Episode 31: The Influence of American/UK Music on Latin Drumming w/ Erasmo "Wasmo" Huerta

Jul 22, 2020 | 0 comments

This week’s guest is Erasmo "Wasmo" Huerta. Erasmo is one of our artists and one hell of a drummer. While he was born and raised in Venezuela, he currently resides in Miami, Florida. He had reached out a few weeks back and wanted to chat about his views on the influence that music from America and the United Kingdom has had in the Latin drumming community. I’ll be the first to admit that I am pretty insecure over my lack of knowledge pertaining to Latin drumming and this definitely re-inspired me to dive deeper.  Players Discussed: José Luis Quintana “Changuito”...

  This week’s guest is Madden Klass and I have really been looking forward to this conversation. Madden is definitely one of my favorite players today and I wanted to get her on to discuss her ethos on technique, practicing, and just overall approach to how she prioritizes what she focuses on when it comes to becoming a better player. I have a feeling Madden is going to be on some very timeless and impactful records in the future and I was happy to be able to get a chance to chat. That being said, I almost didn’t release this...

Jul 01, 2020 | 0 comments

I tried something new this week. One of my favorite podcasts is "Tech Stuff" and I decided to take a stab a doing a similar format for this episode. No guests…just the mumblings and bumblings of yours truly. The last two guests on the podcast, Terry Keating (episode #26) and Gunnar Olsen (ep #27), both brought up the topic of the “click track”. It got me thinking…when did this thing start and why? Why was perfect time needed at all? Welllllll…follow me down the rabbit hole to find out about the history of the click track and hopefully, this is a format that...

Hello hello…my name is Ben Hilzinger and this is the Big Fat Snare Drum Podcast. I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while now. My guest today is Gunnar Olsen. I met Gunnar on tour in 2018 when one of my bands opened up for Big Data…a band for which he plays and it was one of the most fun times I've ever had on tour. I can say without a doubt that Gunnar is one of my favorite drummers to watch and listen to. His mixture of power and approachable creativity is unmatched in my opinion. When...
