"There’s something about MIDI drum beats made by normal people with conventional tastes that just doesn’t sit right with the rest of us.
Fortunately, the folks at Ugritone are not normal people!
If you like raw, ragged, fast, weird and fun, these are the beats you wanna start unleashing sick riffage over. "
