This is a unique and exclusive recording of two of the most important drummers in popular music. Clyde Stubblefield and John "Jab’o" Starks.

On their own or in tandem, Starks and Stubblefield were the principal drummers for the Godfather of Soul and Funk, Mr. James Brown. Fans and critics alike cite their collective era in Brown's band as the pinnacle of Funk. Their combined drumming on the classic double-album "Sex Machine" is some of the most innovative, inspired and funky playing ever recorded.

Samples and looped audio of their original beats and breaks would go on to become the foundation of Hip-Hop. Their breaks gave birth to countless genres reaching deep into the realms of underground, experimental and popular music. It is also crucial to note that the use of their breaks inspired innovation within the techniques of DJ-ing and sample based production, thus making Starks and Stubblefield the most sampled and influential drummers in modern day music.

Toontrack Music has sampled both their unique sound and grooves.

We at Toontrack Music are honored and humbled to have worked with these masters. As fans and lovers of music, we wish to express our deepest appreciation and gratitude for the legacy that “Jab’o” and Clyde have given us all.

The Funkmasters EZX feature two kit interfaces, one for Clyde and one for ”Jab’o”. The EZX also features effects sliders in the EZmixer, a Vinyl effect created with the use of iZotope's Vinyl plug in and a large Plate reverb resampled at Toontrack Music Studios, UmeÂ, delivering all that you need to create those real sounding Funk tracks.
