Rankin Audio has launched its Ultimate Garage & 2Step sample pack.
Rising out of the underground in the mid 90′s, Garage and 2-step has been a major part of the dance music landscape ever since. Characterized by irresistible, hip-shaking swing and always providing the body moving factor be it through grinding on the dance-floor or a nodding head to that latest radio hit, garage music is truly here to stay.
With recent artists such as Disclosure and Mosca taking heavy influence from that 2 step sound and the resurgence of key garage pioneers such as Todd Edwards returning to the fore, it was inevitable that Rankin Audio would retrace it’s roots only to deliver the finest pack of garage grooves this side of the Watford gap. So we called in the inimitable talent of Sheffield via Brighton’s finest purveyor of swung riddims, DJ DeadbeatUK. This rising star delivers only the finest and most authentic garage sounds.
From classic 187 Lockdown and Double99 inspired drum-loops to the organ stabs and vocal chops popularised by the likes of MJ Cole and his contemporaries, this pack really has everything you could need to finish your own 2-step anthem. As usual, the focus is on usability meaning each sound has been carefully processed and is ready to drop straight into your tracks to instantly add that illusive garage vibe!
The sample library is available to purchase for £19.95 GBP.
