Questlove Yamaha All Access 360 Interview

Questlove drops some thoughts on drumming, gear, soul music, and practicing and performing during an appearance with The Roots at the Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, AL .

It’s really hard to play disciplined and sloppy. There’s a certain sloppy element that I like to put in my drumming.

Whatever the average drummer is doing, I’m trying to do the exact opposite.

  1. this element hes referring to is the “pocket.” you cant explain it other then you know when it sits in it.

    this is the main trait that separates a beat programmer to a musician.

  2. I personally feel that the last few albums have a populair sound to them. I would almost put them under hip pop nowadays.
