DRUMDROPS IN DUB - HORSEMAN (2)

Get Horseman Drumdrops

In short, we wanted to know if it was interesting for a computer-based (DUB) Reggae producer to purchase DRUMDROPS IN DUB VOLUME TWO. 

Even when you allready have the DVD's with Style Scott, is there any use in purchasing this one with Horseman?

Comparing Style Scott with Horseman is kind of fruitfull. No, it's not a matter of "who's best". That battle is not for the strong, as some would say. But Style and Horseman both have their areas of expertize and that makes it interesting to compare.

Check this: Style Scott has worked in the Jamaican studio Channel One with the Roots Radics. He played quite a number of tracks that were later used by Scientist. Horseman has worked with the Mad Professor and JAH Shaka. 

A first difference that is crucial to understand. 

Keyword: DUB!

There is a big difference between the DUB from Scientist and that from JAH Shaka and Mad Professor. Where Scientist and the Roots Radics produced their musical works in Jamaica, Mad Professor and JAH Shaka chanted down Babylon in the midst of the UK. 

And everybody knows, that UK DUB stands for some of the fattest and hardest drum and basslines  ever produced. 

And when it comes to UK DUB, Horseman knows what he's doing.

He took his band to the studio, where On-U sound engineer Mike Pelanconi was waiting to capture the sound of the drums on analog tape. A very important aspect of the DRUMDROPS series, that should not be underestimated.

Imagine yourself standing in the recording room. You hear the drums. You see Horseman with his drum sticks. It's a great experience, but you hear that a lot has to be done before the sound of the drums is acceptable for use in a mix. This is where the recording engineer comes in.

For the DRUMDROPS IN DUB serial, Mike Pelanconi used only analog equipment. A Neva mixing board from the 1970's, tape, compression, and as said a Spring Reverb to complete the sound. A sound that can never be achieved without actually having a studio with the analog hardware. A sound that is much sought after, too!
