Today Native Instruments releases CARBON DECAY, a new Expansion bursting with the turbulent sound of industrial techno.
CARBON DECAY captures a primitive strain of techno that’s shaken the walls of warehouses across the UK and beyond. Its inspiration can be found in the clang of 70s post-punk and industrial, as well as in the tougher elements of rave and hardcore culture.
Created by the Berlin-based sound design and production studio IRRUPT, CARBON DECAY bursts with pummelling kicks, shattered hi hats, and barbed rhythmic sounds – packed into kits for BATTERY and MASCHINE. New synth presets for MASSIVE and MONARK provide analog-style basses, alien stabs, and shifting, organic textures for creating primal techno grooves. Loops created using some of the most revered analog synths and drum machines were pressed to vinyl as locked grooves and carefully sampled for an authentic sound.
