> > > Jeremiah “Trauma” Stratton & Hed P.E – “Killing Time” live for BeatIt

Hed P.E is a legndary rapcore band from California. They started making noise in 1994 and for many people from the scene they are a true inspiration. They never stopped exploring new sounds. That’s why you can hear many different genres in their music. There is some metal, punk, reggae and rap influences in it. They were heavily influenced by Los Angeles gangsta rap artists, and they decided to blend some g-rap into their sounds. Their own mixture is called g-punk. On February 15 they have visited Wrocław, Poland to play a show in Firlej Club. We have also went to that concert, not only to enjoy the music, but also to meet their extraordinare drummer, Jeremiah “Trauma” Stratton!

Jeremiah is an ultra nice and sincere person. He was sharing his thoughts, memories and other stuff with us. He is also a great drummer, a true hard-hitter! He comes from a family of musicians, and it was much easier for him to decide which way to go in life. By 13 years of age, he had already won awards at Jazz Festivals across California, such as “Best Solo Artist”, “Best Rhythm Section”, and being the only Freshmen in San Clemente High School to ever be a first chair Jazz Band drummer. Wheb he was older he played in some hip-hop and funk bands, gaining his experience. He joined Hed P.E more than ten years ago. Besides his main act Jeremiah has also toured with such acts as Insane Clown Posse, Kottonmouth Kings, Tech Nine,, Mushroomhead or American Head Charge.

He is Pearl Drums and Soultone Cymbals artist.
