Diaspora Classic Riddims 80’s Dancehall WAV
In the early 80’s, the popular genre of Dancehall music emerged onto the Jamaican music scene, as deejays would take popular songs from the 60’s, and recycle them while adding drum beat from a machine. “Classic Riddims” follows this recipe to the tee, with 15 expertly crafted Melodic Loops featuring huge bass, chopping guitar and piano, and bubbling organs.
In addition, “Classic Riddims” boasts over 120 one-shots with echo and plate reverb effects for the real dub sound. There are also 15 Drum Loops (in 3 varieties, totaling 45 total drum loops!) programmed on a 1986 Yamaha RX-7, recorded through an award winning analog chain of a 1073-style preamp, 1176 compressor, LA-2A compressor, and Pultec EQ. This pack also features over 30 one-shots from the vintage machine for your own custom drum loops.
