While many of you were sleeping last night, dreaming about Neve consoles and 7 string Ibanez guitars, I was busy putting the finishing touches on my latest loop pack – Gruss Loops Volume III. My greatest collection of eclectic grooves and thunderous beats thus far, it’s now available for download in the member’s only section. Come follow me for a quick tour, will you?
74_SlowLow – This might be on the slower side, but it’s definitely not for ballads. With a touch of distortion and a heap of compression, this set of loops comes with a wide array of fills and transitions.[audio:74_SlowLow.mp3]
136_Bembe – This is the complete session from the “Backwords Bembe” loop I posted a few weeks ago. From cowbell to ride cymbal to snare rim, this takes the 6/8 bembe pattern and moves it around the kit like a military brat.[audio:136_Bembe.mp3]
136_Strokes – Don’t let the name fool you. You won’t need a trust fund to play with these loops (though some skinny jeans will help). Indie rock drums fit for both Lower East Side dive bars and Meatpacking district dance clubs.[audio:136_Strokes.mp3]
220_Tonyish – I’m not talking about that Tony. This is a set of grooves inspired by the one and only Mr. Williams. A mix of post bop, fusion and straight ahead, it’s everything you need to fire your current drummer and replace him with a laptop.[audio:220_Tonyish.mp3]
