Pete Lockett is without any doubt one of the best musicians there are nowadays. As percussionist, drummer and musician he is on the forefront for many years already. In 2016 he played at the Wienfelden International drum festival in Switzerland, and he was so kind to share his footage with us - and even send us commentaries with the videos.
We created a series of Director Cuts from the videos with commentaries about the videos from Pete himself. When listening to Pete about the tracks, suddenly those often hard to grasp percussion rhythms start to make sense. All the videos have Pete explaining about the tracks and the rhythms he is playing, and gives great background stories on the songs as well.

Here are Russ Miller and Pete Lockett, both in two director cuts of their live video of 'Rhythmic Conversation'. It is a track taken from Russ Miller's album 'Arrival' and re-written as a duet for their collaborative album 'Rhythm Sphere'. The video was recorded at the 2016-edition of the Wienfelden International Drum Festival in Switzerland. The live version is without comments, but we recommend listening to Pete and Russ to get great insights on how drummers on the highest level work. And these percussive masters go far, in technical terms, playing and phrasing rhythms. All valuable lessons to watch.
