TRIP HOP GROOVE LIKE MASSIVE ATTACK TEARDROP @ 80 BPM
This came groove came out whilst I was tracking a new song for Russell Swallow; he’s a brilliant artist with a lot of musical scope and a killer voice. His brief for the track included Massive Attack Teardrop as one of the references, so I spent some time listening to the album it’s on. So, I messed around a little bit between takes, thinking about how Teardrop sounds very delicate. So, delicate was the operative mission when playing the groove.
I’ve mixed it so it’s got a lot of reverb, using the amazing Valhalla Room plugin, and given it a bit of heat with Soundtoys’ excellent Radiator plugin so it sounds a bit more robust whilst still retaining that nice delicate feel to it. You could, of course, add more compression or EQ what I’ve done as you please, or just use it as is… The idea is for you to have fun with it, whether you go for something like the classic Massive Attack Teardrop vibe or something else.
You can download this creative drum beat below and use it to write songs; it’s ready to loop so just drag and drop! Ultimately, I guess I just ask that you credit me if you release your song with the loop in it.
