More info on the Producer
Keith started off at Sugarhill Records performing of records by Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel, later going on to work with Seal, The Cure, Annie Lennox, NIN, ABC, 808 State, Bomb The Bass, and many many more. He has his own record label, Blanc Records, and is a member of >Tackhead<.
Keith's first CD was very successful, this one is on a different planet. His subsequent Fresh Killed Meat CDs, Prime Funk and Drum&Bass Carnage, continue to build his reputation as one of the finest producers of drum loops around.
Prime Funk has already picked up another 5 star review from Sound On Sound - a unique hat-trick.
"...the loop tracks never settle down to a routine: there are always challenging twists and turns to the sound, feel and approach. Many have a unique character, yet leave enough room for your creativity...This set challenges you not to come up with formula music. KLB's mind and talent give you a head start in avoiding the mediocre - don't waste it!." 5 Stars. - Sound On Sound, Nov 96
Many Sugar Hill Classics such as Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel's 'The Message', plus James Brown, REM, Mick Jagger, Annie Lennox, Seal, 808 State, Malcolm McClaren, Bomb The Bass, ABC, Charles & Eddie, Malcolm X, Living Color, The Cure, NIN.
He also created the unique sound of Tackhead with Doug Wimbish and Adrian Sherwood.
WAV files are the simpliest and most widely compatible sound files for use with computers and some hardware samplers. If you can't find a 'cleverer' format you can utilise then this might be the best option. You should find any loop content is edited to loop smoothly too which will save you a lot of time versus sampling yourself from audio CDs!
