The NI Team continues releasing brand new soundpacks for users of its popular Maschine Production Stations to keep things fresh for aspiring producers when making new tracks and beats. The newest MASCHINE Expansion is called ELASTIC THUMP which brings the sound of UK grime to MASCHINE.  It includes HUGE bass, 8-bit one-shots, and crunchy glitch and distortion effects.

Native Instruments releases MASCHINE Expansion LONDON GRIT
     
New expansion unveils collaboration with London grime artists

Berlin, May 31, 2016 – Native Instruments today releases LONDON GRIT, a new MASCHINE Expansion that brings the sound of UK grime to MASCHINE. Packed with thunderous bass, 8-bit one-shots, and crunchy glitch and distortion effects, it captures the booming rawness of this music genre. While kits and projects from artists in the scene give musicians direct access to sounds and song breakdowns created by the scene’s emerging icons.

Artists JD. Reid and Compa contributed kits using sounds and presets from their libraries. Additionally, Flowdan, JD. Reid, Ripperman, and Compa all created projects in the expansion. Mini songs, projects are patterns that musicians and producers can use as building blocks in their own tracks.

Grime started out as the edgier brother of the UK garage scene, originally springing up on pirate radio and underground Internet stations in and around London in the early 2000s. One part hip hop, one part dance music, it distills the thumping, bass-heavy sound of jungle with dancehall rhythms, breakbeats, and an 8-bit PC music aesthetic. Recently, thanks to MCs like Wiley, Stormzy, Skepta, and Dizzee Rascal increasingly in the spotlight, grime has hopped across the pond, converting more and more American listeners.

LONDON GRIT runs in the latest version of MASCHINE software on the entire MASCHINE hardware family, and is available exclusively at the NI Online Shop.

A compact version of LONDON GRIT is also available as an iMASCHINE 2 Expansion, for sketches on the go. Tracks can be exported to MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE JAM, MASCHINE, and MASCHINE MIKRO for completion.

LONDON GRIT is available now at the NI Online Shop for $49 / 49 € / £44 / ¥ 6,280 / AU$ 79 and runs in the MASCHINE 2 software.

The iMASCHINE 2 expansion is available at the iMASCHINE 2 in-app store for $0.99 / 0,99 € / £0.79 / ¥ 120 / AU$ 1.29
