The Verticals - About us

New York Underground House Beats is founded by producer Thomas Werres aka  „The Verticals“. The library offers creative producers and DJs a package full of loops, oneshots and the Drum Pattern Tool.

Im obsessed with the multicultural sound of New York and how it shaped House music in the ’90s. It’s fascinating how the earliest NY House producers like Boyd Jarvis or Blaze built an extention from mid-80s R&B to House. The programming of the drums was unique at the time and contributed to the definition of New York Underground House.

More about The Verticals

The Verticals is a project originated by Thomas Werres and Marcel Soyer back in the early 2000´s. Both adoration for House music led into cooperation of producing tracks, djing and friendship. Both grew up in very musical and artistic families. So it was only a natural progression for them to become interested in production.

The sound of The Verticals is rooted in the early 90´s and mainly influenced by soulful House (New York Garage). Partially breaked out into RAW and hypnotic dj-sets without loosing soul.

Although New York Garage House lost popularity in the 2000´s, The Verticals never strayed from their roots. The long past has even deepen their enthusiasm for the golden era of House music with every day more and more…
