A massive new sample collection by Bashiri Johnson, produced by Eric Persing for ILIO.

Imagine a groove, not yet invented.

Imagine a drum, never heard.

Imagine an untamed sonic space.

Bashiri Johnson (Whitney Houston, Miles Davis, Madonna, Saturday Night Live, Celine Dion, Gloria Estefan, Peter Wolf), has dreamed up a new kind of groove library, with sounds both familiar and mysterious, dangerous and beautiful. And mostly, a groove experience you've probably never imagined.

The sounds are organic, metallic, deep and glassy. Some were created by radically conceived, hand-welded instruments, others from more traditional skins and sticks. All of them were played live, some preserved, some liquefied, to create an immense amalgam of earthy and industrial beats.

Bashiri pours his mind and soul directly into his instruments. His accuracy and feel have long been celebrated by musicians the world over. And if you're a fan of Eric Persing, you won't be disappointed by the spacious, round and tasty feel of his mixes and remixes on Ethno Techno.

Loops are provided as Mixes, Elements and Remixes, all Groove Control™ activated. Multisample menus too!

Phil Ramone, legendary producer
"Bashiri never ceases to astonish me; he is always so musical. If one needs to hear and feel music, he is inspirational. The feel, the space, the world sounds, come from a truly gifted man."


David Morales, Grammy nominated artist/remixer/DJ
"Bash is the man. I highly recommend Ethno Techno for those who don't have access to the man himself."
