As DJs, producers and long-term collectors of electronic music, Tim and Marc have had the good fortune to check out what is vogue around the globe. And in 2009, it is all about the bass: Simple jacking grooves and bass-lines that pin you to the wall with their astonishingly huge, uber-stereo, over -processed intensity.
All the drum loops and single hits have been beefed up through the use of valve and solid state compressors. Plenty of weird and crazy effects are included to go with them so that there is plenty of choice for mixing up the style and flavours from cutting-edge tech, minimal, electro, glow-stick-tastic ghetto-rave, baille-funk to retro 80’s styles in new and exciting ways.
Most of the synth sounds in this collection originate from hardware, either analogue or digital, and everything is run through a selection of outboard processing to funk up the sound. Synths like the Nord G2 sound so much better once they have been warmed up by the valve circuits of the Culture Vulture and Phoenix, and you get everything here from pure analogue goodness of the Moogs, Future Retro XS and vintage Roland synths, to the hi-tech sounds of the Nord, rich FM pads and lo-fi madness of the home made Sid Synth.
This cutting edge collection of club ready sounds top the scales at just over 1GB content, which comprise no less than 114 Snarling Basslines, 274 Full fat Drum Loops, 73 inspirational Music Loops, 31 Analogue Synth Patterns, 20 Vox and FX loops, 132 Bass Multi-parts, 286 Single Drum Samples, 54 FX and more than 100 Synth Sounds!
For producers looking for cutting edge, no nonsense and seriously usable content to create future classic Jackin, Electro Breaks, Tech, Minimal and Punked up Fidget Funk - Alternative House is the inspiration pack producers can rely on for 100% inspiration every time!
"mash-up manipulator Tim Healey blows the speakers apart with his trashed-out sound... the music is as cutting-edge as you’d find in any London club"
