Kevin Sawka - Captain of Crunch

posted by on May 24 at 11:27 AM

Today, Kevin KJ Sawka takes us on a tour of his drum kit. It is sick and hybrid. Sawka played last night at Neumo’s with Amon Tobin.

Kevin Sawka is a freak of drum ‘n’ bass and breakbeat nature. He’s a lover of all things MIDI. The set-up is Mission Control. Electronics and drums are one. Kevin bionically operates gear and plays drums at the same time.

His new album, Cyclonic Steel, is set for release on Wax Orchard Records. Kevin also talks about breakfast cereal, his favorite color, and checking email during his set.

For further dissection of Sawka’s kit and game, check this previous Stranger feature, Circus Contraption.

Holy Shit. I disagree on the Cap'n Crunch. The best breakfast cereal is Life. By far.

No, Quisp is the best cereal.

This Sawka interview is great. Info should be in print. Helpful. Though nothing beats mustard green Van Halen.

Where can I get one of those drum kits?

Life Cereal gets way too soggy, people. Cap'n Crunch, is almost too crunchy -sorry Kevin. The cereal answer is ----

FROSTED MINI WHEATS

Oh man. I wish I would have seen that show. How was Amon Tobin? His records are pretty cool. And Sawka must have ruled.

Cool video.
