Hot off the press, Bass Boutique is proud to present the 'Trap and Bass Volume 1' sample pack, compiled and curated by Smookie Illson. Formed in the fall of 2012, Smookie Illson is a US-based collaborative music project aimed at injecting the dance music scene with a distinct take on bass music. With a combined 30+ years of experience under their belts, the secretive trio churned out a string of 808-powered bootleg remixes and originals. Using social media to freely distribute the music - and with the backing of popular music blogs like Trap and Bass- they saw their creations find their way into the virtual crates of discerning bass heads worldwide.
In January 2013, their original track 'Make It Clap' was featured in Bro Safari's mix on the 'Diplo & Friends' show on BBC Radio 1Xtra, while their 'Club Action' bootleg remix received support by many of the scene's biggest names, including genre luminary Baauer. With the popularity of EDM Trap music at an all time high, their productions stand out because of a fine-tuned balance between street grit, dancefloor-friendly musicality and choice sampling.
Now, in an exclusive partnership with executive producer Deekline's Bass Boutique and Loopmasters, Smookie Illson dig through their studio archives to offer up in excess of 750 MB of painstakingly selected samples. These include 808 one shots, 808 bass loops, complextro bass loops, synth loops, drum loops, top loops, drum edits and fills, drum kits, FX loops and one shots including sweeps, risers, impact FX, as well as vocal loops and snippets. This set covers a dizzying array of sounds: from orchestral hip hop stabs, to piercing Dutch style synth riffs and ultra low end, trunk-rattling bass hits. Whether you're a fan of more "dirty south" style production outfits like Trapaholics and David Banner to the more EDM Trap-based productions of ?Z or TNGHT, this massive collection is a surefire way to boost your trap production arsenal.
