KJ SAWKA BIO
With a passion for music, superhuman dexterity and mastery of the musical marathon, KJ Sawka is world renowned drummer extraordinaire. From continuously touring the globe to conquering the electronic music scene by going platinum with super group Pendulum (original live EDM band of 'Knife Party' superstars, Rob Swire and Garreth McGrillen) to challenging status quo with his live dubstep band Destroid, (a power trio comprised of Excision, Downlink, and KJ Sawka) KJ Sawka is a force to be reckoned with. Utilizing a half-acoustic, half-electronic drum set, laptop and a multitude of triggered effects, the original human drum machine produces dynamically enthralling live electronica with an all-but-unmatched aggression. With a deeply rooted, rich musical history, his influence helped to pave the way for the electronic music movement; KJ Sawka is one of the original groundbreaking artist connecting live instrumentation with the digital age and sound we know today as EDM.
And as if all of that wasn't enough; 2015 christened the birth and launch of his latest passion project Impossible Records, a multi-genre electronic dance music label. In less than two years the independent label has hit the ground running with 20+ #1 hits on the Beatport Music charts and notoriety and praise pouring in from major music blogs and top producers worldwide.
KJ Sawka is the master of drum and bass drumming. Plain and simple. Kevin has been involved in some of the biggest names in EDM, and continues to release top notch work as both a drummer and producer. I need not say too much, because once you watch this video, you’ll know exactly what I mean.
KJ Sawka plays some of the rawest drums around. And that's before he adds electronics. On an acoustic drumset he creates the whirs, delays, effects, and sonic dislocations of electronic music. Adding an arsenal of devices further broadens his palette, providing an atmospheric bed for his extremely visceral drumming. "I really try to re-create the drum machine beats of electronic music with an acoustic drumset, simultaneously triggering the actual snare, kick, and hi-hat sounds," Sawka explains from London. "I try to sound as electronic as possible. I become the machine."
Consistently considered one of the go to guys for drum and bass rhythms that will rip your ears off, he’s only going to get bigger from here. Destroid, which includes masterminds Excision, Downlink, and KJ Sawka is coming towards an end to their 2013 tour. Seeing them live is something else if you never have. Check out their remaining dates below [omitted] and watch Kevin “Destroy” it on the drums.”
