Classic Beats & Breaks – Vol. 1 – Hip Hop Drum Loops Pack

Audition ALL of the breakbeats and hip hop drum loops included in this package…

Here’s a breakdown of the tracks…

We had a number of different song references in mind whilst planning and recording Classic Beats & Breaks – Vol.1. No prizes for guessing what they might be…

50 Ways To Beat Your Brother – A jerky beast of a Beat. Inspired by a song performed by Steve Gadd no less. From its basic form, it gets some extra hat accenting treatment then moves over to the ride.

Anita Pearbottom – A very well beaten hip hop drum loop, used and reused on many famous records. Some fairly heavy EQ used here to push it closer to the sound of the original.

Block Rocker – This one just kind of turned up when we were playing around with Anita Pearbottom. It’s produced in a similar way – big and bouncy.

Concrete Poolyard – PROPER wonky. You think this sounds awkward. Try playing it! With that huge gap between kick and snare leaving the hats hanging in mid air. A bass player’s dream. Could play late? early?! It gets the ride treatment then back to the hats for some snare ghosting.

Crack Up – We couldn’t resist it, what a crazy little drum pattern! And as for that naughty hat fill…

Get A Grip – Another awkward chap, somewhere between straight and swung. We thought we’d find out how it sounded played straight as well.

Got To Be Real – A CLASSIC groove. It heads over to the ride for some funky snare action, then an accented ride pattern.

Maniac – This really is a SLAMMER. Inspired by no single particular track, it just felt great to play. Doesn’t sound too shabby either.

The Formats

As well as the WAV stereo mixes and 24bit multi-tracks, we also produced the breakbeats and hip hop drum loops in the REX, Apple Loops, and Stylus RMX formats.

Purdie Shuffle Loops

These files are variable tempo versions of the stereo mixes. They have been carefully sliced and tested to stretch to the tempo of your project. These 3 formats cover just about any software or workstation you may be using.

    Finally I have broken free from the Logic Loops library, having downloaded the Classics Beats & Breaks pack. A simple drag and drop, an automatic shift in tempo to match my project and my track sounds like a great kit, drummer and engineer have visited for the day. First class!
