DRUMETRICS can be simply defined as a: Pulsating Measure
We try to create combining metric lines (op art) to coincide with a metric pulse (drums).
With our collection of vintage drums as our backbone, we engineer and record with rare vintage analogue equipment,
creating tones that project character.
Our Drumetrics Collective produces sounds & compositions that can be categorized as a harmonious blend of:
electronic, psychedelic, funk & cinematic music inspired from the eras
Drumetrics is the finished product of what MRR (Michael Raymond Russell) and WBB (William Benjamin Bensussen) began in 1999 as MHE, (Machines Have Emotions). MHE morphed into a collective called Dirtydrums that derived from sampling drum breaks from old vinyl & editing on an Akai MPC 2000. From there, this entity emerged as the duo of MRR-ADM who took the production to the next level by engineering and recording the sounds captivated as they did 50+ years ago producing with vacuum tube & transistor analogue gear.
Now the core collective are:
MRR (Michael Raymond Russell)
ADB (Andrew David Barragan)
DRB (Danny Ray Barragan)
