Continuing on with more dope music from the label, King Underground are branching out (see what we did there) into library music. Their latest and greatest is Hidden Cymbals, with Karl Morgan on the drums and Daverage on bass. Mastered by Pete Norman, this seven song LP sees the working and session musician (in almost every genre) as well as drum teacher get down and with influences from DeWolfe, KPM, Kingsway Music, and the like to bring you some quality library music from start to finish. These seven original compositions come with both bass and drum stems, fifteen original drum breaks, open hits and percussion (these knock people!), and enough stuff to chop like a lumberjack if you know what we mean. Their attention to all the details, big and small, as well as straight up pro techniques are a huge plus with this project. Another plus is that you get the warmth of the vinyl record to either play along (basement and bedroom musicians have at it) or for the producers to get busy with as well. It’s heavy hitting on both ends; the drums are killer crisp and ripe for the picking, while the bass hits hard as well (and who also doesn’t want to play along to or chop up a good bass line?). We’re hoping that this will be the first in a long line of library records that they’ll be putting out. It would be good to see the King Underground name in there with the greats in years to come. This label works hard and it shows in their output. The album is available for purchase now and ships out on July 17th.
