Rabbit fur costume for the brain.

Today I bring you the latest track submitted from one of my readers. Recorded by Endai Hüdl in Berlin, Germany, the song is entitled “Ded Blokkz Mambo” and incorporates the Blakey-esque loop #79. Unfortunately, Endai didn’t include much of a backstory to the track. He did, however, provide a brief description:

“Rabbit fur costume for the brain. helps me concentrate…”

After listening to the track, I couldn’t have said it better myself.

Below is an example of just that, a looped beat from the latest Gruss Pack thrown thru the Line 6 guitar amp modeling device, set to “Bassy Drive”, with a 1968 4×12 greenback cabinet, and the middle turned up a touch. I could see The Beasties trade rhymes over this one:

Give it a listen here.

This is a great example of taking a straightforward beat and using amp modeling (normally reserved for guitars and bass) to give the drums some grit and extra character.
