Young Punx Sample library – “Vintage Breaks”

Hal Ritson of The Young Punx has hooked up with long time Punx session drummer Alex Reeves to create this stunning new sample library of authentic vintage breakbeats (which will be used heavily on new material by TYP!). Producers – get on these hot beats right now! 🙂


Here’s the official blurb:

Sample Magic unleashes studio gold in the first in its new 101Studio series – featuring 101 vintage breaks recorded with a superlative level of old-school authenticity never before heard in a sample collection.

Sample replay guru and The Young Punx frontman Hal Ritson, and Dizzee Rascal’s live drummer Alex Reeves are the creative forces behind this collection.

If you’re looking for fine, full-fat and copyright-free breaks for hip hop, DnB, breakbeat, chillout, house – even dubstep – then look no further.

Unrivalled attention to detail has been paid to every aspect of drum hardware, vintage mics, micing techniques, pre-amps, compression, mixing techniques – even down to drumstick grip – to stunningly recreate the sound of 60s and 70s breakbeats with incredible groove and atmosphere.

In Vintage Breaks you get fresh re-interpretations of the most-sampled drum breaks in music history – such as the iconic Amen, Apache and Think grooves – but without the licensing nightmares associated with the originals.

But there are also many many brand new beats and grooves, opening up a whole new world of fresh sounds with an incredible vintage sound.

Hours of research have gone into each break well before the drummer even hits the kick; with all manner of long-lost audiophile knowledge pulled from the vaults and vintage mics dusted off to ensure every vintage nuance of the classic collectable kits is captured in each stunning break.

Many of have tried to imitate the masters.

None have succeeded.

Until now!

All files are tempo-labeled (ranging from 65 to 140bpm) for maximum ease of use. Loops are offered in a range of formats – including ready-sliced Rexes for to be mashed and re-arranged for a near-infinite number of re-worked beats.
