Vintage Lab Beats Vol 1 by Loops De La Crème (produced by Julien Tauban) is a sample collection packed with a diverse set of lo-fi (but not limited to) style rhythmic loops & grooves, single shot drum samples and vinyl cuts.
In total, there’s:
- 110 loops (beats & grooves)
- 146 single shots (drum hits)
- 7 vinyl noise samples.
All the samples are in .WAV format.
The loops consists of intelligently sequenced beats treated with a distinctive set of effect processing making a nice selection of grooves which you can use as rhythmic beds for various musical styles such as hip hop, jazz, soul, breakbeat, drum and bass, downtempo, glitchy stuff, etc. You’ll find live percussion loops, vintage drum machine beats, fresh and unique grooves and compelling sounds. Wide range of BPM, styles, sound sources and arrangement are covered. Production quality is professional: crispy, balanced and pleasant to ears which makes them easy to mix to an existing audio project or as a solid foundation for completely new projects.
The single drum hits are very usable and first class as well. There’s kicks, snares, claps, glitch sounds and stacked snares/claps which I personally digged a lot as they sound so very tight! Included is a nice set of vinyl cut drum hits for creating a beats with that certain type of ‘vinyl touch’. I would say that the single hit drum samples are aimed (or suits very well at least) for hip hop, breakbeat or glitchy type of beat sequences, but of course, you can use them as you wish!
Also, if you prefer your beats to have that authentic vinyl crackle & noise, there’s a handful of vinyl noise samples to use and mix with your audio – for even more added vintage sensation.
All in all, the Vintage Lab Beats Vol 1 is a very nice and usable collection of samples for any hip hop, rap, breakbeat or glitch producer. I am personally going to use these in some of my up and coming audio projects for sure!
