Distorted Dancefloors covers as many aspects of the outer reaches of dance music as possible including germanic minimal techno, glitchy downtempo electronica, electrobreaks, grime, breakstep and much more. This library will help and inspire the seasoned or rookie producer to go beyond the norms of dance music and get twisted.
The techniques used to create some of these sounds range from the lowest of lo-fi, circuit bent kids toys, audio files spat out by crashing programs, all manner of overdrives, distortions, bitcrushers and downsampling, to the cutting edge of sound, spectral displacements, morphing, granular synthesis and extreme uses of the highest end reverbs, compressors and delays.
Veteran producer Si Begg has been releasing cutting edge electronic music for more than a decade. His body of work has included Peel Sessions, high profile remixes for bands from Lamb to Leftfield, as well his own catalogue for labels including Novamute, Tresor and Ninja Tune. He has also toured worldwide performing live and DJ-ing. More recently he has turned his hand to award winning music and sound design for television and radio.
