This impressive new pack from Loopmasters takes is cues from artists such as Ivy Lab, Alix Perez, Eprom and Sam Binga and includes 1.75GB of dark and moody loops and hits. There’s inventive sound design, programming and processing throughout with some longer, layered and evolving loops that make good use of effects, modulation and stereo spread.

The basses are huge, the synths and pads haunting and the drums are satisfyingly wonky and original, although we find some of the reverb use to be a little intrusive. All the loops are around 85bpm, so could work for multiple genres such as LA beats and other hip-hop styles. On top of this, there are also 240 one-shots with 112 accompanying sampler patches. These include some evocative synths and pads, some fat-sounding basses, a large collection of effects and some characterful and unique processed drum hits.
