Perhaps the decade that shaped the modern world and pop culture more than any other, the sixties certainly had a huge impact on music. Everyone knows all about the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, but alongside them were a host of other bands, singers and songwriters pushing the boundaries of recording and pop.... Burt Bacharach, Joe Meek, Dusty Springfield, Georgie Fame, Tom Jones, Scott Walker....

Many of the drummers and session musicians who played on these hits had cut their teeth in the dance halls and big bands of the fifties so had a certain swing and lightness of touch to their playing that makes their grooves more interesting. They played more quietly too, not least because they were often recorded on few microphones as part of a much larger band, so balancing one’s own instrument to the room was an important skill to acquire.

The styles played were diverse and often fused together... some rock and roll and skiffle grooves, old style Latin and dance rhythms... Blues and soul influences from America and of course the famous Merseybeat sound and London scene too.... And let’s not forget a sharp suited Michael Caine and the sparse jazzy vibe of John Barry’s soundtracks. Obviously far too much to capture on a single album, but for volume one we’ve tried to recreate the sounds and vibes of a few of the early grooves that shaped pop music forever.

Recorded on a lovely old Rogers kit from the era and mic’d up old style in a dry sounding booth, these grooves will help add an authentic 60s vibe to your songs, soundtracks and commercials. As usual, all the drum tracks feature grooves that build and change through different musical sections offering a range of dynamics and fills...all ready for you to use as is or to easily edit into your own arrangement.

Swinging 60s Pop Drops Volume 1 was recorded at Miloco’s The Bridge in London. This writing studio has a perfectly suited small dead booth which was perfect for the sound we were after. The drum tracks were played by London session drummer Tim Weller and recorded and mixed by Drumdrops engineer Ben Thackeray.

The Stems packs have all the separate drum mics, percussion and reverb as separate stems come as full length 24 bit WAVs and these also come with a tempo map. The Stem packs also include the song construction loops (but mixed versions).

    what's inside?
    • A classic mid to up tempo 60s 4/4 pop groove. At 159 bpm this 4/4 groove is on the faster side of mid tempo for the 1960s. It features a driving bass drum pattern that pushes through the bars, but yet is played relatively lightly so doesn't allow its tempo to make it sound overpowering. Starts with a brief bossa nova style introduction before moving to hihat for the verses and ride for the choruses and outro.

    • Based on a Georgie Fame track this is an uptempo sixties pop groove. With a side stick in the verse section and some syncopation this grooves veers between sounding like fast pop and a bossa nova Latin vibe, never quite settling on either. This gives it an interesting feel as it is fast and driving yet manages to stay light and breezy. Features builds and fills, and different sections on snare and side stick, hi hat and ride.1 x Mix and 5 Stems in 24 bit 44.1 kHz WAV files
