Loopmasters has released the third ‘Diggers’ series sample pack by Sample Diggers, featuring 207 live drum breaks played by Mark Fletcher.

The royalty free Sugar Breaks takes influence from Motown and Stax Records to bring you authentic old skool breakbeats that can be used in your soul and funk compositions or repurposed into Hip Hop style beats.

Mark Fletcher’s CV reads a bit like a modern jazz lover’s record shelf. From Ronnie Scott and Pete King, Hatfield and The North and Gary Husband to the final line-up of Soft Machine to feature Elton Dean and Hugh Hopper, if you know their names Mark Fletcher has probably played with them. Fletcher’s style is deeply aggressive whilst rock solid whether swinging, grooving or dancing round odd metres.

Sugar Breaks contains some of Mark’s greatest soul and funk playing. Everything was played to perfection, with irresistible funk grooves shining through that will grab the ear of any crate digger. Recorded and produced using only the finest in microphones, hardware and outboard gear, you’ll hear fat snares, punchy kicks and intricate ghost notes cutting through the mix and bringing an injection of rhythmic interest into your arrangements.

Sugar Breaks is £14.95 GBP at Loopmasters.
