Legendary groove programmer Simeon delivers another stunning sample collection that builds on his legacy of the internationally acclaimed Vinyl Frontier CDs - once again plying his trade in grungy, grimy beats.
This collection features hundreds of his trademark beats, Mini Tracks (with isolated elements!), specially performed bass lines, synth sequences, FX, Pads and more! Beats are all presented with multiple versions of ultrafast rhythm track creation and the 24 song kits typically offer around 8 musical elements that work seamlessly together and are an ideal source of instant inspiration. Although the beats are all programmed from scratch they sound like they've been culled from a top DJ's record collection, complete with crackles as the stylus travels along the gritty grooves.
If you're after a grungy collection of dance samples that drips with attitude then look no further. Simeon's deep knowledge of the groove and production skills give this library an authenticity that make it a valuable addition to any sample library.
All in all, Dirtbag is definitely a good experience. Simeon's signature sounds are present everywhere on this CD which are a definite formula to success. The greasy fretless bass lines are GORGEOUS and the clean, nicely tendered mastering has left me drooling for the type of studio he has.
