The Roots Ahmir Thompson Questlove Drumming

A selection of Questlove’s grooves from a masterpiece hip hop record.

The Roots were one of the first bands to draw me into hip hop. Still one of my all time favourite acts. Here’s a selection of grooves taken from the “Things Fall Apart” album. The track “Without a Doubt” is sampled from a Schoolly D track, which was also sourced from Wild Magnolias (Zigaboo Modeliste) and Melvin Bliss. I dig the sixteenth note triplets in “Aint Sayin’ Nothin”. It’s all in the feel. Swing the sixteenth note subdivisions.
