Loopmasters are proud to present AS101, Deep Bass House by Tom Middleton, a fresh and original sample collection that pushes the boundry's of the hotest direction in House music today!
A beard needing little introduction, Tom Middleton, aka Cosmos, aka Tom The Jedi has clocked up 23 years in the industry under as many names as there are genres.
Formerly one half of pioneering electronic act couple Global Communication and nu-new-knew-School Electro Funk 'n' Breakmeats outfit The Jedi Knights. Schooled in '89 by none other than the Aphex Twin, who Tom learned the mystical arts of sampling, analogue synthesis, lo-fi bedroom production and vegetarian midi gastronomy.
Tom has shared the stage with little known local upcoming artists like Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Duran Duran and The Mighty Boosh and remixed many underground and obscure talents like Prince, Coldplay, The Verve, Florence and The Machine, Paloma Faith, Goldfrapp, Orbital, Underworld and Leftfield.
The current Bass House sound which Tom and Lars 'Funk D'Void' dubbed 'Liquatech' over four years ago blends elements of late 80's B-Boy Electro, Detroit Techno, Strictly NY Garage and Warp Bass and Bleeps, R&S Euro Rave, UK Jungle to mid 90's Bukem style Liquid Drum & Bass production trickery and the pre Dubstep era MJ Cole 2 Step sound.
The prominent use of the 808 Kick Drum for playing Bassline characterizes the whole Bass House movement.
Throw in the essence of Tom's Sound Of The Cosmos musical philosophy which combines all his inspirations with trademark cinematic space, atmosphere, deep, warm and emotive pads, chords and strings, memorable bleep toplines, broken chords and cinematic Sci-Fi SFX… and there you have it. DEEP BASS HOUSE.
Expect to find bundles of Raw, Dry, Crusty Synth Essentials including, Multi-Oscillator Stadium Sized Synths, Cone Wobbling Sub Basses, Radiophonic Sci-Fi SFX, Layered Snare Claps, Pre-Swung Hats and Percussion and how about the lowest Kick you've ever heard…note G octave minus 1, weighing in at around 25Hz! Try that for size Luciano and co!

No expense has been spent on meticulously recording for authenticity, raw phatness and vibe using super hi end Tandy, Sanyo and Radioshack circuitry and bouncing to TDK C90 tape on a Walkman for that lush low end bump and sound rounderising. Tom thought popping stuff through the Neve console and pinning the Studer A800 would be a bit too lo-fi and trendy.
