Once again, my team and I have set to work to fabricate a bunch of trap samples. This time: a free UK Drill Drum Kit. You haven’t heard of UK Drill yet? Ok, here are some further details..
It originated from its American counterpart, Chicago Drill, but also has influences from Grime or UK Garage. The tempo is based around 140 BPM, and you’ll often hear a sliding sub-bass, combined with a hard-hitting kick and a closed hat, that is placed in a 3/16th pattern.
A lot of time, the second snare hits a bit later than usual, and the overall vibe is rather dark and a bit aggressive. This “dark” vibe is often created through piano chords, reverse effects, etc. Popular rappers include Krept & Konan, Headie One, Digga D, or RV. Whereas some of the pioneering producers were Carns Hill, QUIETPVCK, and Mazza.
..but back to the UK Drill drum kit.
Starting off, you’ll get access to 64 drum one-shots, including kicks, snares, claps, cymbals, and everything else you need. We made sure to give the samples some “dirt” (especially the kicks) so they really fit the genre. Next up, we made hat-, snare- & 808 loops + matching MIDI files for all of them. As a bonus, we cooked up 16 drill melodies + again: matching MIDI files.
