Review Highlights

"Killer kick drum work...impossibly difficult snare work...the ensuing result is devastating...a peach...If you don't love Keith's drumming, you haven't listened to it. He is the man machine, easily coping with beats only drum machines should be capable of...a consummate timekeeper. 5 Stars." - Sound On Sound. "...the loop tracks never settle down to a routine: there are always challenging twists and turns to the sound, feel and approach. Many have a unique character, yet leave enough room for your creativity...This set challenges you not to come up with formula music. KLB's mind and talent give you a head start in avoiding the mediocre - don't waste it!." 5 Stars. - Sound On Sound," value for money...everything you need to get an authentic hip-hop and 'old skool' feel to your work...What this doesn't offer is the same old hip hop beats that have been circulating the globe for the past couple of decades. What it does offer is a blueprint for the future of modern backbeat." Sound On Sound
