OddGrooves Westcoast Drumming

OddGrooves has released Westcoast Drumming, a collection of drum grooves played by Magnus Brandell.

OddGrooves Westcoast Drumming is our homage to a golden era of groove, when the charts were dominated by session drummers such as Jeff Porcaro, Steve Gadd and Bernard Purdie – playing on albums by artists like Bill Champlin, Pages, Boz Scaggs and Steely Dan.

A time before drum machines, quantization and stiff programming. A time of golden groove, when REAL musicians played REAL instruments. THAT’S what the Westcoast Pack is all about.

Westcoast Drumming features

  • A total of 937 grooves, all played live by Magnus Brandell.
  • 7 full songs with several variations of choruses, verses, intros etc.
  • 13 different tempos ranging from 59 to 140 BPM.
  • A whole section of 8th and 16th-note Westcoast Shuffle grooves inspired by drummers such as Jeff Porcaro and Bernard Purdie.
  • Shorter groove variations and fills help you put together your own song sections.
  • MIDI format – mapped for EZdrummer/Superior Drummer, Addictive Drums, Steven Slate, I-MAP and General MIDI.
