Garage mechanics produce CD-ROM

Met the programmers on Monday, took them for a drink on Tuesday...      13/09/00
In what would seem to be a first for the genre, the UK Garage scene now has its own sample CD. Gmedia Technology's UK Garidge and 2-Step Grooves features bass instruments, Fender Rhodes-style instruments, organs and drum hits and loops. The title is the result of great swathes of studio time spent programming and editing by programmers such as Shane Meechan (Fatboy Slim/Beverly Knight), Neil Pollard (aka Subphonic) and Gmedia's very own Dave 'Bubblin-from-the-left' Spiers (aka one of the original Twiddly Bits developers). So now you too can sound like the Artful Dodger... To fill you in a little more, the UK Garidge and 2-Step Grooves offers a choice of WAV and AIFF audio loops, MIDI loops, WAV and AIFF individual hits and Creative Labs SoundFonts all on the same CD-ROM. Phew! It costs £29.95. And why the title? Just so the US guys don't get confused with that gnarly lo-fi guitar stuff...
