A beautiful track from the Tofmeister here. Full of his signature feel and sense of dynamic. And a tough one to add to (again - that's two this evening!)

Initial approach was to play it gentle and straight, building where I could see builds in the waveform in Reaper. It sounded flat and dead - as if the drummer couldn't be bothered. So back to the drawing board. All it took, after a few play throughs with ideas, was that syncopated rim click on the snare to to give the track a little bit of lilt and gentility.

From there, I built the pattern onto the snare, introducing the floor tom hit which really helped to punctuate the track without over powering it. The other key, for me, was fills which almost sound lazy.

As always, a simple approach is always the most effective. The hardest part of this track was mixing the drums in the right place.

Enjoy,

No reverb, as usual, on the HD drums.
