How To Create Modern Boom Bap Drums


Learn how to take your boom bap drum sound to the next level with these dubstep drum layering techniques! It's time to bring the golden era of hip hop back!

 

Drums That Knock

Boom Bap is awesome. And true hip hop in my eyes. But somehow, I feel like the New York grimey style has had difficulties passing the test of time. Nowadays, NY lyricists rap over trap beats. Of course, sampling legal battles took a huge toll on the art form.

And I feel like old school hip hop cats should be humble enough to learn from these young production wizards. 

With this idea in mind, JT shows you how to achieve incredible-sounding boom bap drums with a modern edge, based on dubstep drum layering techniques.

Let's go!
