Berlin, March 29, 2016 – Native Instruments today released ELASTIC THUMP, a modern, melodic take on future funk that brews the smoothness of R&B with the feel-good vibes of dance music and the bounce of futuristic, beathead culture.
Featuring sounds lovingly recorded from the Roland Juno 106, Moog Minitaur, and Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators, ELASTIC THUMP oozes with analog butteriness, while the Fender Precision bass guitar, Fender Rhodes 73 keyboard, and a variety of vintage drums add a sheen of dust to the sound. And with 120 MASCHINE Drum Synths crafted by LA-based sound designers MSXII, users can shape and design their own signature beats.
Perfect for producers who want to create tracks that satisfy beat-loving head nodders and shuffling club kids in equal measure, ELASTIC THUMP was inspired by artists artists like Kaytranada, Anderson .PAAK, Mr. Carmack, Lakim, Dâm-Funk, and GoldLink.
