Industrial Strength has launched Bitz & Piecez, a percussion sample library by NYC percussion legend Bashiri Johnson.
The stunningly comprehensive Bitz & Piecez Vol.1 is testament to the Bash-man’s versatility and uncut originality. Culled from his decades-in-the-making personal collection of world instruments, it’s a head-spinning wealth of One shots, jungle-primed loops, and the authentic stems. This pack features over 1 Gb of Bashiri goodness at your disposal, there are grooves for any style you see fit.
A studio guru as well as a fabled live performer, Johnson is one of the most prolific and sought-after percussionists this side of the galaxy. Revered by producers and stars for his soulfulness and intuition, Bashiri is a world class musician and he has performed and recorded with the likes of Beyonce, Jay-Z, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Miles Davis and the Rolling Stones.
Precise and powerful, Bitz & Piecez Vol.1 was recorded by NYC’s famed Roc Isaacs, who put to tape such names as Run DMC, Mary J. Blige, and Ziggy Marley. Isaacs rendered the cream of Bashiri’s collection in glistening 24-bit, 44.1-kHz samples, while Industrial Strength’s Lenny Dee remixed all the stereo loops.
The sample pack costs £21.95 GBP.
