Loopmasters has announced the release of a collection of drum breaks by Carl Craig.

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Planet E label, Carl has collected his favorite original drum breaks from the Loopcloud catalog that ooze character and vibe, and give a respectful nod to classic drum breaks featured in early Planet E recordings.

Each royalty free break has been timestretched for old school flavour and dropped into a hardware sampler processed through its classic analogue filter for added spice, re-programmed and finally run through Carl’s outboard chain to add a final mastering sweep of that juicy Carl Craig sound.

Carl Craig is described as a creative visionary, an electronic music icon, an esteemed Grammy-nominated composer, a world-class DJ and an ambassador for his native Detroit. Yet the common thread that runs through Craig’s broad musical canon and creative projects is a resounding fascination with futurism. The prolific producer has cultivated a unique path as an artist, entrepreneur and civic leader, guided by his tendency toward forward thinking.

Comprising 50 drum loop variations created from 14 different drum breaks, Carl Craig Planet E Breaks is available exclusively from Loopcloud.
