How was your experience on the new Ear Candy Music?Let us know!
33 breaks deep, it’s nearly double the size of 2019’s Break Bonanza and 2015’s Backyard Breaks and just tips the scales over 2018’s Guerrilla Drums and the inaugural Lunch Breaks from 2014. After speaking with numerous producers and discovering each had a different favorite, J sat at the drums intent on putting a new spin on the best attributes of each one and throwing in some experimentation.
The random commentary and human error of J learning his craft on Lunch Breaks shows up, but so does the eventual precision of Break Bonanza. The rhythmic and tempo experimentation of Guerrilla Drums resurfaces, but the hard-smacking one-two of Backyard Breaks also remains. Then there’s stuff unique to Concussion Percussion: free-wheeling mallet grooves, psychedelic ride cymbal effects and the “something outta nothing” use of crappy coffee beans for quirky snare drum sounds.
With Madlib’s recent sampling of “Ode To Sloppy Joe” (from Lunch Breaks) on his single, “Road of the Lonely Ones,” the super-producer joins Broken Bells, Alchemist, Prince Paul, Marco Polo and countless others who’ve sampled J-Zone break kits. J has also done studio work for Danger Mouse (Karen O, Michael Kiwanuka), Lord Finesse, Binky Griptite (The Dap-Kings), Show (DITC), Pharoahe Monch, Adrian Quesada (The Black Pumas), DJ Nu-Mark and many more, in addition to his own bands (The Du-Rites, Manzel, The Zone Identity) and his tenure as the tour/studio drummer for soul singer Ben Pirani.
