Billed as a golden era hip-hop library, Smokers Blend turns out to be somewhat more than that. The drum loops are MPC-style programmed grooves rather than sounding in any sense 'live', the electric and synth basses are rich and funky, and the plethora of melodic elements (guitars, keys, synths, vocals and more) are diverse and fun to explore. The balance between classic and contemporary feels is well-judged, too, and our only complaint is that some of the scratching loops aren't great, and the effects get a bit heavy-handed in places.
