When the first Jane’s Addiction album came out in 1987, it helped define the fresh Los Angeles alternative rock sound. Stephen Perkins’s powerful, hybrid grooves mixed funk, punk, metal, and ethnic ingredients into a tasty flavor as diverse in influences as L.A. itself. Now, you can have Stephen playing on your next hit by purchasing the brand-new Submersible Music Stephen Perkins Drummerpack for DrumCore and DrumCore Deluxe.
Although Stephen is always identified as a core member of Jane’s Addiction, he is also known for his innovative playing with Porno for Pyros, Banyan, and the Panic Channel, not to mention being part of Tommy Lee’s Methods of Mayhem tour. What’s more, as a songwriter himself, his fluid technique always serves the song, with carefully thought-out dynamics and sonic textures. You hear bongos, maracas, and other percussion woven in with the standard drum kit sounds – all fueled by a punk enthusiasm that weaves a brilliant groove tapestry that is, without question, Stephen’s own. Naturally, you’ll hear many of your favorite “Janey” grooves in this pack, with seven GrooveSets and seven matching MIDI drum kits. Note that the PerkinsPack includes BOTH audio and MIDI grooves as well as drum kits. KitCore users stay tuned for the KitCore MIDI-only version, which will be coming out in the next few weeks.
