Trade drum videos with your crew via #Trading20s

Make your drum videos interactive and shed virtually with your homies via #Trading20s, our new Instagram video series. All ya do is record a 20 second drum vid and tag a drum friend you want to answer you with a video of their own. To start out, the only constraint is to make your video #93bpm.  Use the hashtags #trading20s and #93bpm and tag @thebeatnyc. Here's a taste of a couple of our favorite entries. Be creative, and don't leave your friend hanging!
