Rob Papen EDM and Urban Synth Bundle: A Double-Dose of 'Inspiration Software' for Producers of Dance and Dubstep, DnB, Garage and Grime Genres



Wow.  The software excitement just keeps on coming.  The New Beatmaker favourite Rob Papen dropped not one, but two synth bundles this week:
The aptly-named EDM Synth Bundle is a highly-flexible, Herculean offering, with masses of diverse sounds for EDM (electronic dance music) producers and DJs alike. As such, it comprises Predator — a ‘phat’- sounding killer soft synth that combines inspiring presets and first-class features to create the perfect ‘go-to’ synth for contemporary music production; Punch — a speaker-rattling, body-shaking software instrument that delivers synthesized drums in the finest audio quality with breathtaking features for the contemporary music producer; and Blade — a cutting-edge additive synthesis powerhouse with a human touch that all adds up to an amazingly flexible and useful virtual instrument with an able arpeggiator and an array of pitch, modulation, and effects parameters.

Likewise, Urban Synth Bundle has been especially created to cater to the thumping needs of urban music producers of dubstep, drum and bass, garage, and grime genres where bass is the place. This time, the perfect Predator and Punch pairing join musical forces with SubBoomBass, a dedicated virtual bass synth filled to the brim with excessive amounts of low-end ammunition to detonate tracks to the dance floor and beyond! Unsurprisingly, Urban Synth Bundle will also seamlessly fit the workflows of those creating hip-hop, rap, and R&B tracks.

Limited quantities of EDM Synth Bundle and Urban Synth Bundle serial downloads are available to purchase online from authorised Rob Papen dealers worldwide for €199.00 EUR/$239.00 USD/£169.00 GBP each. Alternatively, they can be purchased online directly from Rob Papen from here: http://www.robpapen.com

Georgel ‘Colibrí’

REVIEW: 'Colibrí' highlights Georgel’s potential as a superstar in the making

It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as Georgel’s ‘Colibri’.


A slice of swaggering, sensual, big band pop, ‘Colibri’ is a superb offering from the singer songwriter. 
‘Colibrí’ immediately demands listener attention thanks to punchy horn stabs, satisfying drum fills and Georgel’s strong vocals.  Listener attention is maintained throughout due to the athletic and theatrical flair of both vocals and instrumentation. These theatrics never descend into ham or kitsch.

The hook is slinky and sensual, adding an extra layer to an already super-enjoyable cut. The memorable arrangement and vocals, together with professional mixing and mastering mean the song would be as much at home in a big-budget Hollywood musical or Broadway show as it would be on your favourite music streaming service.


A slice of swag…

The Theory For Our Revenge 'OBORO'

REVIEW: Japanese multimedia art duo make a great first impression with their mix of industrial, trap and operatic pop

The following is a paid for review and post, via humanhuman (see below). 

It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as this first offering from The Theory For Our Revenge is.


The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo.

Their debut single ,'OBORO', is a slice of experimental electro-trap / operatic-art-pop.




Starting with an industrial sounding chugging and churning, the track moves into frosty, haunting melodies.

It's in these opening bars that the only potential hiccup occurs.

Around the 0:38 and 1:12 marks there's a jagged synth whistle which is potentially painful to an earbud wearing listener.

Admittedly I am very sensitive to certain high pitch frequencies.

However, to remedy this I wo…
