BASEMENT FREAKS PRESENTS FUNK LEGENDS (Live Funk Loop Pack)

funk-legends-1000x1000

 

We here at the blog have probably shared more than our fair share of Basement Freaks posts over the last couple of years and the main reason we keep coming back again and again, wether it’s for the free tunes, bootlegs or mixtapes, would have to be the quality, quality in production techniques, attention to detail and of course that good ol’ fashion funk. This quality has definitely transferred to the live funk loop sample pack the B.Freaks just released thru Blackoctopus Sounds, with the aptly named Funk Legends not just living up to expectations but taking it to the next level entirely. This collection packs a serious punch with live and synth bass, guitar, brass, flute, clavinets, piano and drum loops galore and with tempos ranging from 90bpm to 119bpm there is plenty to get excited about. With these funky fresh royalty free sounds at your fingertips, inspiration will most definitely soon follow.

2014 was also a stellar year as far as funky free music from the Freaks with a mammoth number of bootlegs, remixes and originals as well as a large number of Boombastice Jam label releases all getting the free download treatment and all dripping with that same quality i keep writing about. Don’t just take my word for it though, check out the tracks below and i’m guessing soon after you will be on the download!

Virtual Riot – Prime Loops Sample PAck

Virtual_Riot

When I’m browsing through a sample library the first time, they’re mostly organised through alphabetical order – so I start with Bass. And my god, does this pack have BASS.

With it’s intentions placed firmly in the 140 bpm region, Virtual Riot contains an uncompromising set of expertly labelled, clear and weighty samples. It plays to it’s strengths, with folders filled with soaring leads and heavy basslines that would be extremely easy to slot into your next project. The Bass Hits and Loops are extremely well done, and anyone working in the space of dubstep or any other genre that relies on complextro-esque chopping and changing of basslines will be in for a treat.

Along with some awesome Synth Hits, Loops, FX and Drums, this is one of the better sample packs I’ve had the pleasure of going through. While it is clearly geared towards the heavier styles of electronic music, this pack will deliver to the people looking for that sound in spades.

City Sample Pack (Bear Fresh)

Bear Fresh

 

Lending itself to the future bass and garage styles that are so hot today, City Samples is packed to the brim with go-to sample material. The included drums are definitely quality over quantity and you can tell each sample was chosen for it’s particular range rather than bombarding you with a bunch of shitty ones that you’ll never use. Drum loops are separated into each element too, giving you a lot more combinations to work with if you’re just in need of a top loop in your current tune to fill it out.

There’s some interesting Massive Presets to be had, some beautiful and haunting music loops that leave you wanting more along with the included MIDI, Vocals and FX. With all that said, the drums are the star of the show here. Recommended if you’re looking to update your drum sample collection to the new hotness or get some inspiration if you want to try your hand at a new style.

Rankin Audio – Sample Packs

Rankin Audio

Written by guest reviewer Juxtapose, one half of The Beatslappaz.

Sometimes it’s worth looking for sample packs that aren’t labelled “Breaks” to get your fix. Rankin Audio, the brainchild of High Rankin has been delivering top notch sample packs covering all the other key electronic music genres. They have also just recently launched a monthly subscription service to deliver unique samples every month for a fee. Though not labeled as breaks, there’s definitely something here for the intrepid producer …

Dubstep, Trap and DNB Subscription – £9.95 per month

It’s no secret that as both the Beatslappaz and Juxtapose I’ve always leaned heavily on Rankin Audio to provide clean, heavy drum samples that cut through a complicated mix. The drum samples that come with the dubstep and trap packs always deliver and the ones here are likewise unmissable.

The loops range between 140bpm and 174bpm, so your milage will vary with the included music loops when applying them to a breakbeat tempo. With that said, every loop can be used for inspiration, including grabbing chord progressions (the key is labelled on each sample) or using the provided bass and synth Hits to recreate them at the needed speed. The 10 included Massive presets are also excellent.

I think any breaks producer will find a lot of use with the single hits and Massive presets in this pack, which is worth the price of admission alone. Recommended.

House and Garage Subscription – £9.95 per month

Fans of the Stanton Warriors latest sounds rejoice – this is the pack for you. Filled with melodic, beautiful stabs and loops combined with bouncy bass patterns, any one of the sounds included could catapult you into writing your next bass music hit.

Once again the samples are provided as a mix of loops and hits but with the tempo set at 124bpm, just about every loop could be put straight into a breaks project as is or cut up with minimal fuss. Unfortunately there are no Massive presets included in this pack, but the bass and synth can of course be put into any sampler.

The drums are geared more towards the house sound, so you’ll find the hits here to be a bit more subtle than the previous pack – however the strength is in the percussive grooves which will add some great rhythm to your tunes.

I’m a big fan of this sound growing in breaks so this pack is highly recommended.

Complete Subscription (Both packs) – £15.95 per month

As a producer, I found things from both packs that will help with my work – uncompromising drums in the Trap pack and brilliant forward-thinking bass patterns and synth samples in the House pack. For just £15.95 you won’t be disappointed, and who knows? Maybe they’ll inspire you to explore some of the other genres that are on offer…

These particular packs may not be available at the time of reading, but trust us when we say you will definitely find something suitable for your audio needs by signing up to the Rankin Audio subscription service.
