The long-awaited Sample Pack for Loopmasters has finally arrived!
“We have created 24 construction kits that aim to give you the same producers arsenal as getting a massive stack of old 45s. We wanted to give you the experience of a crate digger who had just acquired a load of rare jazz vinyl but without having to dig for them yourself. Rather than simply relying on recycling our back catalogue, we created some brand-new sounds that integrated modern elements along with the vintage sound of Boom Bap Hip hop.
We aimed to create beats that could be used in their entirety as backing tracks or where you could just isolate one element as use that as the inspiration for a new song. It was wholly created using live instruments, hardware synths and sound modules including a Rhodes Mk2, TR808, Sub37, MPC2000XL and MS2000. All sounds were recorded into Ableton Live and processed to give a warm analogue feel reminiscent of vinyl sampling through tape saturation and vintage FX.”
Over the course of 1.65 GB, you’ll hear the classic sound of Golden Age Hip Hop with a few nods to the contemporary sounds of 808 driven UK Drill + Trap, with keys, synths, drums, percussion, FX, bass, vocals and much more! Inspirations include J Dilla, Madlib, Anderson Paak, Loyle Carner, Tom Misch, Tall Black Guy, Freddie Joachim, Gang Starr, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and Q-Tip. Tempos included are between 85-150bpm, making this collection perfect for any offshoot of hip-hop music.
