The New Frontier for Drumset by Marko Djordjevic

The New Frontier for Drumset is a unique method in that it aims to break you away from always playing previously practiced licks, patterns, and stickings. In doing so, your creativity will be challenged in ways that will broaden your understanding of the instrument. This makes it one of the most comprehensive drum methods available today. With this method, you’ll achieve greater freedom in improvising and composing drum parts; improve your musicality, time, feel, dynamics, coordination, and melodic movement around the drumset; and increase your understanding and accurate execution of subdivisions, linear playing, odd-meter playing, and phrasing over the bar line. This book will surely help you become the best drummer you can be.

The Breakbeat Bible, free pdf and audio preview

Hudson music releases ‘The breakbeat bible’

The Breakbeat Bible provides the most in-depth study of breakbeat drumming in print. The style is divided into thirteen essential elements, with each element discussed in its own chapter. Hundreds of exercises and beats give the reader ample opportunity to practice the elements, which, when assembled, will give the drummer the ability to integrate a complete language of incredibly funky concepts into his or her playing.

Over 90 transcriptions of beats and breaks provide the reader with a window into hip-hop/breakbeat drumming. Included are some of the most sampled beats in music history—including information about the original song and later songs that used the sample. Also included is a historical overview of hip-hop and breakbeat drumming, as well as biographies of many of the “architects” that helped design the culture.

The “Click Track Loops” chapter provides an incredibly challenging system for practicing the breakbeat/hip-hop elements and other grooves against various patterns programmed into a drum machine. These will help the reader attain new levels of tightness, precision, and groove in their drumming.

The Breakbeat Bible MP3 Disc features examples of select exercises, beats, and eight-bar phrases from the book. It also contains five play-along instrumental tracks (with and without drums). There is also a bonus sample library featuring 30 individual drum/cymbal sounds. Bonus Sections include Beats With Drops, Fills, and Dubstep.
