This is a look at the studio setup for the first recording session for the next fme album. This session is at Pedigree Cuts studios and HQ in west London. It’s a very exciting project with a distinctly old school flavour. Break beat in this sense means ‘a break in the song and only the beat continues’. The genre break beat gets it’s name from the act of sampling these breaks and using them to create new songs. We used the term gorilla drums to describe the thrown together drum set that included some cymbals I found in a rubbish bin and somewhat unorthodox recording techniques we used this day. One of the old microphones used in the session was a relic from early film recordings in hollywood and the sound it gave us was just brilliant. The shelves to the left of the kit are stacked with analog drum machines and you can bet these will be featuring in the album.
