Modular Series – 004 Drum & Bass is the first release we’ve looked at from UK sample CD company Beatnik. It’s actually one of several releases in their modular series, reviews of the others will be along in due course!. Drum & Bass is described as “If the Music of Good Looking Records, Roni-Size and Adam F are your thing, then the chances are that you’ll understand where Modular Sampler 004 ‘Drum+Bass’ is coming from. Looking to the future rather than sticking with past formulas, Drum+Bass takes a fresh look at Jungle Sample CDs.
Incorporating many live elements such as Drum Patterns and Variations, Sax and Keyboard Licks, along with some excellent Sub Basses, Dream Pads and excellent Construction kits, – before moving to the Darker Side for some harsh reality FX, Pads and Breaks. Loads of single Hit Sounds, Basses, Drum Hits, Rhodes and Whirly patterns and Multi’s are provided, and of course everything is provided with GM compatible Midi-Files so you can make your own edits before you fill the dance floor.”
