[The Sound Libraries Edition]
Emerging from soundscapes worthy of Hermann Hess' journeyers to the east, this mix soon settles into a mid-paced drive of solid abstract funk and fat breaks. There's no sell-by date on quality, these beats have been re-used and abused by many a hip-hop producer. Play spot the sample and enjoy these timeless gems in all their stripped-down glory.
As the man says, "With the drums you have the capacity to create a mood. It doesn't matter if you're playing in a club, or if you're playing in hall, or if your playing in the streets. It's a responsibility that you have... to create a mood."
Dedicated to the many talented composers, musicians and recording engineers who worked in the library music industry during the 1970s and 80s.
