The sounds of 70s AfroFunk (Fela Kuti, Ebo Taylor, The Funkees and more) is the original sound and style that inspired this pack. It’s within the inspiration provided from these great musicians and productions that we’ve crafted sounds and instrumentation that evoke the spirit of this funky, raw groove sounds.
To the lofi, slightly pitchy tones of the guitars, horns and keys, not unlike some of the classic sounds heard in 70s roots reggae from Jamaica to it’s this rawness and energy that are the backbone and driving force of Afro-Funk.
With a tempo range of 100-134BPM - Afro Funk (Selector Series Vol 4) aims to target the vintage sounds of the 70s alongside a contemporary feel and groove. As always there’s the esthetic of the Dubmatix sound - echos, reverbs, phasers, Lofi and more - incorporated into the loops and sounds to provide a variety of textures and sounds for almost any genre of music.
There are funk and hip-hop, afro, Latin drums, tons of percussion - from congas, bongos, shakers, tambourines, and more to in your face horns mixed with treated processing of reverb and echo to expand the possibilities.
Crafted by Dubmatix, countless hours were spent creating a sonic palette of loops going through several layers of processing and FX to achieve something sonically unique and interesting that can be used in a wide variety of musical genres. Many of the loops include multiple variations and FX such as LoFi, Distorted, Reverb and Echo providing sonic textures to layer into almost any genre and production.
Performed by Dubmatix, live instruments include bass, guitars, keys, percussion, drum parts, synths and fx alongside handcrafted programmed beats and sounds.
