Swagger

  • Join Us

    Building, cinematic glam rock with pulsing synth bass and screaming leads
  • Generation

    Ballsy distorted bass riff opens to half time rock drums with increasingly dramatic orchestra fills
  • Bite Hard

    Riff-heavy blues rock with industrial percussion and building layers of guitars
  • Route 66

    Dusty blues rock opens with electric guitar and lazy male vocal
  • Let the Dust Settle

    Dark atmosphere opens to determined rock with bass swells, heroic orchestral themes & synth textures

A collaborative recording project with Cavendish Music to create a sample library of epic drums, percussion and metals that would form the foundation of a new library album.

The idea for Swagger came about whilst we were talking with our friends at Cavendish about potential album concepts, and was born out of a simple desire to find a huge room with a great reverb sound and then use the character of that space as the signature sound of an album.

Recording took place in Leeds at the stunning Left Bank Centre, an old church building that is now used as events space. The massive stone columns and arched roof provided an amazing setting for the session, in looks as well as sound. The sounds recorded included Japanese taikos, military snares, full drum kit and metal objects ranging from a rubbish bin to a salad bowl.

Cavendish then took these recordings and created the Swagger sample pack that went out to all of the commissioned composers as part of the album brief. Some of WMP’s tracks that were featured include the riff heavy ‘Bite Hard’ and the cinematic ‘Join Us’. The full album is being released on the 2nd of May 2016.
