This new artist pack from Loopmasters comes courtesy of heavyweight house producer Gawp, which has released music on Dirtybird, Toolroom, Elrow and more. It features 160 loops that cover everything from big and bouncy basslines to chunky drum and percussion loops, wonky synth leads and chords, and Rasta-style vocal phrases and chops.

There are a bunch of decent bass, drums, effects, synths and vocal one-shots with accompanying sampler patches too, as well as 18 bassline MIDI files. The production is solid throughout, with adept use of heavy processing to make the loops sound big and round, plus interesting pattern programming and fine use of reverb. If you’re looking for bold and upfront house sounds but with a raw and original edge, this pack is well worth your time.
