Soul Rush Records has launched Found Sound Percussion Hits, a collection of organic, real world recordings which aim to inject a feeling of life and soul into any production.
Recorded in East Berlin with a high end field recorder and a vast array of different drum sticks and everyday objects. Hammers, whisks, keys, broken bottles, cardboard boxes, broken kick drum skins and a dog! Everything we could think of to make warm, exciting percussive noises were used and the sounds collected from industrial and urban spaces, building sites, cafes, restaurants, at train stations, inside trains, in bars and on the city’s streets.
If you’re looking for warmth in your productions then these sounds are perfect for building your own drum racks with and adding a whole new sonic pallet to your work.
We have thrown in 40 bonus loops ranging from 103bpm to 174bpm which are ready to be dropped straight into the mix to give your tracks that extra depth that only a field recording can. They are ready to use now for your tracks or you can use them as inspirations for creating your own warm and organic beat patterns.
The sample pack is available from Loopmasters for £14.95 GBP.

Detunized has announced the release of Abandoned Shelters – The Danish Bunker Coast, a new sample library for Ableton Live and Broadcast Wav.
Danish Bunker Coast library features mysterious and eerie sounds recorded in and around WW2 bunker relicts along the Danish West Coast.
The gathered ambiences form a comprehensive resource of steady winds, heavy gusts, rustling undergrowths as well as single waves and strong surfs that constantly crash into these otherworldly areas of concrete remains.
A big part of the library was recorded inside the bunkers where the strong nature elements of wind and water are transformed into heavily comb filtered textures and dark atmospheres.
Abandoned Shelters features
- BWAV Universal (full version) $69 USD: 8 sceneries, 71 takes, 2 to 3+ minutes each, 24Bit/96kHz, embedded metadata, 5.8 GB.

Capsun ProAudio has launched Textures – Dust, Dirt & Crackle Vol. 1, a sample pack featuring a collection of original loops and single sounds, purpose built, designed and found to inspire emotive production and evoke memories of distant locations and forgotten nights.
Musical inspiration construction sets should arouse the senses and broken beat loops, sampling classic drum machines and run through warm vintage gear can spread dust and dirt through your production in just the right amount. Rhythmic crackle beds can be added with a stunning selection of record loops from every source conceivable. Warm things up with rusty cassette noise loops or cool it down with tempo synced mechanical and twisted machine noise.
Deep and evolving sound beds we’ve called Wash will provoke flashes of 80s sci-fi whilst holding one foot firmly in the production styles of Future Beats, Textured Garage & House and Classic Hip-Hop. 70 all new Drum One Shots are included, ranging from dusty old machines, the buzz of inspired mistakes and the deep thud of over-saturation.
Influence has been drawn from experimental electronic artists such as Burial, Flying Lotus, Clams Casino, Four Tet, Cyril Hahn, Ta-Ku, Actress, Zomby and also pioneering musicians and composers such as Brian Eno, Trent Reznor, Phil Spector and John Carpenter. This makes this expansive collection ideal for downtempo electronica, turned down rap, chill trap, classic hip-hop, future garage, chillwave, ambient house and techno, atmospheric DnB and future beats.
The sample pack is available for purchase for £19.95 GBP.

Baauer has released a free sample pack as part of his “Searching for Sound” documentary.
Music has existed for thousands of years. The variety of sounds, instruments and music cultures around the world is staggering in it’s diversity, yet often, we tend to stick to what we know. There’s something to be said for shaking off your habits and looking beyond the familiar; the world is teeming with sounds that will change your perspective and expand your creative horizons.
It’s this sort of thinking that spurred Baauer to embark on a global adventure in search of fresh sounds to fuel his new album. Looking for a new direction in the wake of the “Harlem Shake” phenomenon, Harry Rodrigues traveled with production partner Nick Hook from the deserts beyond Dubai to the volcanoes of Japan, recording quirky sounds and ancient musical traditions to bend into raw materials to use in the studio. Lucky for us they’ve handed over the full set of samples, giving you the chance to add a new edge to your musical palette and maybe even broaden your vision of sound itself.
The sample pack is a free download from Ableton.
