About the tune

Sounds more like Hip-Hop than Drum ‘n’ Bass but has a really nice groove. Can be very cheerful when played quite fast or be groovy when played slow.

This is one of the newer tunes of ror. It has been developed on a transnational basis between 2009 & 2010.

The low surdo is very important in this tune because it gives the special hip hop rhythm and “carries” the tune. There are different versions on the tune sheets but both sound good ;). Since non of the surdos play at the same time, it is also possible to play this tune with only one or two surdo players and three surdos. To remember the surdo lines it is also helpful to sing them all together (low, high, middle middle, low, high, low low, high, middle middle, low, high…)

Breaks

  • Break 1 is a singing break (no drumming, all sing together "everybody dance now!”), brings a good mood and moves and can be used to involve audience. This break can be played in all other tunes as well.
  • Break 2 is similar to the “Kick Back 2 Break” from the tune Ragga. Be aware that only repi and snare play on the 8th beat before it goes back into the tune.
  • Break 3 is a little tricky but once mastered, sounds really nice.
  • The Progressive break is quite easy and can creates tension. With the special hand sign for this break it is easy to include it while playing other tunes.
  • The Hip Hop Break (the hand sign is supposed to look really cool hip-hop-stylish, everyone does it their way) sounds really groovy but is also quite tricky for the surdos (a memory-hook phrase is helpful).
