Volume six contains 204 original drum breaks created using brushes. The tempos range from 85 to 100 bpm, and were specifically selected to represent the boom bap genre. Each break is provided as a pre-vinyl master and a vinyl-pressed version. Recorded directly onto analogue tape using three microphones, a close mic on the kick drum, a close mic on the snare and an overhead mic. Mixed using analogue compressors and eq’s before being sent to a Neumann cutting lathe.
