A massive new sample collection by Bashiri Johnson, produced by Eric Persing for ILIO.
Imagine a groove, not yet invented.
Imagine a drum, never heard.
Imagine an untamed sonic space.
Bashiri Johnson (Whitney Houston, Miles Davis, Madonna, Saturday Night
Live, Celine Dion, Gloria Estefan, Peter Wolf), has dreamed up a new kind
of groove library, with sounds both familiar and mysterious, dangerous
and beautiful. And mostly, a groove experience you've probably never imagined.
The sounds are organic, metallic, deep and glassy. Some were created by
radically conceived, hand-welded instruments, others from more traditional
skins and sticks. All of them were played live, some preserved, some liquefied,
to create an immense amalgam of earthy and industrial beats.
Bashiri pours his mind and soul directly into his instruments. His accuracy
and feel have long been celebrated by musicians the world over. And if
you're a fan of Eric Persing, you won't be disappointed by the spacious,
round and tasty feel of his mixes and remixes on Ethno Techno.
Loops are provided as Mixes, Elements and Remixes, all Groove Control
activated. Multisample menus too!
