Mode Audio says that, fusing vintage, old-skool dirt and character with modern production sheen, Broke Beats - Hip Hop Drum Loops brings home 120 percussive patterns with real grit and attitude. They tell us that the loops are split into drum grooves and fills, so there's more than enough scope to keep your rhythm riding through the night. Drawing upon energetic acoustic sound sources as well as dusty drum machine material, the pack also includes 120 accompanying MIDI files and 80 thumping drum hits (kicks, snares and hats).
A spokesperson told us, "Ranging from 82 to 106BPM, these thunderous drum beats take inspiration from Hip Hop's sampling foundations all the way through to modern live funk patterns and bass-drenched synthesis. The pack juggles a big, bold, brazen sound with a more delicate, acrobatic edge - just right for Hip Hop of the deep, saturated variety. Put some groove and swagger back into your musical stride - put Broke Beats - Hip Hop Drum Loops in the mix!"
