A double CD set that has a strong dancey flavour.
Each CD features full ensemble grooves in different mixes and with elements isolated for maximum flexability. We decided to give the grooves in their full duration so there is plenty of possible loop points rather than drastically editing everything to fit onto a single CD but lose a lot of this variety. In all there are 13 major ensemble grooves ranging from 83-160 bpm.
Additionally there are hundreds of solo loops and hits featuring Bongos, Congas, Darbuka, Bata, Djembe, Triangle, Shaker, Tambourine, Rainstick, Sleighbells, Timbales, Beans, Cowbell, Strumpet, Cabasa, Guiro, and much more.
More info on the Producer
Pascal Benadjaoud came to the UK from France in 1988 and has become one of the best-known percussionists on the UK scene. Aside from session work with top artists from around the World, he is well known for his live performances in clubs with top DJs.
He died tragically in his prime in 1998. He will be greatly missed by all who had the good fortune to know him.
"I couldn't get it in the CD player fast enough...The loops represent many different dance styles from Latin American, to African, and stragely enough, the bongo samples are massive!...I have been looking for a sample CD which concentrates on fresh, original percussion for some time, and it looks like this is it. Even better it's performed by one of the finest percussionists in the world, so rest assured that every loop is immaculate." - The Mix, Nov 96.
"Bongo is another credit to this fine series. 5 Stars" - Sound On Sound 98
