DRUM MIDI FUSION GROOVES
THE SOLUTION FOR YOUR FUSION TUNES.
For songs where groove, technicality and that “session drummer” finesse is front and center.
“The process or result of joining two or more things together to form a single entity”.
The general dictionary definition of the word applies perfectly to the music genre as well – it’s a mix of disparate elements from several genres that, put together, make perfect sense. In a seamless merge, it combines the complexity of jazz, the groove of funk and the raw power of rock, particularly when it comes to the drums.
In the Fusion Grooves MIDI pack, drummer Luke Oswald not only draws inspiration from genre forerunners like Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Will Kennedy and Steve Gadd, he also adapts ideas from contemporary players like Lil' John Roberts and Mark Guiliana, while still throwing a big portion of his own personal style into the mix.
- Drum grooves and fills inspired by fusion music
- More than 400 individually played files
- 4/4 in straight and/or swing feel
- Tempos ranging from 90 to 175 BPM
- Song structure categorization (intro, verse, chorus, bridge, fills, etc)
Performed in song structure blocks and with an increasing complexity in each category, this collection of grooves and fills was designed to suit both writers looking to make solid, backbeat-driven rock-fusion as well as the ones that are looking for busy, jazz-inspired beats where the the drums are racing at full engine speed. This is a collection of drums, oozing of that genre-typical technicality and subtlety. All the traits you’d expect are there; the intricate ghost notes, the busy leading-hand work and a slew of that sophisticated “session drummer” finesse that only a great performer can muster.
