In a Nutshell
This CD goes into very bizarre, uncharted territory.
Rock, ethnic and
orchestral percussion are utilised to transport the user on an extraordinary
sonic journey that rarely relates to anything else you'd expect on a drum
loop sample CD. Lose yourself in KLB's unique drumscapes and enjoy something very different from the norm. Sci-Fi, whales, ethnic influences, caverns, babbling brooks, aliens, African & Asian rhythms, and much more make cameo appearances alongside KLB's unique drumming technique with hugely creative results.
Only suitable for adventurous samplists!
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.
"...top value for money...everything you need to get an authentic hip-hop
and 'old skool' feel to your work...the science of scratching records requires the same kind of adroitness as playing lead guitar, and these discs have the equivalent of Jimi Hendrix at the deck, scratching tones, beats and top lines. The results are all incredibly usable and authentic...
Out There contains an amazing array of soundscapes which, in truth, have more to do with Hollywood movie underscores than retro dance music, but are nonetheless superb...What this trilogy doesn't offer is the same old hip hop beats that have been circulating the globe for the past couple of decades. What it does offer is a blueprint for the future of modern backbeat." Sound On Sound

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!
