The samples provide great inspiration to create music based on musically appealing guitar loops, and on top of that, there is a dry and wet version of the same loops. This means, you can mix a dry guitar sample with the wet sample (wet being processed through vintage effects such as Space echo, dynacord and others) to get incredibly live results as you please.
In Detail expect to find 2.16Gb of 24Bit 44.1Khz loops with 143 Dry Guitar Loops, 142 Spaced Guitar Loops, 79 Room Guitar Loops and 138 Fully Mixed Guitar Loops and 385 Rex2 Files. The Collection can also be purchased in Apple Loop format for Logic Pro/X users.
I am delighted to have my samples released by such a great company. After the successful release of “Space Guitars” free sample pack, which received a lot of attention from blogs around the world, this time it is a proper release and hopefully will reach even more music producers out there who are searching for new avenues of creativity. A video tutorial for the pack will be ready in the next few days and will be posted here on the blog.
A recent collaboration between producer Tito (known for his duo ‘Echo & Tito‘) and Yuvi Gerstein, has produced this new balkan/middle eastern groove track
Named after the famous little houmus spot in Florentin, Tel Aviv, where the two producers work. The track also features one of the up and coming DJs from Tel Aviv, Tunymator, who demonstrates his awesome scratching abilities and adds his flavor to the track.
In the past few months I have been working with a wonderful singer named Oshrat Masala. Masala is an Israeli singer of Ethiopian background and her songs beautifully melt her Israeli side with her Ethiopian heritage. I’ve had the pleasure of producing, playing most of the instruments and mixing her first single “So much noise” (Kama Raash), as well as producing her debut album, which is set to be recorded in April 2015. The wonderful Daniel Freedman played drums on this track. To support her efforts to put her music out there, you can buy the album in advance on her Headstart campaign page.
Given the success of the first Space guitars sample pack, which received lots of attention in blogs and producer websites and thousands of downloads over the past year, Yuvi Gerstein announces a new space guitars sample pack, which will be released by a world famous sample company.The pack is set for release in April 2015. More details to follow soon.
Namvula is a London based singer songwriter who has just released her debut album, produced by bass player/producer extraordinaire Liran Donin. I had the honor to be featured on guitar in the first track of the album. It’s a groovy song, with some African style guitars. Listen to ‘Yumya Moyo‘
From Namvula’s bandcamp: ‘Zambian-Scottish singer and songwriter Namvula fuses the folk and urban traditions of her Zambian homeland with London’s eclectic music scene, blending African sounds and rhythms with Latin, jazz and folk into uplifting and emotive songs.’
I have been working with singer songwriter Leslie Phillips for a couple of years now. We have a great time writing together and performing our original songs. Here is a new song we recorded a while ago in London at Offtape studios. It’s entitled “Spiders“, enjoy!
Recently I worked on an international ad starring football legend Hernan Crespo of Argentina. The ad is for a company called Eztrader who specialise in online stock trading. It is featured on their homepage as seen in the image above as well.
It was filmed in Tel Aviv and I composed the music, as well as the sound design and speech editing and mixing. The ad was produced in two versions and in three languages (English, Spanish and Italian) and was viewed by over 30K people up until now. Here is the English version:
M.ward is one of my favourite singer songwriters of our time. His gentle style of folk rock, his incredible guitar playing and his beautiful dark crispy voice (yes, it’s crispy). I had the opportunity to see him perform twice. The first time was in 2006 in Paris, France. It was an acoustic set which blew me away and turned me into his fan ever since. The second time was in London where he opened for the wonderful Feist. It wasn’t as good as the acoustic set, but it was still well worth it.
Tonight (June 25th 2014) M.ward is performing in Tel Aviv and as a tribute, I recorded a cover of his song “Chinese Translation”. A simple recording in my studio with no overdubs, just vocals and acoustic guitar together. Here goes;
The song released today was produced by Yuvi Gerstein at the slick studios in Tel Aviv. It features a heavy synth line, a cool drum break that sounds vintage but it’s newly made and some awesome rhymes from Rebel Sun (Coolooloosh). The track has been released on Gerstein’s soundcloud and is a free download for a limited time.
A new song by Yuvi Gerstein featuring vocals by London based singer Priscilla Andersohn has been released. The song has a middle eastern, afro beat vibes with a great vocal performance by Andersohn. It was based on a drum loop by Yogi Shetrit of Coolooloosh.
