Right Round - Flo rida Cover by Neal Medlyn

Guest Post by Neal Medlyn!

Oh God did I spend a lot of my pre-teen years with the drum machine on my various Casio and Yamaha keyboards, teaching myself the ins and outs of hip hop conventions such as the clutch-unclutch triangle beat, the careful alternation of two kinds of snare and two kinds of bass drum, the occasional off-beat clave hit, the two tone cowbell pattern, the lazy 1/8 note swing.

Here, America, are the fruits of all that lonely pre-teen time: every single one of those conventions used in service of the Number One song in America right now: Flo Rida's "Right Round".
