JazzHipHop brings the vibes of late ‘80s, early ‘90s sound back into the forefront. Jazz & Hip Hop has been synonymous for decades and show no sign of waning as both continue to inspire new artists and experimentation. They stand out for their musical fingerprints - the textured melodic jazz riffs layered on top of hard-hitting beats, rolling acoustic bass lines, lush Rhodes, hints of strings interspersed with abstract piano chording and more.
JazzHipHop takes inspiration from some of the greats who helped usher the style into the mainstream consciousness: US3, Guru, Pete Rock, Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Digable Planets, Blue Note Records and so many other artists coming together fusing the best of both worlds.
INSIDE THE PACK
What makes this pack stand apart that’s additional is that some of the loops contained within are from the ‘70s, ‘80s & ‘90s. You have an acoustic bass, piano, Rhodes, organ, and other loops that originate from 30- and 40-year-old 2” tape owned by Bill King (Pianist, composer, and arranger who studied with Oscar Peterson, worked with Janis Joplin, Pointer Sisters, Martha Reeves, Chaka Khan) and many jazz artists throughout the ’80s, ‘90s and on.
These vintage sounds are from the ‘70s, ‘80s & ‘90s recording sessions that were done in Atlanta, Georgia at Axis Sounds in the late ‘70s and Toronto, Canada. We took several old reels of 2” tape and had them baked at 130 degrees to help restore enough in a single pass and transferred over to ProTools. From there we cut up and selected some seriously tasty loops that have never been heard nor used before.
JazzHiphop is a collaboration spanning over 40 years and two generations of artists and family utilizing the history of Bill King’s music and 2” tape archives and the production skills of Dubmatix to bring you something very unique and highly usable for years to come.
