'Experimental Dubstep Vol 2' marks the second installment of this exciting new series from Producer Loops. Jeff Rhodes, creator of 'Ambient Glitch', 'Dance Glitch', and co-creator of the 'World Tek' series, delivers FIVE outstanding Construction Kits packed full of immovable basses, irresistible grooves, and synths stacked chest high.
With his first foray into Construction Kits, Jeff wanted to create some compelling set pieces for your audio movies to take place in. A sense of place and space, somewhere things happen, grow, and change unexpectedly over time. while also leaving room for musicians to add their own heroes and villians, and decide the ultimate course of events.
With a unique and quirky vibe, 'Experimental Dubstep Vol 2' takes that familiar half time groove and infuses it with experimental processing, abstract melodies and dizzying electronic ambience – perfect for all of you mad-dub-scientists out there!
All loops are recorded at 140 BPM in this unmissable volume, so you can mix and match between the kits and use them in many other styles of music.
The Production Process: Jeff Rhodes, producer of 'Experimental Dubstep Vol 2', describes the production process - "I've always liked mixing things up, and anything as heavy and sci-fi sounding as Dubstep was just naturally going to find it's way into my head.
By the time I got into really investigating Dubstep, it had evolved into such a powerful sound that it was impossible to ignore and I had to get my hands on it. I wanted to use the momentum of all the wobble basses, tweak the videogame synth sounds, ride the triplet hi-hat rhythms, and nail down the tight kick & snare beat that drives this energetic new music.
The goal was to get into the sound of it, but to still keep a little bit of that outsider style going on. The touch of industrial music influence I tried to add was what I feel makes it all fall into place in these kits.
I found myself reaching for the compressor a lot, as well as all manner of distortions and bit crushers to shape the sound. And the FX breaks were like an all expenses paid vacation! What more can I say about getting to make such chaotic soundscapes in the middle of a track?
It's not often that a person gets to throw out the rulebook and still succeed, but Dubstep seems to be a place you can do that, and everyone is invited. I hope you dig what you hear and find some cool new ways to make it part of your music."
All Kits are provided in a uniform tempo ensuring that they slot together effortlessly and are available as ACIDized WAV, Apple Loops, REX and Reason ReFill.
