Speaker cones worldwide are gonna shake with fear as Loopmasters very proudly present a monster filthy slab of hard edged loops and samples by the 2 man Drum and Bass Powerhouse that is Blokhe4d.
Keen DnB heads here at Loopmasters HQ, we have been secretly smashing Blokhe4d Drum and Bass Vol 8 for few months now, and at one point we almost decided not to release it purely so we could keep it to ourselves, however the immense sonic frequencies from this pack created such worrying cracks in the walls we quickly realised this pack was too big to be caged.
So all we can say is handle with care, do not feed after midnight, and then hopefully this unique copyright free sample collection will inspire you to create the best Drum and Bass crowd pleasers since the one footed skank!
Blokhe4d is the collaborative project between Michael "Vegas" (formerly of Bad Company UK) alongside US-born Jonas "Uman". The project merges Drum and Bass, Dubstep and Electro with their own brand of Techno, Disco and House in an explosive manner.
They have already secured several releases on Hospital Records, as well as singles on their own Bad Taste imprint and high profile remix work. Currently busy in the studio producing tracks for the forthcoming Hadouken album as well as their own debut artist album which is scheduled to hit the streets in 2011.
Blokhe4d's "Bad Taste Podcast" is only young but has already caused a big stir in the scene showcasing their studio work and music they have signed from some of the scenes most cutting edge producers.
Vegas has more than 10 years experience at the forefront of the Drum and Bass scene as part of Bad Company UK. This collective had several top selling albums, and their first single was also recently voted the Number 1 D&B track of all time by Knowledge Magazine.
Uman has been behind a slew of releases across the full spectrum of electronic music, notably on Viper Recordings and Timeless. Before this he was also one half of live electrronic act, The Passive Resistance, who won the most prestigious Swiss award for new artists in electronic music, M4Music in 2007.
