After hearing “Purple Lamborghini” the first time I thought it was an obvious cover. With the anticipated release of the movie Suicide Squad coming soon (8/5/2016) as well as the music video for “Purple Lamborghini” ft. The Joker I thought it would be appropriate. Once again this song sits at a very comfortable tempo where the 16th notes are still at a quick pace and the 16th note triplets are still possible to play. For this video I just improvised over the song as there was plenty of space to do so. Also I commonly tend to feel that alot of skrillex stuff can be complimented with some double bass in it as well.
In this video Im playing a PDP X7 all maple shell drum kit. I have my rack toms set up with the 10″ and 12″ toms, the floor toms are the 14″ on the right and 16″ on the left. For drum heads Im using Evans clear ec2 level 360’s on all of the toms. Im playing on a 14″x6.5″ Tama Starclassic steel snare with remo controlled sound x on top and a remo ambassador on the bottom. Also have the Lamborghini on the snare with its independent suspension to eliminate some of that steel snare ring that’s added to the snare once its a little compressed (This little model Lamborghini Murcielago worked incredibly for this). The doublebass pedal is a Tama speedcobra. I also happen to be playing Vater 55BB drum sticks.
For mics Im using a Shure sm57 on the snare, Audix i5’s on the toms, Audix d6 in the kick, and Samson C02 pencil condensers for overheads. Also running these through an RME FIREFACE 800.
The video was filmed with GoPro Hero 3+
