Native Instruments have released Concrete Sun, an expansion that honors the unique flavor of modern Japanese Hip Hop. Made by artists from Japan, the punchy beats feature traditional instruments, such as taiko, koto, and shamisen. It’s available for only £44.00.
Hip hop transcends borders with different interpretations around the globe. CONCRETE SUN pays homage to the Japanese hip hop culture, with its heady mix of 90s aesthetics, eclectic gear, and a rich instrumental heritage. Made from the ground up with Japanese artists, the sonic palette of this expansion is as authentic as it is spirited, enriched with elements of traditional Japanese instruments. Drift through mystical synth presets, rhythmical drum kits, and bold loops to take you full circle through a beatmaking mastery.
CONCRETE SUN was made in collaboration with adaptrook, DJ RENA, Itsuka (Charisma.com), midicronica 716, Phennel Kolliander and SPIN MASTER A-1.
