Ohm Force and Jagz Kooner unveil the full stems of Autokratz’ “KICK” track

Ohm Force has announced another free OhmfriendsONLY, a series of free downloads available from the Ohm Force Facebook page.

We keep going with our wish to regularly provide – always in partnership with a friend artist/company – some quality free stuff to our ohmfriends and to any music producer out there! Because it’s all about music after all…

It all happens from our Facebook goodies page, called “OhmfriendsONLY”. Puremagnetik, Big Chocolate and Loopmasters have been our 3 partners so far, the response growing day after day!

This time we joined with top producer JAGZ KOONER and the electro-rock duo AUTOKRATZ, providing (for free!) an exclusive pack containing all the stems from Autokratz’ “Kick” track. A track by track bounce of the whole project, so with independent tracks for each instrument, independent left + right tracks for a few buses (drums, lead synth) a true 800Mb stems pack that will give you a sneak peak on Jagz’ production tricks!

If you have already listened to Primal Scream’s mythical “XTRMNTR” album, “Enemies Like This” from Radio4 or even “Invaders Must Die” from The Prodigy; you’ve already listened to Jagz Konner. He’s a longtime ohmfriend and has helped us a lot spreading the Ohm word within those who enjoy a hot, heavy and distorted sound – be it electronic or rock!

During the last weeks he’s been in studio with Autokratz, and band that perfectly illustrates his electronic/rock crossover sound. As long as it’s good and warm, who cares if it’s a guitar or a synth? The new Autokratz album is called “Self Help For Beginners” and is scheduled to be released only in June 20th, but Jagz is unveiling right now the stems of “Kick”, the track he’s been working on! You can remix it, grab sounds and loops to inspire your next productions or just take a look at how Jagz make his signature sound. Have fun!

The free sample pack is available to download from the Ohm Force Facebook page. Those who don’t have a Facebook account can request the download per email or Twitter.
