Blackout Sample Pack 002 (State of Mind, Optical, Telekinesis, Counterstrike)
With this series of sample packs label owners Black Sun Empire want to make it easier for producers, both at beginner and advanced levels, to come closer to the sound that Blackout is known and respected for. Producing any kind of music is hard enough as it is, but perhaps this kind of drum’n’bass has over the years reached technical levels that are hard to achieve without a little help. Of course sample packs can be seen as an easy way to get a quick result, but we hope it will inspire people to push the envelope even further with the proper tools in hands. For this a proper understanding of what came before is needed and maybe a small glimpse of where things are headed. Up to you to look at both and shape yours and our future.
When it comes to advanced sounds of drum’n’bass look no further than to the man who inspired more producers than any other in the short history of this genre. Together with Ed Rush he gave us countless classic records, most appeared on his own imprint ‘Virus Recordings’. His contribution to this pack is of huge value: not only to sound designers of tomorrow, but also to fans of his music in general. Hearing what new producers will do with this combination of massively familiar sounds and brand new funk is going to be so exciting!
STATE OF MIND
Straight from their studio in New Zealand come the freshest sounds you can instantly recognise as theirs. From rhythmically fast, with sounds that are both hard hitting and precise, to great musically inspiring riffs and loops.
Hailing from South Africa, but now residing in Prague. This producer had to be a part of this international line-up, because of his intense sound. It’s quite a balancing act he pulls off, always being somewhere between the hardest, no-compromise part of drum’n’bass to the funkier, more driving and never loosing eye of the music.
These super talented producers from Slovenia have a certain sound that attracts most labels in this genre. From Eatbrain and Blackout to Viper and Bad Taste. The sounds they created have more punch and energy than any other. These can be used in any modern bass-heavy production and will be great for any other as well.
