The grooves on Rhodium Breaks are, like their namesake, the precious metal Rhodium, rare and precious. This hybrid drum / composition pack fuses the heaviest drum breaks with Funk, Jazz, Hip Hop, Soul and Ambient instrumentation. All of the tracks are heavily influenced by Rare Grooves and Funk, featuring incredible live drum work, all captured on vintage analogue equipment at The Quatermass Sound Lab and engineered by Malcolm Catto (Heliocentrics). To further refine that classic sound, Mike uses a vintage Fender Jazz Bass on all of the tracks together with a late 1960’s Gibson 335 for those classic guitar tones. The weighty drum breaks in this pack appear at tempos between 83BPM to 116BPM, perfect for achieving an authentic Boom Bap drum sound. Like long-lost Funk that never made it out of the vaults, if it’s proper breaks, beats and grooves you're after, look no further!
