Features & Additional information
Loopmasters are proud to announce the first in a four-part collaboration with one of the most exciting and influential labels in modern drum & bass music – The North Quarter. With scene stalwart and Loopmasters alumni Lenzman at the helm, The North Quarter is a source for soulful and fresh high tempo sounds. Volume One comes courtesy of Redeyes, one of the key names from the stable.
Although France might be considered peripheral in the Drum & Bass scene, French producer Redeyes has consistently been on the forefront of the genre. Initially starting as a DJ, Julien Salvi soon found his way to the studio, fine-tuning his own blend of soulful music.
When his first album Poetry In Motion was released in 2008 his international booking schedule took off, and also gained Redeyes the approval of the most renowned people in the Drum & Bass landscape. Since then he has started working closely with Toulouse based imprint Vandal, releasing his second album Part Of Me in 2013 and more recently, his Memory Lane EP series.
Although his preferred tempo is provisionally labelled as Drum & Bass, this container concept is too narrow for Redeyes’ specific sound. Firmly embedded in Hip-Hop aesthetics and its music and culture, it is only natural his influences are also informed by Jazz, Soul, Funk and Dub. Using this palette in different ways, Redeyes has gained traction from such diverse labels as NinjaTune, Tru Thoughts, Brownswood and The North Quarter.
Redeyes’ trademark sound is found in abundance throughout this sample pack for The North Quarter series. With well over 550 MB of content, you’ll hear lush keys, thick pads, deep basslines, addictive percussion rhythms, rave-ready breaks & drum loops and a whole host of various instruments and effects! Everything within has been recorded and processed perfectly to keep your productions sounding modern and pristine.
Loops within play between 170-174bpm making this collection perfect for all styles of drum & bass, including liquid, dancefloor, jungle, rollers and more!
In detail, expect to find 586 MB of content with all audio recorded at 24Bit 44.1KHZ. There are 34 Drum Loops, 32 Top Drum Loops, 27 Bass Loops, 22 Synth Loops, 20 Keys Loops, 8 Percussion Loops and 3 Pad Loops. One-shots are 79 Drum Hits, 35 Instruments, 31 Bass Hits, 31 Percs and 8 Fx. You’ll also find 73 Soft Sampler Patches (for Kontakt, Sampler/EXS24, NNXT and SFZ) and 33 MIDI Files.
