Move over Martin Garrix‘s production of Animals. What you’re about to see now will probably make you love this cover of Animals.
Afishal, a percussionist, recently covered Animals on a set of MIDI Bongo Drums in a live setting, a move which might revolutionize live electronic music sets.
Consisting of a large array of MIDI controlled drums, that can be pre-programmed and incorporated with loop pedals to suit the percussive requirement of a track. Though it definitely is a larger setup and expensive, it’ll definitely allow more producers to try their hands at using the drums to give their productions a more unique, organic feel.
With more artists such as Porter Robinson playing live sets on their tours, these MIDI controlled drums could serve as a blessing in disguise.
The video shows Afishal covering Animals in front of a love audience pretty accurately, adding his own twist here and there. Looks and sounds pretty sick, to be honest.
You’ve gotta see it to believe it.
