June 2014 - He's been there and done that.
What? Performing as a youth MC in the 1980's
and getting yourself released on the then
legendary Greensleeves label. Ever since,
Horseman has been active as a drummer and skillful
MC for him and her and the rest as
well. In other words, here is a veteran DJ
from the Sound System culture and he is
ready to spice up your productions and mixes
in the first volume of DubDrop's Sound
System Vocals series.
Vocals are, together with horns, a much
coveted element for every (DUB) Reggae
producer. For owners of Sound Systems or
selectors, vocals are even essential. This
is where Sound System Vocals series by
DubDrops (yes, from DrumDrops) comes at the
rescue of many, including here in the
Dubroom. To start with part one (and two)
But first: a little musical track
featuring some of Horseman's vocals as they
can be found on part one (and two).
Now, at the
time this is written the Dubroom has
released only one track with Horseman's
voice but when you read this (much) later
than june 27, 2014, chances are that when
you click HERE
you'll find more as more releases are planned
for July. But this gives you an idea
and that idea is very right: this is a true
well of excellent vocals to be used in ways
you know for yourself.
brings us Horseman's raw, heavyweight yet
friendly voice both dry and with a little
bit old-skool reverb/delay for instant use.
This is very comfortable especially when you
are doing a live DJ set and you don't have a
studio mixing board to take the potential of
Horseman's voice to the max because that is
what you can do as well, with a little bit
yourself close to 250 sounds, or just five
when you just download the Demo Package. Or
head straight over to the Dubroom's
review of part two, where a more
in-depth review of the material is already
waiting for you.
