Hip Hop producers know what it's like to browse through numerous drum kits, hearing the same stuff over and over again and still having to layer 2 or 3 drum hits on top of each other to get what they want. The good news is that over at HipHopDrumSamples, Alkota and his crew have got what you're looking for.
This is their bread and butter. Just the covers of each kit make you want to buy them! They have Boom Bap, Dirty Drums, International Breaks, and even a J Dilla-style kit. Each drum kit is broken up conveniently for you so that you can easily grab a kick, snare, hat, clap, and create your loop. Or just take a drum loop that's already done and chop it up or use it as is.
This is quite unique! They have various flash drives that are style to look like the MPC2000XL, SP-1200, TR-808, Yamaha NS-10, and their latest, the Leica M3 camera. This is dope if you want to throw whatever onto your drive whether it be documents or as they're most likely intended for, your samples.
They also have a small selection of breaks that you can purchase - International Breaks 101 and the 300 Classic Break Beats I've heard that one and it's great. It has everything in there, all the popular breaks that have been sampled over the years. Good for chopping up and coming up with something new.
An interesting concept, the Digging Services is something that can benefit anyone, not just someone living in an isolated area with no access to record stores. Even living in a big, urban area it can be hard to find the vinyl or even a particular sample. With access to thousands of rare gems, they have an extensive network of people that can help you find what you need.
HipHopDrumSamples has a lot to offer and yet they don't seem to be slowing down. With breaks, drum kits, digging services, and now flash drives, they can't go anywhere but up. Check them out, I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for.
