Classic Funky Breaks

(7 customer reviews)



Funk and disco songs of the 70s & 80s often had a drum solo in the middle. These sections of the songs, known as the “break”, was highly sought after by hiphop producers back in the golden age. It was an arms race to scour the record shops and music archives for breaks. The rarer the better. Over the years, a lot of these breaks have been sampled in almost every genre of electronic music and in some cases spawned entirely new genres of electronic music. They are essential for any sample based producer.

The drum tracks recorded back in the 70s and 80s are low quality, recorded off dusty vinyl and don’t punch very hard. Personally, I think that is part of their charm, but they’re so weak. I decided to do something about it.

This library is a collection of my favorite funk breaks of all time, remastered and remixed. Here’s what I did to improve the loops:

  • Repaired transients so they are satisfyingly punchy and snappy.
  • Repaired the boom and sub of the kick drums.
  • Cleaned up some of the dusty nonsense while preserving the charm and character that I love so much.
  • Preserved or repaired the groove and swing.
  • Creatively rearranged the loops to create fresh new loops.


Included: 85 Drum Loops & 10 Drum Fills.

File Type: 44.1KHz 24bit High Quality WAV

    Amazing pack. Great sounds. Go ahead and buy it. And get the Ableton stuff while you’re at it. If money’s tight, just drink domestic beer for a night. Yup, it’s that good.

    I highly recommend these clean sounding Drum Breaks and Fills. They sound great. Already in use in two of my new productions. If Slynk makes a part two I would buy it instantly.

    Excellent pack, and a bargain. Lots of variety in the loops and they slotted straight into my logic sample library just by dragging them into it. Will look forward to using these

    The groovez in these loops and fills are undeniably delicious. The tones are tasty too!
