‘1981’ by Producer Loops and The Sound Of Merlin is a classic 70s to 80s crossover library inspired by the seventies disco tradition with an early eighties vibe to it. While older seventies productions sounded more vintage and tighter, here you can hear the characteristic eighties fueled hyper sound featuring more complex arrangements and more sophisticated mixing. ‘1981’ reflects the early eighties shift towards individual producers who had their own signature sound and invited their own session musicians into the studio.
The drums were played by The Sound Of Merlin’s drummer, Sander de Groot in a dry recording room on a large DS drum set with 2 rack toms and 2 floor toms, a 22 x 18 inch kick drum and a aluminum snare, all meticulously tuned to the key of G minor. Cymbals were manufactured by Murat Diril from Turkey who collaborated with Paiste. In the single hits folder you’ll find 146 individual drums and cymbals sampled in all dynamic steps to blend in (or alter) with the drum loops if desired. 13 microphones were used to record the drums.
Percussionist, Eddy Koopman played the congas, bongos, timbales, cow bell and several shakers, while Dutch singer/dancer Perry Dossett, wrote the lyrics and performed the lead and backing vocals. Further, you’ll find vintage keyboards played by producer Gregor Theelen such as Hohner Clavinet, Hammond organ, Yamaha piano and a Prophet 5 synthesizer.
