Native Instruments has released Global Shake, a new Expansion celebrating the vitality and excitement of contemporary African music.

Created by Zoss Audio in collaboration with with London-based producers Nosa Apollo and Major Notes, Global Shake provides a palette of sounds suitable for any style. Drums and tuned percussion come in kits for Battery and Maschine, while new presets for Massive, Monark, and Reaktor Prism give producers the bright leads and thick basses of African club music. Guitars, percussion, and original vocals were performed and recorded in Ghana, Cape Verde, and South Africa exclusively for the Expansion and come as samples and loops for use in any DAW.

Global Shake joins a range of over 50 Expansions. Go to for more info.

Global Shake is available now exclusively at the NI Online Shop for $49. A compact version of Global Shake is also available as an $0.99  iMaschine 2 Expansion, for sketches on the go.
