Shouts to a company called Sugar Bytes for hooking me up with a plugin called “Effectrix”. Been test-driving it today. Basically, it’s a 32-step effect step sequencer. Good for some good old fun! Here I’m playing one bar without it, one bar with it, etc, switching to another pattern on the fly. Peep it!
Working on some breaks just like every day. Some FatGyver custom breaks might come out at some point.
“Recording Hybrid Kit” by Drumdrops. The whole chain: Drum kit, Slate’s Virtual Console Channel, Universal Audio’s Pultec EQ + 1176 comp (parallel comp), OhmForce’s PredatOHM (parallel processing), Slate’s Virtual Tape + Virtual Buss Compressor, another Pultec and another Virtual Tape.
Phew. Been buried under work for a long time. Finally made it out of there and finished an EP worth of material, hoping it’ll see the light of the day in a way or another one day. Here’s a real quick Insta-snippet.
Moving and setting up new lab…done! Working on new beats.
The first album for Redef is done, and currently we’re waiting for a verse or two from a dope rapper, and then it’ll be full steam ahead with the album release, so watch this space.
Got a nice package from Redef.
The album, “Talk To Strangers”, will be coming out on Redef in a few months. There’s a few new plans regarding it we want to wrap up but then it’ll be good to go.
So, watch this space.
I’m stoked to say that the debut album will be coming out on Redefinition Records.
Can’t put into words how honored I am to be getting my instrumental hip hop debut out on one of my favourite labels. Redefinition Records is an indie hip-hop label based out of New Jersey & Washington, DC. It’s all killers, no fillers, presenting the dopest in hip hop. Especially Damu The Fudgemunk’s works have been inspiring my hip-hop-ism to a great extent.
We’ll be having more release news for you shortly, so stay tuned!
When it comes to breaks…I love putting in some work.
I recently found a dope break (a few, actually) on an old Finnish record.
I had to put it together from so many small chops that are spread out in the song. I love doing meticulous stuff like that with drums.
