Loopmasters has launched the Skins Hand Percussion Pack, a sample pack featuring over 650MB of high-end percussion from the formidably talented NYC based rhythm master Bashiri Johnson.

Loopmasters Bashiri Johnson Skins

SKINS is the brainchild of Bashiri Johnson, Percussionist extraordinaire, who has contributed to a myriad of hit records, films, TV, games and more – with artists including Beyonce, Paul Simon, Barbara Streisand, Michal Jackson, Miles Davis, Mary J Blige, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, Queen, Herbie Hancock and so many more! Bashiri has an almost undefinable sense of flow and groove, and an innate desire for absolute excellence.

A word from Bashiri Johnson: “I have been blessed with the opportunity from Loopmasters to share what I love to share, what I love to do, and what I am: Rhythm. The making of SKINS had everything to do with impact, feel, and physical contact. I hope you will experience SKINS as a tool and a means to create great music. SKINS is intended to be a rhythmic journey, the evolving and unfolding was what made creating SKINS so rewarding for me. I hope this journey will be the same for you”.
