Loopmasters releases Soulful Breaks by Lack of Afro

Loopmasters has launched Soulful Breaks, a sample library by Lack of Afro featuring a royalty free collection of live drum breaks dripping with all the vintage soul and character normally associated with classic vinyl recordings.

Lack of Afro Soulful Breaks

Since the release of “Analogue Soul” by Lack of Afro at Loopmasters we have been bombarded with praise for the drum loops in his collection and so at your request we sent Adam Gibbons back to the studio to devise a fiendishly funky break collection to literally beat all break collections.

This wonderful collection features 62 solid soul drum grooves suitable for producers looking for authentic classic sounding breaks for their Broken Beat, Hip Hop, Drum and Bass, Downtempo, Breaks, Disco and Soul Funk productions.

“I’ve tried to make the pack as comprehensive as possible & have used the exact same process I use to get the LOA drum sound. In all there are 62 different beats, all with added percussion & spread over 13 different tempos ranging from 80-140bpm. Everything was recorded to tape, and then transferred into Logic for editing. I also wanted to allow producers the maximum flexibility so each beat has variations and combinations designed to be mixed & matched according to taste.“

The sample pack is available for purchase for £29.95 GBP.
