Zero-G The Operating Table
A stunning breakbeat collection featuring irresistible feel and compelling usability. Produced by multi AWARD-winning sample CD producer Emre Ramazanoglu in London, who has produced for The Prodigy and William Orbit.
These breakbeats derive their feel and sonic basis from live drumming technique performed by four featured drummers. With equal emphasis on diversity of sound and quality of performance, these unique-sounding breaks were created via extremely creative processing techniques, but with the real feel of a performance.
This amazing groove collection features breaks with irresistible feel and compelling usability, which, although they derive their feel and sonic basis from live drumming technique, are very creatively processed, and were performed by one of four featured drummers (Emre Ramazanoglu or Dave Westlake, with contributions from Jack Yglesias and Steve Ashmore). The recordings were made in London at Metropolis, Padded Cell, Walworth Cage, Triangle, and Line of Flight.
This project was conceived as a much more powerful alternative to "genre-based" sample libraries, offering sample-accurate live drum loops with an equal emphasis on diversity of sound through extremely creative processing techiques, but with the real feel of a human performance.
Many performances changes and evolve, providing multiple loop variations. Real kits are the foundation of the sound of each break, although some incorporate additional live triggered analog drum machines or software triggered sounds. Each bar of each break has been designed to loop perfectly as a 1 bar break (sample accurate BPM), or as part of the whole evolving sequence.
Emre Ramazanoglu is a London Based session drummer and producer whose recent credits include The Prodigy, William Orbit, Tricky, Bobby Gillespie, Tom Middleton and Sikth. Dave Westlake is the drummer with the Sneaker Pimps and session drummer for Medieval Babes amongst others.
