These tracks deliver the sound and feel that usually only crate digging through old breaks can provide – authentic, original, unrefined beats and basslines without the copyright anxiety and demanding editing!

Each pattern was played live for approx. 3 minutes, and there are countless variations, fills, licks, charming goofs, and moments of glistening badass-ness ready to be turned into your next dancefloor masterpiece… We have presented each pattern in an unedited format, to encourage as much creative interpretation of the performances as possible!

Perfect for bedroom producers, songwriters, old school hip hop heads and anyone who prefers their drums dirty with a human “off the grid” feel, especially those who are allergic to the stiff and sterile sounds provided by most modern DAW drum programming options.

All tracks were recorded to a click, to allow easy integration with your sessions.. but performed as though they weren’t!
Processed tastefully with equipment by Neve, SSL, Pultec, Empirical Labs, Electrodyne, Studer and Thermionic Culture.
