Conscious Hip Hop contains over 650MB of content that reflects Trax’s deep interest in this style of hip-hop. With warm keys and sax, bass, guitar and trumpet parts that sound authentic, as if you were digging, deep in the crates. Naturally the drums + Percussion are on point and hugely foundational, with a selection of straighter breaks and some with that classic head nodding swing.
About the pack, DJ Trax has said:
Hip Hop has always been my first love. Back in 84, I was part of a BBoy called The Electro Breakers. As well as breaking, I was also influenced by Scratch DJ`s like Cash Money, Jazzy Jeff + DJ Cheese. I wanted to learn every scratch they could do and practiced for hours.
I have been collecting records since I was 11 and have large Hip Hop and Funk collection. I originally started out as a drummer and so learning about where the breaks came from always interested me. Although I love lots of different styles of Hip Hop, I have always been drawn to the deeper side with conscious lyrics.
