Loopmasters has launched a new sample pack with a complete set of sounds ideal for sculpting tracks that prove both propulsive but soothing.

A hyper-specific but flexible collection, Chilled 2 Step focuses on the mellow edge of a sound made huge by pioneers such as Wookie, Zed Bias and later adapted by artists as diverse as Bicep and The Weekend.

Underscored by the typically skittish and shuffled rhythms that define 2 Step’s offbeat groove, the rumbling sub-bass provides the perfect canvas on which to build powerful and emotive compositions, as compelling in the rave as at the afterparty. Featuring hits, midi synth patches and loops for versatility, Chilled 2 Step runs a full spectrum of sounds from phased tambourines to blossoming arps, wistful bass guitars and juicy synth chords.

Featuring ready-made grooves between 130BPM and 136BPM, each sound in Chilled 2 Step is delivered entirely royalty-free and in industry-quality 44,1Khz ratio. Smooth, groovy and hypnotic the contents of this pack are also easily-adaptable to UKG, dubstep, deep techno and chillout sounds.

The sample pack is priced £29.95 GBP, with parts also sold separately from £5.95 GBP.
