Renegade Audio has launched some new sample packs at Loopmasters.

Featuring a collection of live instruments including bass, guitars, keys, percussion, drum parts and fx recorded by Dubmatix, Strictly Roots Reggae Series Vol 1 takes you back to the iconic sound of 70s roots reggae.

The raw and electrifying music emanating from Jamaica that captured our imagination with artists such as Burning Spear, Marley, Abyssinians, Sly & Robbie, Agggrovators, Lee “Scratch” Perry, King Tubby – those tuff driving riddims, hypnotic bass lines, punchy horns, slightly off-kiltered pianos skanks, bubbling organs and chicken scratch guitar skanks all layered with a variety of percussion instruments that culminated to create a unique and defining style and sound.

A collaboration spanning over 40 years and two generations of artists and family utilizing the history of Bill King’s music and 2” tape archives and the production skills of Dubmatix, the Jazz Hip Hop sample pack takes inspiration from some of the greats who helped usher the style into the mainstream consciousness: US3, Guru, Pete Rock, Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Digable Planets, Blue Note Records and so many other artists coming together fusing the best of both worlds.

JazzHipHop brings the vibes of late ‘80s, early ‘90s sound back into the forefront. Jazz & Hip Hop has been synonymous for decades and show no sign of waning as both continue to inspire new artists and experimentation. They stand out for their musical fingerprints – the textured melodic jazz riffs layered on top of hard-hitting beats, rolling acoustic bass lines, lush Rhodes, hints of strings interspersed with abstract piano chording and more.

Strictly Roots Reggae and Jazzy Hip Hop are available for £14.95 GBP and £34.95 GBP, respectively.
