We’re Always Chopping Wood in the Beat Shed

During the building of The Beat Shed website, and the recording of the Beats, there was ONE really frustrating factor.

ALL those Beats we wanted to record and release for the launch couldn’t. Why can’t we include this? Let’s just wait until that? Can’t wait to record this other thing!

Well, we have a list of Beats we want to record. A MASSIVE list. Unlike most lists in life… we can’t wait to get started.

Here’s what we’ve got planned…

Song Packs

  • “Bitter Sister” – medium tuned snare, massive toms, plastic block, quick fills, double time, heavy hitting – 160BPM
  • “Nutter” – Rock/Punk – high tuned snare, little toms, loads of fills, loads of pushes – 160BPM
  • “WedgeJammer/HedgeSlammer” – Funky MASSIVE 80’s reverbs! Really tight.
  • “Brother, You Would’ve Come Over” – HotRods, then get big and heavy with sticks.

We’re Also Looking at a Whole New Concept: Clickless Songs

This is something we’re very excited about introducing. The idea is you have a Song Pack like any other on the Beat Shed, that is BASED on a tempo, but it is played entirely without a click track. It might sound terrible when you try and put the sections back together in a random order, but it might just sound AMAZING. We’re going to aim for the amazing option. We’ll let you know how we get on.
