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…
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.

If you like the sound of “Big, Round & Bouncy”, then checkout the Song Slices loop pack “Since We’ve Been Together“. It was recorded at the same time and has exactly the same kit, setup, mic configuration and production style.
It’s also really useful if you’re songwriting and need inspiration, or if you need long loops in dynamic sections that can be moved around.
