Let There Be Drums

Optimo

Released: 19th November 2021

Tape£12.99Out of Stock


Tape 009 is here. This is the penultimate tape and it is called “Let There Be Drums”.

Side 1 is subtitled “Let There Be Percussion” and is a celebration of all things percussive. It is very much a mixed mix but is all music played by humans. I dug out so much great music that could have fitted on this that I was tempted to start a whole sub series in this vein, but I think I'll leave that for another decade!


Side 2 is subtitled "Let There Be Breaks" and is a mixed mix of drum heavy, syncopate music, much of of which was originally played by humans and then sampled. It is perhaps one of the closest sides of a tape in the series to how I play when playing for a dancefloor.
