KJ SAWKA- Slaying Bass Heads all over the world since early 2000!
Fresh off the Destroid Fall Tour ‘Safe in Sound’, which was a massive success and broke all kinds of records in the Bass Music Movement. This fall KJ Sawka is producing with Destroid as well as gigging and producing his own original recordings, loop packs and remixes.
-Older bio- KJ SAWKA is BACK in the states after being on an intensive two year WORLD TOUR with the platinum selling, award winning electronic rock band,
P E N D U L U M.
Bringing forth the next stage of the electronic music movement. The new mega collaboration is born. DESTROID led by Canadian bass master Excision, featuring Downlink and KJ Sawka have already been crushing every 2013 main stage. A full-on live Dubstep band executed in a way that bass music has never seen.
“KJ Sawka is the master of drum and bass drumming. Plain and simple. Kevin has been involved in some of the biggest names in EDM, and continues to release top notch work as both a drummer and producer. I need not say too much, because once you watch this video, you’ll know exactly what I mean.
Consistently considered one of the go to guys for drum and bass rhythms that will rip your ears off, he’s only going to get bigger from here. Destroid, which includes masterminds Excision, Downlink, and KJ Sawka is coming towards an end to their 2013 tour. Seeing them live is something else if you never have. Check out their remaining dates below and watch Kevin “Destroy” it on the drums.

KJ Sawka plays some of the rawest drums around. And that’s before he adds electronics. On an acoustic drumset he creates the whirs, delays, effects, and sonic dislocations of electronic music. Adding an arsenal of devices further broadens his palette, providing an atmospheric bed for his extremely visceral drumming. “I really try to re-create the drum machine beats of electronic music with an acoustic drumset, simultaneously triggering the actual snare, kick, and hi-hat sounds,” Sawka explains from London. “I try to sound as electronic as possible. I become the machine.”
KJ SAWKA is a solo act as well as in the groups Destroid and Pendulum
