The Loops are coming! The Loops are coming!

Yeah, I know I haven’t been blogging much this week. It’s because I’ve been locked up in the studio, chugging gallons of Red Bull, snorting several kilos of Fun Dip and editing hundreds of drum loops, all in preparation of the November 1st release of Gruss Loops Volume VI.

I’d be lying if I didn’t say this was the best series of loops I’ve ever created… if not, in the history of the internets. From South Indian frame drum grooves to super tight James Brown-inspired funk beats to uptempo bebop loops that would make the hair (and needles) on Charlie Parker’s arm stand up, this loop pack has it all.

Update – Don’t forget to subscribe before midnight tomorrow to download Volume V before it moves from the subscriber area and goes into the Back Issue Store!

Q. What do Elton John, Madonna, George Michael and Michael Jackson have in common?

A. They all pick up the phone and call drummer extraordinaire, Jonathan “Sugarfoot” Moffett, when it’s time to take the show on the road!

According to Modern Drummer magazine, this is how Jonathan earned his tasty nickname:

Jonathan Moffett got the nickname “Sugarfoot” because of his exceptional bass drum technique – he had a ‘sweet’ foot – when he was all but twelve years old.”

When I was twelve, I think my nickname was “Jerkface” (according to my sister). Definitely not as cool.

Apparently tigers don't have a sweet tooth.

Loop #14

Before recording this loop, I stuck my right foot in a 10 gallon vat of Fun Dip.
