This new Loopmasters pack combines the bass and rhythms of dub and dubstep with the more aggressive and distorted sounds of the industrial genre. Bass influences come courtesy of artists such as Scorn and JK Fresh, with the more experimental elements inspired by Portishead and Lee Perry. It’s quite modest in size, with 100 loops, 106 one-shots and 67 sampler patches that cover deep and rich-sounding basses, and saturated drums with cavernous reverb, as well as organ, synth, guitar stabs. It’s a moody and cinematic collection that might prove useful for film cues. Everything here is heavily processed to give it a raw, dark and characterful sound. But the distortion is implemented in a heavy-handed manner in places.
