Absence of Essence (AOE) is the Atlanta-based production trio consisting of Darius Kohanim, Knix, and Dee Washington. These artists are collectively responsible for releases on labels like Lobotomy Records, Audio Therapy, Proton Music, AlterImage Recordings, Influx Audio, Hunya Munya, and Emote Music. AOE has worked alongside, and seen their tracks remixed by, the likes of Pig & Dan, Habersham, and a host of other top-tier producers. The AOE members share a passion for the technical aspects of their craft and for the creation of forward-thinking electronic music.
AOE’s re:produce 005 sample pack is the cutting-edge product of three creatively warped minds. This collection is filled with intense, twisted sound effects, rhythmical noise and synth loops, mangled vox effects, and wicked drum patterns with dirty techno undertones. Most of the samples were recorded at 126 bpm, and they are all ready for use in Ableton Live. AOE designed these unique signature sounds using Logic, Cubase, Native Instruments, and several other audio production tools. “We had fun putting this re:produce pack together. We hope you have fun using and abusing these sounds.” – AOE
