Study the old skool and be the new. Senseless to copy the old. Good to be inspired by the old.
Reggae music is all about the vibes and inspiration.
[quote="DC"]Imho anyone using loops is basicly doing the same as way back with tape slicing. To me that's not making music.[/quote]
Well that is old(er) skool then, isn't it DC?
For the vibes it does not matter if loops are being used or not. Personally I love to listen to a good loop. BIG UP to all crucial loop-creators!!! For a good and pleasant loop won't disappoint you after a minute or an hour. So let a good loop be the foundation of a good tune. Always better than a dull techno-dub tune that bleeds to death after 40 seconds.
Just my humble I-pinion.
