The song itself, using the TV broadcast as the raw drums are more audible.
So my goal being to make the most accurate cover as possible, I'd like to ask for some help from you to find the drums loops or sound libraries they've used in this song.
With a few extra piece of info I could find:
- - I wrote a stupidly long analysis where I've analyzed all the percussion tracks, and separated them into their most probably sample format. Also, showing my progress, show some isolated drum tracks. So I definitely encourage you to check this out for some more info! https://gearspace.com/board/electronic- ... rnosc.html
- The sound samples are from the early 2000s most likely, at least from before 2005
- The genre we're looking at is some type of industrial, DnB, Break percussion style samples.
- - Jarre used the same loop (more info on that other post) in Intro Saturée, from his 2006 Water for Life concert
- Similar genre of break drum samples are used in Chronologie 2, at the Gdansk 2005 concert, maybe he got them from the same bag of samples
- At the same Gdansk concert, in the Acropolis song, I managed to find the exact same drum loop in Best Service's XXL 1500 Drum Pack. Maybe that's a good place to look?
Live, loops or samples?
Clearly, it is absolutely possible that some of the tracks were custom made. Nonetheless, the electronic part of the Solidarnosc concert is full playback (except for some Fx and small melodies), so there were no live plays for drums. That's why I'm raising (and hope for) the possibility of loops. JMJ is a sample and synth dude, I doubt they recorded anything "just" for this occasion. So yes, sound libraries, or pre-made loops.
That's all I'm afraid. We also looked at "Methods of Mayhem" Loops for ACID - Industrial Toolkit, it definitely has a similar style, maybe it's a good place to look, but we didn't find anything in there.
Any guesses? Anyone who could help me? It would be super appreciated! I've been looking for this for quite a while!
And more towards music people working in the 2000s, any name suggestion for such drum loops sample packs, to dig into?
I contacted both Francis and Claude, feeling more like Claude worked on the coordination and saw him behind the mixing boards during production in some behind the scenes. No replies, so I didn't try to bother them much, turned towards forums. Hoping I could find some extra help! Or anyone else I could reach out to?
