STRICTLY ROOTS REGGAE VOL 3
Going deeper and even heavier, Strictly Roots Reggae Series Vol 3 continues the 70s roots reggae journey with tight, on-point live performances for each instrument. Strictly live, no midi. The human element is a key component and this pack is all about the subtle imperfections that give life, nuance, and that special vibe that can’t be found with programmed music.
Live instrumentation and performance: the focus for this pack is on the “human” element. There are slight imperfections, timing moments that just miss the “quantized beat”, notes that add a shade of “blue”, a little natural hiss that emanates from guitar amps, and bits of noise from analog equipment - all with the aim to provide a more natural sound you might hear in any of the classic studios of 70s Jamaica.
