One of our most popular CDs ever.

Norman's extremely hot at the moment. His remix of Cornershop's No.1 hit 'Brimfull of Asha' has reminded many just what a talented remixer he is. Norman was a founding member of the Housemartins but has since gone on to emulate their chart success with Beats International, Freak Power, Pizza Man and more recently Fat Boy Slim. Freak Power's hit 'Tune In, Turn On, Freak Out' was adopted as the Levi's theme. Norman is also a top DJ and is known to be one of the best judges of dance music in the UK. Norman bitterly regrets giving away so much good stuff on this CD. We'll keep on asking him to do another one but don't hold your breath. If you haven't got this yet, what's keeping you? It still sounds as hot as ever. International number one singles from the No. 1 LP 'You've Come A Long Way Baby' such as 'Rockafeller Skank' and 'Praise You' have made Norman one of the hottest properties around!

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.
