COLD BEATS SERVED RAW
LONDON GRIT pushes things forward with thunderous bass, 8-bit one-shots, and crunchy glitch and distortion effects to bring the sound of the UK underground grime scene to MASCHINE.
FROM PIRATE RADIO TO MAINSTREAM SPOTLIGHT
Grime started out as the edgier brother of the UK garage scene, originally springing up on pirate radio and underground Internet stations in and around London in the early 2000s. One part hip hop, one part dance music, it distills the thumping, bass-heavy sound of jungle with dancehall rhythms, breakbeats, and an 8-bit PC music aesthetic. Recently, thanks to MCs like Wiley, Stormzy, Skepta, and Dizzee Rascal increasingly in the spotlight, grime has hopped across the pond, converting more and more American listeners.
DIRECT FROM THE UNDERGROUND TO YOUR FINGERTIPS
LONDON GRIT was created with help from some of the top artists in the underground grime scene. Heavy hitters like Roll Deep’s Flowdan and Rinse FM’s JD. Reid, as well as up-and-comers Compa and Ripperman, contributed to the expansion with custom Kits of their own sounds and full-track Projects to use in your own creations. MONARK and MASSIVE presets give your tracks a bone-shaking boom. Vocal stabs, drum glides, and resampled 8-bit trash keyboard and video game sounds add some earcandy. Plus FX macros with tailor-made beat delays, grain stretch, and icy reverbs help push your raw sounds, making them sound bigger and darker.
