There are few drummers in EDM more popular than Matt McGuire right now, as he’s toured the world with The Chainsmokers in just about every country imaginable. (KJ Sawka, drummer for Pendulum and Destroid, is just about the only other drummer with as much notoriety in dance music.)
Still, kids who have grown up on dance music and only dance music have a tendency to get bored by things like real instruments, so you’ve got to find a way to keep it spicy and hot. Well, why not light your drum sticks on fire?
During a mid-show drum solo, McGuire fashioned two drum sticks with some accelerant-soaked material and let ‘er rip… the normal every day drum solo is transformed into a high-energy, one of a kind performance in the blink of an eye. Check it out below.
