Beatport Sounds are very proud to present this legacy sample collection from one of the early pioneers of Drum and Bass, and co-founder of the famous "Bristol Sound", DJ Krust.
DJ Krust Bristol Drum & Bass was originally released in July 2011 on the Loopmasters label and is one of the first Artist series sample packs in the industry. This insanely slick sample library would set the precedent for the countless Drum and Bass sample collections that would follow it. To preserve its place in history Beatport Sounds have reformatted the original collection and are proud to bring it back to front of the stage, allowing the new generation of samplists to discover it.
Krust is the co-founder of Bristol's Full Cycle crew (with Roni Size, DJ Die and Suv), and he is much noted in the drum and bass underground for his push-the-envelope productions both alone and in collaboration with Size.
After meeting at the 1990 Glastonbury Festival, DJ Krust and Roni Size soon began to produce tracks together, often in collaboration with DJ Die and Suv.
The outfit recorded solo and in tandem for Bryan G and Jumpin' Jack Frost's V Recordings during the early 90's, but then in 1992 formed the Full Cycle label which released several crucial singles and the 1995 label retrospective "Music Box".
DJ Krust continued to record for V and Full Cycle, and with Roni Size did remixes for Goldie and fellow Bristol crew More Rockers. Size's debut album New Forms, featuring considerable production help from Krust hit the music world like a bomb in 1997, leading to Krust's own major-label contract the following year. Coded Language followed his PolyGram debut, True Stories, in 1999. Krust’s 2nd album hidden knowledge released on his own label full cycle in 2006 saw him continue with his trade mark sound.
"Bristol Drum and Bass" is a collection of sounds and samples direct from the studio of DJ Krust, and should inspire new and established DnB producers worldwide and give access for the first time to some of the Tones and sounds which have been responsible for a large chapter of Drum and Bass History.
The pack weighs in at 354MB and includes 382 Drum and bass Samples, including 140 Loops and 242 One Shot Samples.
In detail producers of DnB, Dubstep and Grime should expect to find here 61 Drum Loops, 32 Bass Loops, 21 Percussion Loops, 11 Synth Loops, 6 Pad Loops, 3 Hat Loops, 2 Arp Loops, 2 Fx Loops, 2 Snare Loops, 94 Drum Hits, 62 Fx,12 Bass Multis, 7 Synth Hits, 5 Bass Hits, 5 Percs, 5 Synth Multis and 3 Pad Multis.
