Loopmasters has introduced Monster Sounds’ latest sample pack, featuring a collection of head-nodding beats, floor-shaking basslines and evocative music loops.
The royalty free Intelligent Jungle Dub Plates brings the seminal sonic styling of late ’90s drum and bass to your contemporary breakbeat projects.
Inspired by the pioneering likes of Bukem, Fabio, Photek and Goldie, and seminal imprints such as Moving Shadow, Metalheadz and Desert Storm, Intelligent Jungle Dub Plates gets things rolling with 54 tightly edited drum and top loops that perfectly capture the pace and energy of the era. Bolstering that rhythmic foundation are 30 basses, spanning the junglist gamut, from bouncing 808s and seismic subs, to rumbling reeses and searing hoovers.
In the melodic department, 62 keyboard and synth loops present a diverse array of cerebral musical tools, many of them sourced from the E-mu Vintage Keys module – a ubiquitous and important player in early DnB. Here, you’ll find a wealth of chord-sampled sequences, epic pads, dark plucks, menacing ambiences and more, all with that ear-pleasing patina of distortion that only vintage digital hardware can imbue.
Add to that lot a tidy selection of reverb-drenched bells and arps, tension-building risers and impactful FX, and you have an expansive and authentic retro-flavoured resource for DnB producers of all denominations. Nostalgic and original in equal measure, Intelligent Jungle Dub Plates is simply unmissable.
Priced £24.95 GBP, the sample pack is available to purchase at the Loopmasters store.
