about

"In The Pocket" - A library record containing 16 drum breaks, compositions w/ stems & misc percussion. Recorded to a Raindirk Audio Symphony LN2 console on to 1/2” tape, then mixed and mastered.

The digital version contains bonus breaks and stems.

“As a sampling artist, I’m always looking for breaks or for that matter any kind of drum hit to use. There’s something about those textures and natural harmonics you get from sampling vinyl that you just can’t beat, so when Dan asked if I’d be interested in putting a library record together for KingUnderground, it was a no brainer!”

“I was lucky enough to grow up on a beautiful farm in Suffolk and when I was a teenager my dad bought a second-hand snooker table that we set up in the same room as the drum kit. So the theme for this was easy, Snooker/Breaks. Since my childhood these two things have been synonymous.” – Jonny Drop

about

Jonny Drop UK

Though an experienced beat maker, until now Drop is best known in funk and soul circles as one quarter of The Expansions and for elevating rhythm sections as live drummer for Andrew Ashong, The Gene Dudley Group (Wah Wah 45s) and more.

He has a record collection most would be jealous of. Diverse but firmly rooted in soul, as anyone at his vinyl-only DJ residencies in the capital will testify.
