Drumspyder

Scott Sterling brings a deep love of rhythm, drums, and dance to his distinctive style of electronic fusion. As an expert percus​sionist specia​lizing in the Medite​rranean family of instruments (framedrum, tamborine, and arabic tabla), he weaves traditional rhythms and contem​porary bass sounds into finely sculpted grooves, equally inspirational to the dancefloor and the on-stage performer. Originating in San Francisco’s crucible of bellydance, bass culture, and world music fusion, Drumspyder has come into his own as an original producer, building a substantial catalog of work on the Caravan and Dakini labels and releasing his first original EP on Desert Trax in early 2015. He is a prolific remixer, lending his signature live percussion and melodic touch to the Desert Dwellers, Deya Dova, David Starfire, and various traditional Arabic ensembles, with many more on the way.
