Breakbeats have been the backbone of disco, hip hop, breaks and electronica for decades but finding quality royalty-free breaks has also been a challenge – until now. Kicks & Snares serve up 100 vintage-sounding breaks to kick start your next production. Packed with live drums, and sometimes live instrumentation and vox snips, each break evokes the sound of classic breakbeats of yesteryear – without the sample clearance worries. Speed them up, slow them down, cut, chop and re-arrange for use in hip hop, chillout, electronica and funk/soul/disco tracks. Breaks vary in length between 4-8 bars and all samples are presented as 24-bit Wav files.
