N.Y. Vol.2 Presets - Charles Feelgood
When we heard how electro producer, DJ and remixer Charles Feelgood (Diddy, Lady Gaga, Ashlee Simpson, Billie Holiday) had tweaked the New York Studios Vol. 2 SDX for Superior Drummer 2.0® to almost beyond recognition in his ingenious productions, we had no option but to have him design a unique set of presets so he could share his incomparable brand of electro, house and disco with the world.
Charles' presets will introduce a whole new level to what is possible with the sounds and tools in Superior Drummer 2.0 and prove that the sky is literally the limit.
Legendary for his role in the birth of the electronic music scene in the Baltimore/Washington DC area, Charles has built a reputation as a DJ in the international dance community and is constantly in demand for his ability to light up dance floors across the globe.
Cultivating a fascination with music since childhood, Charles grew up listening to Motown, disco and funk, genres that heavily influenced his personal style as an artist. An integral part of the Baltimore/DC scene, Charles is often credited with helping put the scene on the house music map. In 1992 he joined forces with fellow DJ Scott Henry to launch Fever, a club event that introduced the sounds of electronic music to his hometown. The first event of its kind in that region, the night exploded in popularity almost immediately, attracting upwards of 2,500 people. Featuring such top-notch, internationally renowned talent as Paul Van Dyk, Derrick Carter and Carl Cox, the biweekly event ran through May 2001.
Maintaining a seven-year residency at Fever helped springboard Feelgood's danceable brand of bangin' hard house to widespread exposure across the East Coast. His popularity quickly bloomed thanks in part to his legendary series of mixed tapes "Time to Get Real". He soon developed a club-heavy touring schedule that regularly took him to famed clubs such as Avaland Boston, Sound Factory NYC and Cro Bar along with numerous other venues on US East Coast, in Europe, Asia and South America.
Charles has also been keeping busy in the studio, with several releases making it in the top 100 Chart on Beatport and top 10 on several other digital music sites. Charles recently signed with the mega EDM label Ultra and his first release of many to come is "Hands" featuring Russell Taylor.
Constantly in demand all over the world for his ability to light up dance floors with his sets of electro and tech drenched house, Feelgood has received numerous accolades in his fifteen-year career. These include being named Baltimore's Best DJ as well as being included in DJ magazine's top 100 DJ's several years running.
The consummated dance floor rocker, Feelgood sums up his musical mission in one sentence: "I just want to do what the name implies, to make people have a good time and go home with a great feeling".
