Unit 3 – AntiGravity Maneuvers – It’s Here
Edge chasing epics of DnB (drum and bass) and 2 Step (garage) under Elastik ordinance. Inside you’ll find the thrill of creation and the acclimation of chiseled craft. The 2 Step material is a rare retro/metro gem, this technique is heard in many commercials and networks.
Drum and Bass is a constantly evolving medium growing larger by the minute, it’s featured across film scores, pop songs or even nu-metal.

Unit 4 – Astral Electro Flux – Because you deserve it!

Overcomplicated synths, perplexed drum tones and inhumane textures provided in abundance. Thousands of chaotically generated inverted loop concepts extracted from analog keys, atmos, fx, percussion and other overboard processing elements.
