In an interesting turn of affairs, a sample house better-known for its long-running 'Bass House' and 'Drum And Bass' sets is pimping a loop pack chock full of upfront ukulele riffs. OK, they've also got a few 'Vintage Guitar' titles under their belts, but when was the last time you heard a George Formby remix up in da club? Maybe that's all going to change. The team at DABRO, along with the composer and musician Kurmax, have whipped up more than 500 loops, chords, twangs, and strokes from this unexpectedly warm and atmospheric instrument. The 'uke' of choice is an electro-acoustic number, so it throws off any of that seaside sing-a-long vibe your grandparents would bust shapes to. And the results sit surprisingly snugly on many upfront beats, ranging from hip-hop to indie rock. The perfect soundtrack to cleaning (modern) window, then.
