Wojtek Deregowski Highlights Caban Drummer Fest 2022



Wojtek Deregowski Highlights Caban Drummer Fest 2022

Over many years, Wojtek Deregowski’s tasteful drums work has graced the works of his influential ensembles with the successful Tina Karol, Rosalie, Sorry Boys, Bartek, and Dario Imaz, earning him a name as one of the best contemporary, and more specifically rock and pop drummers of his generation in Poland. Deregowski began his solo (and bands) career serving up a tasteful amalgam of intricate rhythmic lines over chugging, sensual modern rock grooves. Wojtek takes a more untraditional, metal-tinged approach to drums, favouring a rich, mellow toms tone and combining horn-like melodies with subtle chord sequences. Wojtek always takes a very exraordinary and innovative approach to building his own drum sets. At this particular festival he incorporated a second snare drum that served both as a fat meaty groove backbeat as well as perfectly tuned second tom tom when wires were off. Another clever addition to the kit – on the left Wojtek used a very interesting stack made of five bent cymbals that gave off the sound strikingly similar to an electronic clap sample.

Even though Wojtek may sound a little too technical to some, he has been a major force in the Polish scene, and helped establishing acclaimed halls (such as the National Stadium Warsaw, Hala Stulecia Wrocław, Netto Arena – Szczecin, Amfiteatr w Opolu – Opole, Palladium Warsaw, and Stodola – Warsaw) as a most forward thinking venues in the nation. And to add on top of all that, he is repeatedly featured as one of the scene’s most respected beat makers in the important professional Polish drums and music magazines, Perkusista Magazine, Info Drum, Poczuj Rytm, and Info Music. His week-long performances (of his highlighted solo sets, as well as a spectacular 4 drum sets concert) at the major Caban Drummer Fest 2022 was indeed, admittedly, the most distinct drums production of the season, and unequivocally underscored his stature as the preeminent drummer, effectively distinguishing him from his musical peers.

Later in 2022 Wojtek could have been seen performing at the prestigious stage of Tam Tam Festival in Seville Spain. Teatro Central – this time this famous venue with tradition was filled with explosive sounds of the electronic drums. Combined with Wojtek’s musicality and innovative approach created a performance never to be forgotten by all the audience that visited the festival.
