    without a guitar, he's still pretty amazing.
    I have one of those Lexicon Primtime delays but it doesn't work *sadface*.

    Not samples, real tracks in pro-tools. Get that prime time fixed. One of the benefits of vintage gear, no one knob sub menu crap. I find this a refreshing alternative to the usb-stick dj stuff.

    I love Lanois but the true badass here is the drummer: That man has HANDS.

    Brian Blade is truly amazing, Jim Wilson does a great job on bass too, that fat hollow body tone is killer.

    I went to see Five Peace Band specifically because John McLaughlin is in my top 3 and spent the entire night glued to Brian Blade. He is a freaking monster. Sorry, John. Will watch you next time. ;)

    Are the real tracks in protools pre-recorded? how would you differentiate between samples and pre-recorded tracks being played in protools? (serious question not sarcasm).

    The point of my initial post was to bring to light that sounds aren't being solely produced by a mixer and the delay. Its still awesome regardless, but just to wanted clarify some unintended miscommunication in the OP's title.

    The source for all the sounds coming out of the delay's are pre recorded live tracks. I believe there are no samples being triggered. The tracks are manipulated by the delays not created by them and then mixed live.

    Surprised no one is hating on this. Just recently read a thread bashing "knob turners" on TGP. This man is genius. I overcame an anti-electronic music bias a couple years ago. What a gift to be open to new things that are happening. Turns out things exist outside of overdriven tube amps and the pentatonic scale. Who knew?

    Ha! There's an obscure LP by the late 70s/early 80s DC post punk band Tiny Desk Unit behind the drummer.

    The level of human involvement seems higher in this approach compared to "electronica". It's more performance based rather than sequence based.

    True. I have very little knowledge of Electronic sub-genres and couldn't wax on the difference between electronica or EDM, etc. However, I do think there are vast differences in artist's techniques and how they achieve their sounds. Tweaking knobs on a mix of prerecorded protools tracks and sequencing both take a musical and skilled approach for them to sound good. On the other hand, I find the sampling of other musician's songs kind of weak. Pretty much a cop out.

    You should see what he does with a ham radio and television.

    This was great and I choose to resist the temptation to compare it to other forms of music I don't enjoy or understand as much. Brian Blade is a real joy to listen to. Where are some other places to hear his playing? I really love listening to minimalist kit drumming.

    Last question - is this from a recent album release?

    Last comment - tone is the rings.

    re Brian Blade - his other stuff with Lanois is good. I like the Black Dub album

    Very good stuff. The tracks are indeed pre-recorded and he effects them with the delays. Brian Blade is a damn national treasure. Easily one if not my favorite drummers. His touch, phrasing and perspective are very refreshing in the drum world. When everyone is trying to play too much and say a million things, he can just communicate clear and beautifully. Blade's solo work is incredible as well as his Fellowship Band.

    Brian Blade also plays with Wayne Shorter, at least he used to recently. Fantastic drummer.
