Danny Lewis presents a deconstruction of a heavy underground and raw sound. He reviews his custom made drum rack, explaining how the saturation effect uses drive to vary the texture. the off-beat tones, which compliment the kick-drum, create a bass line effect. He spends a few minutes playing a Beat 1, originally created while on the train, muting and playing various tracks to highlight the amount of programming involved. The beat was played in manually, using a regular keyboard. Next he discusses a rave-ish element of the overall beat. He shows his use of TAL-Reverb to create his effect. He also highlights a pitch-change effect on a bell sample, used to create tension. The saturator, the programming, and the layering all blend together to create this rough mix.
