Prime Loops has released Ultra Tropical House Elements, a new sample pack by Vandalism Sounds, covering the fresh deep house subgenre- tropical house.

With this sample pack, Vandalism Sounds focused on the basics of any modern music production – the drums. With over 180 warm and subtle drum and FX samples, the tropical house producers now have a starting point.

Audio demo:

The pack is influenced by the sounds of Kygo, Matoma or Thomas Jack. When it comes of rhythm, Ultra Tropical House Elements brings everything that you need, from one shot drum samples to sound effects, from chilled down drum loops to a bonus set of MIDI loops (hooks) to get started.

Content:

  • One Shot Drums:
    • 20 Claps
    • 20 Percussive Sounds
    • 10 Kicks
    • 10 Snares
    • 10 Rides
    • 10 Tambourins
    • 10 Open Hi-Hats
    • 10 Closed Hi-Hats
    • 10 Crash Sounds
  • SFX:
    • 10 Uplifters
    • 10 Downlifters
    • 10 Reverse FX Sounds
  • 10 Drum Kits:
    • 31 Drum Loops
  • 10 Themes (MIDI Loops from demo track)

What I like about this collection is that is simple and presented in a way that stimulates creativity, without filler sounds and any compromise for the sake of quantity. The drum samples are warm with an analog feel and perfectly tuned, the uplifters and downlifters are a superb exercise of sound design, while the drum loops, beyond utility, can be classified as defining templates for this popular musical genre.

Ultra Tropical House Elements is presented as high quality 24-bit WAV files, all sounds are dry without unnecessary processing, beautifully designed and 100% usable. I highly recommend it for all tropical house enthusiasts, but also for producers involved in other styles looking for high quality & flexible drum sounds and percussions.
