Music has always been a monumental component of skateboard culture, particularly skate videos. Andrew Meador approached me with the idea and wanted to collaborate on a producer’s drum sample pack using skateboard sounds. It was a no-brainer to partner together in the wake of my year-long, sample-a-day project.

We went to the Chattanooga skatepark to capture the sound of the ramps and rails, then to a street spot. It was a little more challenging to capture a wide variety of sounds than we first thought because even though Andrew was doing vastly different tricks on the ramps, they all sounded very similar on the recording. That caused us to go back to the drum studio and record more samples. That was our Cambrian Explosion moment—using different brushes and sticks to strike the griptape, focusing on texture-on-texture sounds instead of just different motions of the skateboard(s). This sample pack is an exhaustive exploration of multifarious decks, trucks, wheels, rails, and grinds, smashes, and crashes plus a couple of Easter Egg grooves at 84BPM.
