Bless Beats Top Five

 

Bless Beats

Biography

Bless Beats is becoming a staple part of the UK production diet, the 23-year old is already well on his way to joining the likes of Paul Epworth, James Ford and Fraser T Smith, at the top table. Best known for creating Wiley’s 2008 smash ‘Wearing My Rolex’, which debuted at number 2 in the UK singles chart, selling over 300,000 copies. Bless Beats roots might be in the grime of Bow E3 but he has the hunger to experiment and venture out to tinker with the urban pop formula like an East End Gorillaz. ‘I want to be like Moby, Daft Punk and The Prodigy. Known for good music, but music you can have fun with. Fun’s the best formula you can have in life. And I’m winning right now.’ Bless Beats is set to release ‘Let It Go’ Featuring Remi Nicole, Wiley and Plug One (De La Soul)

Ishibashi Bass (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Thor Patches / Bass)

It’s very quirky, that’s what stood out for me, I used it as the main bassline in ‘Let It Go’.

Phase Lead (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Subtractor patches / Mono Synths)

I used this patch in ‘Let It Go’ too, it worked so well as a complimentary synth to the Ishibashi Bass. Together it’s like a call and response theme throughout the song.

Thors Hoover (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Thor Patches / Lead Synths)

I really like the diversity of this one. I used it in ‘Rolex Sweep’; it can be taken so many ways and makes a real distinctive sound.

Lord of the Strings (Reason Factory Sound Bank / All Instruments Patches / Strings)

Such a rich string sound, it felt really dark and dramatic, this really came through on ‘Where’s My Brother’, which starts with strings and it quite dominant throughout.

Sub Bass (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Subtractor patches / Bass)

In a nutshell, it’s got that ‘Ridin’ in Your Jeep’ sound; I used this one on ‘The Rain’.
