Drumdrops brings you 'Now That's What I call 80's Drums'. Featuring twenty 80s Pop drum tracks ranging from 71BPM to 179BPM, this is a wide-ranging collection of 1980s drum tracks. It takes influences from a variety of 1980s acts, with nods towards drum grooves synonymous with the styles of George Michael, De La Soul, Soul 2 Soul, Happy Mondays, Michael Jackson and Depeche Mode, to name a few.
Performing the tracks is drummer Steve Sidelnyk (Madonna, Annie Lennox, Massive Attack), who began his career in the 1980s. The album was recorded by Brit Award-winning producer/engineer Chris Potter (The Verve, U2). Recording took place at Miloco's Sofa Sound studios in West London, which is owned by producer Hugh Padgham (The Police, Genesis, Phil Collins).
Recorded on an SSL E-Series console and a rack of vintage Neve 1081s and 1064s, they were able to record an authentic 80s Pop Drum sound. All of the drum tracks were recorded to 2" 24-track tape on a Studer A800 tape machine, while the live room added a suitably controlled drum sound.
A DW Collector Series drum kit was used for this recording. The snare drums used were a Ludwig Black Beauty, Ludwig Coliseum and a DW Craviotto. The kit was fitted with Evans drum heads, and nineteen microphones were used to record it, ensuring what we at Drumdrops believe is the best sound possible - have a listen for yourself.
