Loopmasters has launched Percussive Tech House, a collection of loops and samples by DJ and producer Sonny Wharton.
One of the brightest prospects to emerge from the UK in recent years Sonny Wharton began his musical career as a DJ, gaining recognition by winning a DJ Mag mixtape competition for Renaissance which led onto high profile Ibiza slots at Amnesia, Space, Pacha, Ministry Of Sound and a weekly residency at the infamous Manumission.
Sonny has received regular support from house music heavyweights Pete Tong, Armand Van Helden, Steve Angello, Roger Sanchez and most notably supporting Fatboy Slim on his sell out “Eat Sleep Rave Repeat” tour.
Last summer Sonny clocked up some serious national radio recognition with his single ‘Raindance’ submitted by the legendary Carl Cox for BBC Radio 1’s Ibiza ‘Review Show’ resulting in the prestigious title BBC Radio 1’s ‘Jam of the Week’. His tracks have also featured on primetime TV for Channel 5’s ‘The Gadget Show’, E4’s ‘Misfits’ and MTV.
Producers should expect to find 100 chunky drum loops which also come with a kick free version to allow you to key match your own kick drum to your production, 60 Key Labelled Bass Lines, a very special collection of Percussion and Top Loops, Groove Loops that feature full drums and bass, and a wealth of one shot samples to be used in your favourite sampler of choice.

Producertech has launched Making a Drum & Bass Groove, the first part in a “In the Studio with…” series of video tutorials by colo[r].
In the first of a lengthy three part series, producers Chris Octane and Liam O’Mullane invite you to join them in the studio, where you can observe their methods and advanced techniques for creating a serious Drum and Bass groove. Currently producing as part of newly formed outfit ‘colo[r]’, Chris and Liam bring together a veritable mountain of experience in electronic music production, DJing and sound design.
In the first instalment, Octane and Liam create their signature drum sounds by combining synthesised and acoustic elements. Next, they create a pattern and apply processing and effects to give it the punch and power to carry the track. Their attention to detail is evident when it comes to designing the bass: expertly manipulating synthesisers, filters, and other effects, including altering parameters on the fly using an iPad – which interfaces with Live using Max for Live objects. Following this is a lesson in creating edgy, dynamic percussion using sampling techniques and expansive manipulation. To conclude, colo[r] fine tune the various elements to wrap up the foundations of their new track.
The tutorial course is available for purchase for £19.95 GBP.
