Big Fish Audio has released two new sound libraries:
Hip Hop Exotica
Producer Josquin des Pres has used his west coast recording experience and southern French origins to create a unique blend of hip hop and world music. This one-of-a-kind, cross-cultural mix represents a fusion of thumpin’ hip hop beats blended with live-recorded ethnic loops. World beat and hip hop collide with Asian, Indian, Arabic, Latin American, Spanish and African influences
- 3.61 GB of content on a single DVD-rom (1.9 GB of WAV content)
- 2,342 files (966 WAV files 966 Apple Loops 410 REX files)
There are 55 construction kits with tempos ranging from 68 to 104 BPM. All of the construction kits contain a full mix and each element broken down into individual loops Each construction kit folder contains two subfolders. One folder called hits contain the drum hits used in that kit. The subfolder is called “drum tracks”. “Drum Tracks” are the individual element of the drums in loop form so you can remix and/or mix and match drum parts easily.
In the 1970’s, funk was the soundtrack to the African-American experience. From the jazz-inflected funk of Roy Ayers and Lonnie Liston Smith, to the pop of Stevie Wonder, and the abstract freakouts of Eddie Harris and the iconic cartoon funk of Parliament/Funkadelic, this was the thread that held everything together. It was the death of bebop and the seeds of disco and hip hop. It challenged rock as king of the heap, and ultimately got a nation to shake its booty.
Producer Rich Mendelson has distilled funk down to its essence: guitar, bass, drums and piano. With Funk Quartet you can create entire funk-inflected tracks with the material’s many variations, or just use individual loops to add that little head-noddin’ extra.
- 2.8 GB on a single DVD-ROM (1.38 GB of 24 bit WAV content)
- 1,082 guitar, piano, bass, and drum loops (364 WAV Loops)
