World Renowned Electro Drummer Joins Pendulum

“KJ Sawka is an android plugged into a digitized instrument of his own design, playing more music than one human seems capable of and playing it faster than seems humanly possible” – The Seattle Times

“Seeing KJ Sawka play live is a unique experience. Using only his two hands and two feet he is able to create incredibly complex jungle rhythms and fills, proving that he is undoubtedly one of the best drummers out there” – Music Tech Magazine

Pendulum edge even closer to super-group status with the news that world renowned electronic drummer Kevin Sawka – better known as KJ SAWKA – has joined the band. Sawka has already contributed to the recording of Pendulum’s eagerly anticipated third album ‘Immersion’ and will be introduced to UK audiences when he joins the band’s May tour that features a landmark show at London’s Wembley Arena.

Hailing from Seattle, Sawka was initially drawn to electronic music by the sounds of Dieselboy, LTJ Bukem and Roni Size. His first breakthrough came with the cult all-improvisatory avant-garde drum ‘n’ bass trio Siamese who toured North America in 2002-2003 with shows ranging from support slots with LTJ Bukem and MC Conrad to a performance at the New Orleans Jazzfest. His recent career has included rapturously received solo shows, tours with BT and the development of the innovate iPhone app DrumBanger.

Demonstrations of Sawka’s remarkable talent can be seen here!:

‘Immersion’ will be previewed with the release of the single ‘Watercolour’ on May 3rd.
