The first keinemusik Samplepack is completed and now exclusively available at our KM Shop. All sounds were handcrafted by use of analogue gear or recorded live in the booth, before becoming edited and finalized. The core sounds emerged from modular systems and the collection was designed by David Mayer to correspond directly with his personal preferences when making music. That is why the main focus lies on percussive, rough single-shots on one hand and hi-top- and minimal percussion loops on the other. The aim was to crate a library of characteristic sounds that give a different perspective in order to provide some new inspiration.
The project was started at the beginning of 2014. To start with, our long time KM affiliate and friend Marcel NGHT DRPS Kussel was asked if he could help out with some of the work. In the end, most of the recording took place at his NOIZU studio. Thanks for that! The value of this cooperation is priceless. Also Benjamin (TEILE / KOMA) and Sebastian Voigt are thanked for providing their equipment respectively studio places.
Along the way, some pictures and videos were shot, documenting the proces, nothing of which is to be held back from you. We are happy to herewith present to you the ‘making of’ Werkzeug Eins by David Mayer. Enjoy!
After 23 EP-releases today’s Keinemusik publication breaks ranks, making spectacular noises. It is a sound(loop)collection, or rather a samplepak, assembled by David Mayer.
The collection consists of 14 folders, containing close to 600MB of samples, alltogether 701 files, one-shots, sounds and loops. All the core sounds are handcrafted, created by use of analogue and modular hardware or recorded live in the booth. The sound correspond directly with Mayer’s personal preferences when making music, so the pack is based on rough, percussive and simple sounds. The focus lies on single, dry hits and heavily roughened noises and minimalistic, combinable hi-, lo- and percussion-loops.
Recorded in countless nightshifts, painstakingly evaluated, processed and mastered over weeks, the ‘Keinemusik Werkzeug Eins’ by David Mayer is now exclusively available in our KM shop ready for download. Contained in the ZIP are 44.1kHz/24Bit WAVs and AIFFs, all in stereo, loopspeed is 123 bpm… At this point, 1000 thanks again to our creative partner and technical mentor Marcel NGHT DRPS Kussel for his helping hand!
It took a little while but recently the pressing plant pulled an all-nighter to deliver the KM023 vinyl almost in time. If your 1210s are not flexing their biggest smiles right now you should double check that they are not actually broken. However, the record is now available in our KM SHOP and in the recordstore of your trust.
Right before our collective Takeof for Barcelona we had a delivery coming in to our office. The KM023 test pressing inside was immediately checked and verified, the pressingplant has our GO.
Right after that the Vinyl disc was wrapped up for the second time and is now ready to be sent right out again, because we want to make sure this unique copy of ‘After Dark’ reaches one of you as it’s final destination!
So here we go again, kindly inviting you to write us another round of shiny comments right on this post. All entries will take part in the raffle, the winner will be informed via email (please make sure to use a valid addy).
We hope to see some of you in BCN. Have a nice week all of you!
