This Valentines Day, we’re excited to release Heart Breaks – a collection of original live drum breaks from Matt McGinley (drum person and backbone of the band Gym Class Heroes). It’s roomy, ambient, and downtempo – in the vein of Portishead, Bjork, Massive Attack, etc. Perfect for all your sad and bitter production needs.
Recorded in New York @ Watchmen Studios:
- 12 original downtempo drum breaks played by Matt McGinley of Gym Class Heroes.
- Ludwig Black Beauty Snare, SJC Custom Drums, Zildjian K Cymbals -> AKG, Sennheiser Mic’s -> Toft ATB 24 Console
- Carefully mixed, bathed in verb & tape echo and left with about -3db of headroom. In case that’s too much sexy for you, we’re also including the dry mix!
- Simply recorded in a small room with a pair of overhead’s and a room mic.
This package of drum breaks is on the house (FREE) – pass it around or be greedy and keep it to yourself. Whatever. We really dig it and we hope you will to.
This March, keep an eye out for Coffee Breaks; an exhaustive collection of Matt’s original drum breaks, fills, and one-hits in the spirit of classic funk and hip-hop records + mixed by Monosole Music’s Timmy Rickard (Bap To The Future, Tape To Dub Plate, Dirty Arse Drum Breaks, etc.)
