed into a collective called Dirtydrums that derived from sampling raw drum breaks off of vinyl from the era of the 1960s and 70s. From there, this entity emerged as the duo of MRR-ADM who took the production to the next level by engineering and recording the sounds captivated as they did in the 1960’s & 70’s by using vintage analog equipment.
Now, it is officially a record label with a collective of artist aiming to resurrect, recreate, and release music inspired by the UK Library Music of the 1960’s. Which created a raw minimal sound production thats sampler friendly for Producers,Television & Movie Scores.
