Precision-cut loops and quality sounds are integral to electronic music production and performance, even in the analog domain. DJs will be able to sample IRRUPT sounds in the form of the first open-source, copyright-free, physical vinyl release. This tactile vinyl release will showcase IRRUPT’s rock-solid, no-restriction, future-proof licensing structure with an invitation to DJs to freely use the royalty-free loops, without fear of copyright constraints. This double vinyl 12-inch, mastered by engineer Mike Grinser (Aphex Twin, Richie Hawtin) at ManMade Mastering in Berlin, will offer vinyl DJ’s ‘open source tools’ for use in live performance or advanced studio trickery.
IRRUPT will showcase this exclusive to vinyl release alongside the MODEL 1, a purely analogue mixer, engineered by Andy Rigby-Jones and co-designed by Richie Hawtin. MODEL 1 is a performance instrument providing new creative possibilities to artists, and empowering them to PLAYdifferently.
MODEL 1 has been invited to showcase IRRUPT’s latest release at Superbooth 17 – the first European trade fair for electronic musical instruments. Find MODEL 1 at the heart of a performance workflow created by IRRUPT, mixing together audio from various sources including turntables, Eurorack modules, software from Bitwig and Native Instruments, and IRRUPT’s premium royalty-free sounds.
Visit IRRUPT at Booth H326 to check out the performance workflow and grab this vinyl only release, before they are gone.
Release date: April 20, 2017 at Superbooth, Berlin
