more vibes on the way this month
Hey what’s up guys!
Hope you’re all good.
We’ve had a crazy month, making more samples, working on our collab packs still - (STILL!) and have been working on expanding our wavvvy library with different pack series. We’ve got a wavvvy piano pack coming, 4 or 5 producer packs in the works as well as some sequels to the popular trippy drums pack.
We set up our Discord last month which you can join here. There will be collaboration opportunities in the future, competitions, Q and As as well as an easy way to communicate with me and Josh and any other producers or creators on the platform.
We’ve finally released precious gems pt 4 which you can check out here
We’ve expanded on the precious gems sound by incorporating more sounds and samples on top of the modulating and filtered synth lines and making the rhythm even more insane and addictive. This pack is in space.
This month we’re also going to be releasing the Wavvvy x Super Symmetry studio collab pack as well as M.E.G Part 4.
Stay tuned for our townhall where we will be giving away exclusive teases of our upcoming producer collab sample packs.
Aaand if you haven’t already you can get the “wavvvy sampler” here.
We’ve got a few really exciting podcasts this month - the first with Grime and Hip Hop producer Swifta Beater - who has produced award winning work with Stormzy, JME, Kano and other Grime and Hip Hop legends. We spoke about how he ended up working on Stormzy’s debut album “Gang Signs and Prayers” as well as the critically acclaimed work on JME’s song “Man Don’t Care”. Swifter is a truly great producer and we sat down and had a great conversation - I think you guys will find it super useful - be sure to keep an eye out for this one! Check out Swifta’s genius page below..
The second really exciting podcast this month is with Manon Grandjean who has quickly made a name for herself as the go to mix engineer in the UK. She just mixed AJ Tracey’s album “Flu Game“ and Fredo’s top ten album “Money Can’t Buy Happiness “. As well as this she has won 2 Brit awards for her mixing and engineering work with rappers Stormzy and Dave even ending up mixing and engineering on the “Wanna Know” Remix featuring Drake. Manon is amazingly talented and I’m super excited to share her stories with you!
