Review: Loopmasters Hip Hop Instrumentals 2

Loopmasters Hip Hop Instrumentals 2

London based record producer and recording artist Chemo is back with the second volume of Hip Hop Instrumentals, a collection of 10 construction kits.

Each construction kit has everything you need to build inspirational Hip Hop productions including stems of each drum part, Bass Loop, Hook and Atmosphere along with its own separate drum kit for those who want to roll their own breaks.

With tempos varying between 70-114 BPM this dynamic pack is also perfect for Chill Out, Urban, Triphop, Downtempo and all worldwide hip hop genres.

The collection offers 109 loops and 126 single shot sounds, neatly organized in construction kit folders and labeled with bpm and key info where applicable.

Loops include complete drum beats and breaks, melodic instrument loops, atmospheric background sounds, and more. The single shot sounds feature the individual drum sounds of the construction kits so you can create variations or new parts. A collection of bonus drum loops and kit samples is also included.

Additionally, 27 sampler patches for the drum kits, bonus kits and atmos are available in popular formats, including 14 kits for Native Instruments Maschine.

Here’s what Chemo has to say:

“With this pack, I have made a conscious effort to concentrate on the drum kits and organic atmospheres and textures. I often find that the atmospheric sounds lying behind the main elements in a song can really give a dynamic texture upon which to base the rest of the composition. You will hear quite a variety of subtle vinyl crackle layers, ambient nature recordings, distant trains and even a sound layer recorded at a supermarket checkout”

So what do I think?

Product: Hip Hop Instrumentals 2 by Loopmasters
Format: 24bit WAV/REX, sampler patches
Price: £24.95 GBP
Like: Authentic sound, fantastic vibe, drum kit single shots
Don’t like: –
Verdict: 9/10

Chemo lays down some amazing vibes in this second volume of Hip Hop Instrumentals. The construction kits have a mellow feel, and are incredibly musical and well thought out. The drums and melodic elements of the kits are perfectly matched.

And then you have the steam train whistle, chirping of birds, water bubbling, vinyl crackles, random background noises, etc… The atmospheric sounds Chemo speaks about really set the tone, and make the kits truly original.

All kits have a distinct flavor, and the pack as a whole offers a consistent, high quality sound. Check it out!
