Sample Diggers has released its new royalty free collection These Are the Breaks, featuring breakbeats with an old skool vibe, played by The Jungle Drummer and recorded and processed with an emphasis on recreating the vintage sounds of the classic funk breaks with a mixture of modern and retro technology.

The Jungle Drummer is a dominant figure on the club and festival circuit all over the world, with live performances and DJ shows encompassing a variety of styles and genres. He has performed with award-winning Drum and Bass act London Elektricity and has worked and performed with other artists such as Rodney P and Killa Kela, Coldcut, Radiohead producer Nigel Goldrich, Raw Hill Cru, DJ Fresh, Shy FX, A Guy Called Gerald, DJ FU, DJ Craze and The Scratch Perverts to name but a few.

These Are The Breaks contains some of The Jungle Drummer’s finest playing, displaying the spirit of breakbeats through the ages. You’ll hear slow and staggered breaks that can be used out of the box in golden era style hip hop beats, right up to the uptempo sounds that channel the energy of classic James Brown.
