The Sadhus of Bass: mpc2000 + turntables + tabla
Ameet uses the turntable as a pure instrument, applying skratches and abstractions to create the lush atmosphere of sadubas. Attuned to lounge and downtempo grooves, Ameet lays down the deepest bass kicks driven by the mpc2000.

Turntables - With far more utility than simply playing vinyls, Technics 1200s are instruments with profound tonal capability and versatility. Needles interact with grooves on vinyl records and combine with precise hand moves on a skratch mixer to produce sadubas' abstract sounds.
Akai mpc2000 - The quintessential machine for creating beats, the mpc2000 is a sampler, drum machine, and sequencer in one. With a touch sensitive pad array, the mpc2000 creates sadubas' humanized textures and bassy rhythm patterns.
Tabla - Tablas are sacred classical south Asian drums evolving from a thousands of years old tradition of rhythm. The wide spectrum tonality combined with an intricate drumming language combine to make the tabla ideal for electronic music composition.
