Abstract Rhythm Drum Loop of the Day


Drum Loop of the Daze..


The Abstract Rhythm Drum Loop of the day series continues… it has been 35 days here and the loops don’t stop!


This has been a great endeavor for myself and one Ryan Ramierz as we work both of our setups to give you the phattest, gnarliest loops processed chopped and served in a particularly Abstract fashion.


When I started this project I had no idea what type of work would be entailed with coming up with a loop-a-day. I’ve consistently tried to keep the creative aspect of these loops high with an emphasis on diversity in tempos and textures. As you can guess it has been a daily process with me the studio working on editing and post fx. Me an Ryan have been recording about 15-20hrs a week, you can listen to the latest fruits of our loops here:
