Features iconic drum breaks, meticulously recorded and reimagined for MASCHINE, Exclusive MASSIVE and MONARK presets designed for rich, melodic bass
DECODED FORMS blazes with deconstructed breaks, evolving pads, disruptive bass, and crisp drums to bring the post-jungle kaleidoscope to MASCHINE.
ALL ABOUT THAT BREAK
Popularized in funk songs of the 60s and 70s, the break was reimagined by the hip hop stylings of DJs and b-boys who sampled the sounds in their sets. Dancefloors in the UK soon caught on, with chopped up breaks as the sped-up backbone of jungle tracks. Then came Autonomic, footwork, and the shifting 80/160 and 85/170 tempos of slow/fast, embraced by artists rejecting the machismo of drum and bass. A new form of music — post jungle — emerged, a synergetic fusion of all that came before.
SPACE AND SOUL
At the core of DECODED FORMS are four iconic drum breaks from the 70s, chosen for their contextual versatility. Each drum break was meticulously recorded to capture the flavor and sonic character of the original. After extending the original loops with improvised phrases, kits were created with each sound deconstructed, dissected, and dismantled into mix-and-match pieces. Additionally, spacey pads and warm chords give the expansion lush, atmospheric textures.
