- Laid back, live R&B grooves. The industry favourite now available in Apple Loops format!
Review Highlights (for previous versions, reviews of this version to follow...)
"...this is a selection of smokin' laid back grooves. They are mainly variations around the old swingbeat bum ba-bum-bum b bum tss bum type thing, all superbly played and recorded, of course...with excellent fills and hits could make superb drum 'n' bass loops if spliced and speeded up, but it's really the swing-back thangs of hip hop, trip hop and hopscotch (er) that benefit from Smokin'...Those after the `real' drum sound will like Smokin'." - Future Music.
Specially recorded 'black' grooves with attitude recorded in the UK and Caribbean. Tony Mason has produced a CD full of freshly recorded dance grooves with a classic feel that will win him a lot of friends. Many of the loops are presented in a number of variations for more flexability. Aside from Tony's superb performances, the CD was entirely recorded using classic analogue processing and recording equipment giving the whole CD a very classic feel.
