November issue of Rhythm on sale now!
This month New York jazz star Mark Guiliana tells us about his electronic influences, sublime jazz technique, his approach to drum education and playing on David Bowie's final album Blackstar.
Guiliana is headlining Rhythm's drum spectacular, the London Drum Show, this month, so we also bring you all the details of that show which is at London's Olympia venue 12-13 November…
This issue we're going big on the drummers that are bringing their talents to the London Drum Show in November, so we've got interviews with Steve White, Stereophonics Jamie Morrison, Rudimental's Beanie and Lower Than Atlantis' Eddy Thrower!
But that's not all, we've also got interviews with Frankie Tontoh (George Michael, Amy Winehouse and more), Mathias Wakrat (Wakrat) and Pat Wilson of Weezer.
Win a Sabian Sound Kit worth £335! The cymbal company have brought out a dedicated drum mic and mixer set, ideal for drummers who crave a better live mix at small gigs, want to improve the audio on their drum videos or who prefer to practise or rehearse on a properly mixed kit! And one of these beauties can be yours, if you pick up this month's Rhythm!
