Curated by renowned percussionist Chris Wells and played by the incredible talent of Ruca Rebordão, this diverse percussion sample pack features masses of traditional African percussion instruments, including rustling waterfall shakers, crisp caixixi patterns, complex conga loops, dikanza scrapes, glistening rattles and vibrant tambourine loops, all punctuated with traditional West African vocal chants.

Evolved Drum & Bass is a new sample pack that fuses Liquid DnB and Tech Drum & Bass.
Featuring a blistering array of Drum & Bass samples, including intricate textured soundscapes, modulating synth lines, snarling yet controlled reeses and bass lines, dark atmospheric effects and super crisp drums and percussion loops, this pack covers all basses of DnB.
Inspired by the likes of Alix Perez and the harder side of Spectrasoul and Calibre, the sounds in this pack traverse the full spectrum of Drum & Bass and will compliment a variety of production styles, whether you produce deep melodic Liquid, bouncy Jump Up or brutal Neuro bangers.
Evolved Drum & Bass costs £34.70 GBP.
