'Dance Glitch Vol 2' continues this hugely versatile series of lo-fi loops for producers of Dance, Glitch, Electro and IDM containing over 800 individual loops supplied in multiple formats. Drums, synths, FX, percussion and more make this a versatile tool kit for modern producers. Producer Jeff Rhodes is back with the second installment in the Dance Glitch series. Using some of the same production techniques employed in our acclaimed Ambient Glitch series, 'Dance Glitch Vol 2' presents you with hundreds of small but useable building blocks suitable for a wide range of electronic music. As with Dance Glitch Vol 1 the range of sounds encompasses conventional electronic sounds as well as more experimental and niché textures. Arpeggios, basslines, tribal percussion and warped effects provide you with more than enough material to let your imagination run wild.
This product includes loops that will work within the following genres: Dance, Glitch, Electro, Tech House, Trip Hop, Dubstep, Drum and Bass, Grime, Industrial, Techno and more. All files are key and tempo tagged for ease of use in your projects, and our Pick 'n' Mix system allows you to download only the formats, or the individual elements within this product which are best for you.
Electronica (BlogsToday) Review:
Smack My Glitch Up!
WELL, they say 'all roads lead to Rome' but here is another case of 'all Rhodes lead to fun'. Top producer Jeff Rhodes is back with another banging volume of Dance Glitch material which will have you crafting your next hit in no time. If you're a fan of dance, glitch, electro and 'intelligent dance music', otherwise known as IDM, then you need look no further.
Glitch has always touched on the weird and wacky end of things but always packs that surprise punch. This is good because listeners are always wondering just 'what comes next?' Jeff has pulled out all the stops again with loop names such as JustinTime, KissMeAcid, KrispySynth to name but three - great to see a sense of humour, too.
Of course the quality and variety is just as good as Dance Glitch Vol 1 and you'll easily spend a good couple of hours trying and testing the musical treats that await you. AND what a bargain! For just under 15 notes you will proudly be the owner of more than 800 loops/samples A deal not to be sniffed at in this day and age.
Dance Glitch Vol2 gives you no fewer than 12 folders of goodies. They contain arps, bass, chord stabs, ducked arps, filtered vocoded glitch beats, kicks/hats, 'machine tribal' - a fascinating line-up of beats with a Bit of bounce thrown in - no-kick loops, percussion, FX (try FeedbackWobbleBass!!!), synths and voices.
The loops range from 120BPM to 140BPM and are all key/tempo marked so there's no faffing about trying to work things out. Dance Glitch 2 does exactly what it says on the tin... simple! ...Roll on Volume Three...! About the Producer:
Jeff Rhodes has been working as a professional sound designer and soundtrack producer for just over a decade now. He is particularly well-known for his three "Pro Sessions" loop libraries that were released through M-Audio. He has also released another six products independently with Todd Milne, with whom he co-founded Perimeter Sound Arts.
Jeff relies on his diverse interests in not only music & audio, but the visual arts too, to guide his muse. Constantly looking to change his style/sound without losing the defining elements. Jeff has found working in audio to be an endless journey of discovery.
