MUSICAL WORKS

Musical Work featuring this product (Free Download)
With the Original drummer of the Roots Radics, you can obviously not go wrong. He knows how to play a Reggae Rhythm, any Reggae Rhythm. 

He comes up with fills and breaks that only an Originator of Reggae Music can think of. Especially when you respectfully let him do what he feels he must do.

Style Scott plays all the rhythms on his own (Ludwig) drum kit so that part shouldn't be a problem either. The sounds are the drum sounds that many look for.

Every rhythm comes with a set of breaks and fills. And of course the introduction roll is there, too! Style Scott really plays the kind of breaks that are simply impossible to program into a drum computer. 

But even the best drummers playing their own rhythms on their own drum kits will not be sufficient for a Sample DVD or even a Multi-Track DVD. 

The requirements of the contemporary (DUB) Reggae Producer are as high as the requirements back in the days when Reggae was Iriginated in Jamaica.

Just different. But the needs are the same. As some would say, "Ire Ites": High Regions, Heights!

The rhythms should be Ire, and the selection should be Ire Ites too. 

All the basic rhythms should be present: from the One Drop and the Steppers to the Two Drop. And they shouldn't all be played in straight, or in swing either.

Don't worry, whoever did the selecting at DRUMDROPS knew exactly what he did. And what the producer needs!

All the rhythms from the days of Rockers to the time of Rub a Dub are covered in the selection. And some of them are even recorded in that time.

THE PERCUSSION

Even though percussion is often placed in the background during a final mix-down, they form an essential part of the drum rhythm for they can create an extra atmosphere on top of the drums.

Every drum rhythm on DRUMDROPS IN DUB VOLUME 1 comes with a wide variety of authentic percussive instruments. Even the famous Rasta Kete drum is present!

Norman Grant and Tuca Rainbow play several tracks on each rhythm, ensuring you with virtual endless possibilities.

Many (DUB) Reggae producers are looking for original Nyabinghy Drumming. They will also find what they are looking for with DRUMDROPS IN DUB VOLUME 1. And it will not surprise them to read that there are several different variations and tempo's on this true Rastafarian Rhythm. 

THE SOUNDS

Everything is recorded on analogue equipment and comes with additional effect-tracks , which you can simply add to the dry drums. 

These effects are impossible to reach with computer software or even with digital devices. 

Sometimes the effects are already mixed together with the drums, in one sound file though. But each time you'll get the dry version too.

These effects are all analogue too. Plate and Spring reverbs, still unmatched by their digital counterparts, stand predominate. 

The effects are beyond the reach of the average DUB producer. Still they form an integral part of the sound that many seek after. 

And there's more effects too, even some "esoteric devices" are used. 

On-U producer Mike Pelanconi and Style Scott himself carefully used these effects to create an authentic sound that is impossible to get elsewhere.

The people at DRUMDROPS have divided the effect-tracks into an "FX" and a "DUB" category and rightfully so. Every (DUB) Reggae producer knows the difference between using an effect to add some spice to a dry track or to DUB it hard!

The FX tracks contain a skillful soundscape that blends perfectly with the dry drums. 

Obviously.... 

Obviously?

No, actually not. 

DUBHEADS wouldn't consider these FX tracks sufficient to get a true spaced-out sound. The King Tubby's among us would have applied a different configuration. 

For them, DRUMDROPS provided DUB tracks with the beats and breaks.

Without these effect tracks, the drums sound fat enough. They make you realize the meaning behind the phrase "Dry & Heavy". 

Every Reggae bassist will immediately hear the bassline (s)he has to play with these tracks. That is a guarantee.

Every true DUB engineer is waiting for dry and heavy drum tracks like these.
