Funky Drum Loops – Old Skool Funk

Old Skool Funky Drum Loops

‘Old Skool Funk’ takes you back to the days of James Brown, The Isley Brothers, Curtis Mayfield and Parliament-Funkadelic to name just a few. Those were the days when you could count on a world class drummer laying down  some funky drum loops. They were so good, they spawned generations of sampled break beats and drum fills that gave birth to the entire Hip Hop genre.

Live and Organic, Funky Drum Loops

With ‘Old Skool Funk’ we revisit that sound by capturing the essence of what made those drum breaks so fine.

First we start with some awesome funk and soul drummers who were raised on the hits of the 1970’s. Next we put together a wild collection of vintage drum kits that deliver that raw, funk tone that is so characteristic of the genre. Finally, we spend days, weeks and months recording all of this inspirational funk gold and then hunker down for a marathon mixing and editing session.

The result is ‘Old Skool Funk’ . 145 retro styled funky drum loops offering you the ultimate beats, breaks and fills to add 100% pure funk to your tracks.

We used vintage tube microphones, tube compressors and lo-fi production techniques. Add to that the pristine performances from some of the most talented funk drummers that Great Britain has to offer, and you wont be disappointed with this sample pack.

We used two different live rooms during the sessions to give these loops a mixture of ambient and dry room sounds. Tempos range from 80 bpm to 120 bpm.
