Soul Drum Loops

The “Big, Round & Bouncy”soul drum loops pack is one of three Beat Shed products using a drum sound inspired by the great producer Willie Mitchell.

His approach to drum recording is one much discussed in drummer/engineer circles. Some talk about the punchy kick, the muffled toms, or the mic placement that takes in the whole kit as a single instrument. But then there’s the snare sound. Oh THAT snare sound…

The Loops

Whilst recording “Since We’ve Been Together“, we started messing around with other grooves and ideas for a soul drum loops pack.

Starting at 85bpm, we improvised some quite laid back grooves, on hi-hats then ride, in that 70’s soul style. Some 6/8 grooves also came to mind so we put those down as well.

Moving up to 102bpm things got a bit funkier with more of a breakbeat feel. There are a few soul drum loops in here that could be used for rock too, and one or two 4-to-the-floor grooves too.

In the audio player above you can hear compilations of a few loops at each tempo, then scroll down to hear each and every loop (and a few fills too!) in the “Big, Round & Bouncy” loop pack.
