Timmy Rickard Presents: Dirty Drum Breaks Vol 1

163 live drum breaks with authentic 60s/70s vibe
$29.99 USD


163 live drum breaks, authentically recorded for a warm vintage vibe, completely original and royalty free.

You probably know that we normally create all our sounds in-house, but when I first heard the live drum breaks in 'Dirty Drum Breaks Vol 1', I realised this was something truly special, and was something I had to put up on!

Timmy Rickard is a popular London-based drummer/producer who also runs the Monosole Music label. His sound and style is heavily influenced by the 60s downbeat funk revolution, and all 163 live drum breaks in this collection perfectly epitomise that vintage vibe.

The drumming is refreshing simple, tight and funky, while the overall production sound is completely reminiscent of the classic drum sounds of the 60s and 70s, but with a more contemporary 'big bottom end'. Recorded with a single Coles 4038 ribbon mic, a 60s Gretsch kit and a collection of hi-end outboard, the drums themselves have that classic vintage gritty thump us hip hop heads just love - chop, twist, mangle or do with whatever you want with them. All royalty free and completely original.

Here’s a video of Timmy Rickard performing one of the breaks:

"Wanna add a lil 2 cents on this pack, was going thru it at the weekend and to my knowledge the best pack MPC-Tutor has done to date. The good thing about this is you got the live kit sound and some funky loose drum playing that is in the pocket at tempos from 80 to 120 bpm. Having the tonal variations of a drum sound played at a faster pace is dope cos the timbre is mad different at different speeds. All the sounds are upfront and close mic'ed recordings - for those who want the tone the live energetic sounds and also have a requirement for a cleaner sound so u can mix and add the fx ourselves to create the sonic effect required for the track and these drums allow u to do that.Loads of good cops and layers here and the raw loops is dope enuff to rock open by themselves. All in all great value hats off to tutor."

"I tell you what...this was the best pack I've heard, I say, best pack I've heard. If your a break digger or not, this is a must have. And, you ain't got breaks like this. I'll tell you that right now. This pack ain't no tinny ****. It will keep you busy."
