  • Product Description

      Drops in the Bronx 2 features 15 slabs of funk and hip-hop ranging from 88-108 BPM. The album is performed by Jan Kincaid from the Brand New Heavies who lays down his very own backbeat!

      Drops in the Bronx 2 has been recorded on a 1970s Neve console with 2" analogue tape, vintage microphones and outboard gear. Jan Kincaid plays Ludwig and Gretsch kits with heavy skins, vintage Zildjian hats using snares by Ludwig, Rogers and Slingerland.

      Drops in the Bronx Volume 2 comprises a stellar range of hip hop and funk beats, with a variety of influences and playing styles. Starting with Sugar Hill Gang early rap and funk grooves, you can then sift through Early 80s soul grooves and Block party rap classics. Four to the floor disco grooves, fat hip-hop and funk beats, funky old school rap beats, slack and funky back beats and heavy hip hop grooves offer plenty more to experiment with.

      You can then make the most of a variety of tones and timbres: shuffled hats and claps to chunky hats and fat snares; short snare fills to big tom fills; accented hi hats and syncopated kick patterns to breakdowns and 70s tom sounds. There is a whole barrel of sounds for you to explore to find what suits your track the best.

      Drops in the Bronx Volume 2 is available in three formats - drum multi-tracks, drum stems and drum loops. The Drum Multi-tracks come with a Pro Tools session file, OMF File for importing into other DAW software, beat tempo map to track the live drums and all the audio supplied as 24 bit 44.1 WAV files. The multi-tracks offer you the greatest flexibility but do not come mixed. The drum stems pack contains the mixed drum track and various mixes of the drums usually including the full kit, the kick and the snare. The drums loop packs for each drum track contain on average 20 4-bar loops of each drum performance. These are split again into full mix, the kit, kick and snare and come ready to use as Apple Loops, Rex 2 files and WAVs. You can choose to purchase on a track by track basis or buy the whole album in any of the formats.

      If you are a composer, producer, re-mixer or musician Drops In The Bronx volume 2 will provide endless inspiration for your next record.
