Thing Of the day – MckNasty

I’ll admit it, I often find myself air drumming along to Call Me Maybe. And, I think I’m pretty good. I can totally nail that shit. With my fingers. When no one else can hear. When I’m alone. But that’s just me.

MckNasty, on the other hand, can actually drum a long to real songs on a real drum kit. Actually, I lie. He can sample songs with his drum kit (it has pads that have songs in it and he can control them with the when and the where he hits the skins with his drumsticks dontchaknow) and while he’s literally bashing out a remix he plays a long on the other drums. It’s like watching a magician except it’s real. That’s probably why he’s toured with Gaga, Wretch 32, Tinie Tempah and Devlin.

Maybe you were lucky enough to catch him play a recent and impromptu gig outside the Sunglass Hut in Covent Garden – but if not, download his mixtape HERE totes free and drum along till your fingers wear off.
