Sample Diggers has launched its latest sample pack Big Screen Hip-Hop, an expansive collection of gorgeous soundtrack-inspired Hip Hop workouts that would sound equally at home emitting from a turntable or movie theatre.

The sounds in this pack were inspired by artists like Bonobo, RJD2, DJ Krush, Poldoore, The Herbaliser and labels like Ninja Tune and Mo’Wax.

The objective of this pack is to provide laid-back samples tinged with hip-hop and jazz in order to produce chilled out, cinematographic tracks. The instrumentation was geared towards bringing an organic feel to the collection.

Over the course of 661 MB, Big Screen Hip-Hop brings you a whole host of timbres in loop and one-shot form. Deep, soothing basslines and expertly crafted breakbeats will ensure your rhythm section is moving nicely, whilst dreamy mallets, natural Rhodes, emotional pianos, capacious strings, rumbling horns and spacy synths provide you with ample inspiration to design your sonic worlds. A wide array of epic SFX shots and sustained, sampler-ready instrument hits will help complete your cinematic palette.

Big Screen Hip-Hop includes:

  • 26 full drum loops, 26 top drum loops, 25 synth bass loops, 19 synth loops, 10 percussion loops, 8 keys loops, 6 mallet loops, 5 guitar loops, 3 electric bass loops, 3 arp loops, 3 string loops, 2 double bass loops, 2 pad loops.
  • 51 drum hits, 41 instrument hits, 30 drum kit hits, 29 bass hits, 10 fx.
  • 79 soft sampler patches for NNXT, EXS24, Kontakt, Halion and SFZ.

The sample pack is available for £24.95 GBP from Loopmasters.

Also released recently is Jazz Hop Instrumentals, an ultra-laidback collection of head nodding beats and arrangements that provide a warmth that will emanate from the core of your productions.

The pack includes over 500MB of content primed for producers with a penchant for melodic exploits.

Fans of J Dilla, Madlib, MF DOOM and Q-Tip’s production will find plenty of relaxed inspiration within, in a whole host of keys and tempos. Deep, resonant double bass riffs pair magically with the swung out and grooving drum loops – providing you with a rhythm section that will stand up on its own, but also support any MCs you want to work with.

Music loops within are packed into instantly harmonious song kits, designed to work together off the bat. Souful pianos, rich organs, sweet synths, gorgeous Rhodes, thick guitars and much more are all included, ready for you to chop, slice, process or simply use clean in your beats! What’s more, you’ll find an array of one-shots within, including trumpets, Rhodes, saxophones, kicks, claps, rims, shakers, trombones and more, perfect for writing your own sections with.

Jazz Hop Instrumentals is £19.95 GBP.
