The talk of the town right now is “Aquasky: Future Jungle & Drumstep” by Monster Sounds, a genre deeply rooted in the legendary Rave culture of the UK. This pack pays homage to the classic era of the early-to-mid 90s, which defined Drum and Bass and Rave music.
However, “Aquasky: Future Jungle & Drumstep” takes a contemporary approach, incorporating modern production techniques to bring it up-to-date. Building on the success of their recent album “Raise the Devil,” which delved into the darker and heavier realms of Breakbeat, Dubstep, Drumstep, Ragga, and Bass, the label owners of Monster Sounds, Aquasky, proudly present this sample pack that defies genre boundaries.
Monster Sounds: Aquasky Future Jungle & Drumstep
Aquasky has always been known for blending different styles to create an intense, unapologetic sound that hits you head-on, and 2012 is no exception. They’ve gathered their expertise in crafting big, bold basslines, rolling breaks, and monumental musical drops that take you on a captivating journey, only to slam you back onto the dancefloor with an explosive BOOM!
The beauty of this pack and the production styles of Aquasky is that it seamlessly flips between the different genres and tempos but still keeps a consistency of the trademark raw, in your face sound.
The parts can just as easily work in a 140 future Jungle tune as it does being flipped into a Drumstep or D&B track, or even used in other genres!
There is a massive amount of scope here for all professional and up-and-coming producers to go in deep and rock the studio session.
To get the right sound for the pack the guys dug deep and got some dusty boxes down from the loft to find their original patches from some of the analogue gear they used back in the days when they hung around at the mythical Speed night with the likes of Fabio, Bukem, Wax Doctor and all the masses of influential labels and DJ’s of that era.
This aint just about the old sounds tho! There is also a huge amount of the most upfront sounding riffs, beats, bass and synth lines bringing alive the Future Jungle name along with some huge bass and synth multi patches taken directly from the Aquasky hard drive.
Within this captivating content lies an assortment of captivating sounds utilized to craft the exceptional album known as ‘Raise the Devil’. Not only that, but it also contains an abundance of sounds that have yet to be experienced by the outside world!
In order to infuse an authentic Dancehall vibe while staying true to previous Monster Sounds releases, the talented vocalists CoGee, M-Tek, and Pedro Slimer, collectively known as The RTC Crew and mentored by the Ragga Twins, have been recruited. These remarkable individuals, accompanied by Flinty Badman and Deman Rockas, bring their dynamic vocal prowess to the table, providing an array of impactful vocal samples ranging from one-shots, shouts, freestyles, to full verses. These vocal offerings are ready to be seamlessly integrated into any track, ensuring a lively atmosphere at any event. Whether you’re producing captivating “Bass Music” in various genres or exploring different tempos, this pack offers the diverse tools and inspiration you seek.
