Celebrating the vitality and excitement of contemporary African music, GLOBAL SHAKE throws off the cliches and blazes a trail across continents to Lisbon, London, New York, and beyond. From the rise of Afro bashment in the UK, to club styles like Afrobeats, gqom, kuduro, kizomba, and Afro house, to the influence on world-conquering artists like Drake and Major Lazer, one thing is clear: Africa is the sound of now. Bursting with infectious melodies, radio-ready vocals, and convention-defying rhythms, GLOBAL SHAKE captures the diverse creativity of contemporary Africa as it overflows onto the international stage.
CLUB-READY COLORS Get inspired with a vivid palette of sounds suitable for any style. GLOBAL SHAKE bounces with lively drums and ear-catching tuned percussion, packed into kits for BATTERY and MASCHINE. New presets for MASSIVE, MONARK, and REAKTOR PRISM give you characteristic bright leads and thick basses bringing the energy of the club to your tracks. Lush guitar licks, percussion, and original vocals were performed and recorded in Ghana, Cape Verde, and South Africa for a brilliantly authentic vibe that elevates your music.
