Song Athletics Launches Sloppy Drums Sample Pack

Song Athletics Sloppy Drums sample pack inspired by J Dilla and Madlib. It is made up of loose and limber drum patterns fit for use in hip-hop and neo-soul.

Song Athletics is a new company launched by former Spitfire Audio CEO Will Evans. Late last year, it launched with Some Drums, a sample pack featuring drum loops recorded by drummer Marc Pell on a ’60s Ludwig kit.

This week, Song Athletics returns with another drum-focused sample pack, Sloppy Drums. Inspired by the laid-back, off-beat stylings of J Dilla, Madlib, Flying Lotus, and Thundercat, the pack is said to capture the sound of “studio drums that will give your music a lazy complexity”.

Performed and recorded by drummer Chris Boot, known for his work alongside Lone, Daughter and Georgia Anne Muldrow, Sloppy Drums features a Rogers USA ’72 Fullerton kit. As is typical of Dilla and Madlib, the drum patterns found in the pack are loose and lazy, hanging behind the beat to create a heavily swung and rhythmically flavourful feel reminiscent of hip-hop and neo-soul.

Sloppy Drums is priced at £25, the pack is comprised of 40 loops, 30 stems and 60 one-shots, all royalty-free and ready to use in your productions. Find out more on Song Athletics’ website.
