Recording and Mix engineer Phill Brown and drummer Martyn Barker discuss the making of Folk Rock Drops Volume 2.
17 drum tracks taking influence from a range of mainly modern folk rock tracks with a few old classics thrown in. Recorded at the historic Miloco Livingston Studios in London in the brighter sounding live room this kit was close mic’d. The kit used was Martyn’s 1980’s Gretsch Maple 4416 Kit with stick, hotrods and brushes.
The drum tracks take reference from Artists such as Ray La Montagne, Elliot Smith, Bon Iver, Goldfrapp, Little Feat and Bombay Bicycle Club. Ranging in tempo from 80 BPM to 184 BPM there is a huge range of tracks and grooves to choose from.
The album is available to purchase as Multi-tracks, drum stems and drum loops directly from the Drumdrops store www.drumdrops.com. Due out shortly.
