More info on the Producer
Coldcut have always been at the cutting edge of the UK dance scene, in fact they've probably usually been too far ahead of the trends to achieve the full measure of commercial success their talent has deserved. Their unique approach has won them recognition amongst their peers and established their credentials amongst the UK's leading dance authorities. Aside from their own records they've produced or remixed countless records, have their own record label and radio show, and are heavily involved in multimedia.
They've recently returned with a new LP featuring a CD-ROM of stuff for your computer and produced a widely acclaimed 'Journeys by DJ' mix CD.
"Coldcut's samples are raw, wicked and packed into the terraces...the quality of the music content is very high...quite brilliant, and definately going into my S770...this CD represents another 'must have' for any serious dance enthusiast." - SOS, May 92.
"...this CD is meaty...Probably the most DJ friendly thing not on vinyl." - Mixmag Update, May 93.
"...this library is built to be exploited...Used properly, these sounds are one of the secrets of modern dance music...pre-selected for you by four of the best ears in the business." - Music Technology, June 92.
"...well over 1,000 samples crammed onto this disc awaiting artful
regurgitation." - Melody Maker July 3 1993
Aside from their own successful career they produced the tracks that launched the careers of both Lisa Stansfield and Yazz.
They also have their own record label, Ninja Tunes.
GENERAL: REX files are amazing! They are files created by Propellerhead's ReCycle that scan lice up any suitable rhythmic sample and produce a file that includes the sample data and sequence information. These files can be loaded by many of today's most popular software (Reason, Logic, EXS24, Cubase, Digital Performer, and many more!) and will automatically play at any tempo you choose. The software will also give you loads of additional options that allow you to control much more too - use the groove with other sounds, knock out a specific element or take out hits to use in your own loops, and much more! REX2 files are stereo and REX(1) files mono. MOST software supports both formats. You can even import REX files into ReCycle and export them to the huge number of samplers that supports. REXing files is a very skilled job. Some files are easy but a well-REXed library can take a huge amount of work to create. AMG released the World's first REX and REX2 CDs and have been pioneers of the format. If you've never used REX files check them out, once you've used them you'll never go back!
SPECIFIC: This CD features REX versions of every sample from the collection that is REXable. It also includes WAV files so other sounds are also included.
