Splice Originals Werthwhile Breaks with Nate Werth WAV
We teamed up with Grammy-Award winning percussionist Nate Werth to record his eclectic collection of percussive objects. Nate built his career by fusing traditional and non-traditional percussion instruments to transmit his roundhouse-punch polyrhythms and teeth-chattering grooves, which earned him collaborations with artists from every genre and generation you’d imagine, and many you wouldn’t (Snarky Puppy, Q-Tip, and David Crosby in the same breath).
He brings this same curiosity and skill to his explorations and performance for Splice, playing everything from African frame drums adorned with shimmering, ornamental rings to brass elephant bells from India. We captured everything at Atlantic Studios in Brooklyn with an array of different mics running through Neve 1073 pre-amps, then chopped the recordings into this collection of hypnotic loops and one-shots. Stylistically, this pack is agnostic, containing both pin-drop and heart-pounding percussion. Use it on anything that requires labyrinthine rhythms and dust-shaking drum breaks, from ambient to anger-core.
Splice-produced recording sessions and sample collections from acclaimed musicians with unique perspectives, with each pack focused on a specific instrument, sound or performance.
