Southern Hip Hop For MASCHINE


Native Instruments has released HEADLAND FLOW, a new MASCHINE Expansion that they say fuses thick grooves from traditional drum machines with live, funky breaks, R&B-flavored instrumentation, and gritty percussion to bring Southern hip hop's musical jambalaya to MASCHINE.Here's the story in their own words...

A versatile toolkit, HEADLAND FLOW has been painstakingly recorded. Each vintage drum set was surrounded by over a dozen different mics all running from an analog mixing board to a stereo bus compressor, giving each hit a penetrating sound that feels like it came from vinyl itself. Legendary bass and electric guitars provide an authentic, analog vibe, while vintage keyboards add distinctively old school melodic elements. This combines an analog, R&B-flavored sound pallette with the power and flexibility of MASCHINE.

Unlike its sample-driven cousins in New York and California, this regional variety of hip hop distinguishes itself with soulful keys, bluesy bass lines, and funky breaks played by live musicians on top of traditional drum machine programming. And although Houston and New Orleans helped lay the groundwork, the epicenter of the "Dirty South" was at the corner of Headland and Delowe, in the heart of  Atlanta's East Point neighborhood.

HEADLAND FLOW runs in the latest MASCHINE software on the entire MASCHINE hardware family and is available exclusively at the NI Online Shop.

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

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