Martin Flex, back with some of the freshest upfront Bass & Breaks sounds of the moment.
Lets face it music styles change given a period of time sometimes for the better sometimes for the worst. The emerging sound in the breaks scene of late is the 808 bass. The dance music scene has become awash with tracks using these sounds and styles so why not create a sample pack that uses these influenced sounds.
The Free Breaks Blog has done just that entitled “808’s Bass & Breaks” this sample pack gives a rich structure for this new evolving sound. They have had some great support and feedback from many top producers and artists including MAFIA KISS, ATOMIC HOOLIGAN, MARTIN FLEX / PURE SX, SE7EN DEADLY BREAKS, MOOQEE, SKEEWIFF and more.
Weighing in at just under half a gigabyte, this pack is a cutting edge collection of royalty free beats and breaks which includes over 500 ready to use samples. Consisting of 20 Booming Bassline Loops, 80 Bone Shaking Breaks Loops, 20 Expertly Crafted Music Loops, 20 On Point Pad Loops, 20 Technically Twisted Vox Loops and a vast collection of one shot sounds and hits.
You will find 40 Sonically Superior 808 Bass hits, 180 Individual Drum and Percussion Samples, 20 FX one shots, 40 Lead Sounds, and 40 of the finest Pad hits.
All samples are provided in the industry standard 24bit 44.1KHz WAV format which is compatible with all DAW’s and DJ software including Ableton, Cubase, Logic and Reason etc and are all bpm labelled and key labelled where necessary.
A similar sized pack from other well known sample boutiques will look to cost you around £20 – £30 but we here at Free Breaks Blog are providing this sample pack at an insanely good value for money price of £10.00.

This is Father Funk’s set from the festival, top, fresh Ghetto Funk tunes with wicked party vibes.
This relatively hard to find mix was given away for free with the February issue of Mixmag in 2001. Entitled “Mixmag Presents Elastic Breaks – The Sound Of Breakbeat mixed by the Plump Djs” it was one sort after mix at the time and one that was on high rotation in my CD player. Over the next few weeks i’ll be digging into my archives to give you some Retro Breaks Mix Classics from artists that we all know from back in the day and many that have come and gone onto bigger and better things.
