IT CAME FROM JAMAICA
Reggae was born in late 1960s Jamaica, growing out of the rocksteady tradition and featuring laid-back rhythms, syncopated, off-beat accents, and big, bottom-heavy basslines that carried the music forward. Soon, Lee “Scratch” Perry started applying effects to reggae classics and created a new style – dub reggae. As dub spread to Europe, it evolved into dub techno and dubstep. Today, the seed of dub reggae is found in much of today’s electronic music, including the hyperactive bass wobbles and groovy, mid-tempo rhythms of U.S. dubstep styles.
BLACK ARC was created in association with Loopmasters.
BLACK ARC starts with a host of sampled acoustic instruments, guitar licks, and syncopated phrases tailored to classic reggae, dub, and reggaeton. Premium synth samples and fresh MASSIVE presets bring BLACK ARC into the 21st century for dub techno, dubstep, and contemporary reggae. And a set of effects kits for dub sirens, delays, and vocal call-outs complete the sonic map for all reggae-inspired productions.
