Product information

New from StrangeFlow &, it's Africa Dance Samples, Vol 1: Melodies and Percussion, a collection of loops and one shot samples (in both .wav and .aiff formats) of a variety of percussive and melodic sounds designed for modern african dance music; inspired by the sounds of kwaito, townhouse funk, African house, African EDM, as well as ancient tribal sounds, as well. These are the type of sounds heard in music from all over the continent of Africa, from Ghana to Morocco, the Congo, all the way down to South Africa!

African musical influences, both melodically (and especially rhythmically) have been blowing up in the last few years. Notably, there have been a number of EDM and bass artists from Europe (many of whom are keen to take on a post-dubstep sound) have been digging into this sound, such as L-Vis 1990, and a number of artists on the Night Slugs record label. As well, there are tons and tons of great musicians in Africa (too many to name!) whose music directly inspired the sounds available on this sample pack.

It's got a little something for everyone; one-shots & loops, melody & drums/beats, bass lines, kick drums, modern & ancient tribal sounds. In short, it's a definitive collection for African artists looking for more material to add to their funky dance arsenal, AND artists from outside of Africa seeking to take on some of the international sounds from the cradle of civilization.

This package is 0.6 gigabytes, & contains 265 .WAV (and duplicate 265 .AIFF) audio files.
