'Drum & Bass Tip Trixxx Vol 2' goes deeper and darker than the first volume and it's presented as a polished, versatile toolset packed full of disturbing bass lines, frantic breakbeats, powerful kick/snare combos, ripping synth leads and more. Includes MIDI files. Finally, a complete solution for DnB producers. Picking up where volume 1 left off, 'Drum & Bass Tip Trixxx Vol 2' contains over 550 entirely original loops and samples processed with a dark, grimey and punchy vibe. Producer Eddy Beneteau (White Papoo) combines artfully mangled stuttering basslines interweave with tight breaks and a cacophony of rides and cymbals, underpinned by the trademark distorted tones of hard DnB. The result is a selection of loops that don't just move some serious air - they blast it clean out of the way.

Producer Eddy Beneteau has delivered once again with this excellent collection.
Computer Music Review:
"This pack offer up drum and synth samples with over 550 loops and about 300 one-shots. The Breaks Loops and Drum Loops are the main event here, sounding like the intro to a Pendulum track. Some are more retro, with a warped, cut-up feel. Usefully, there are also kick and snare only loops.... Plenty of solid bang for your buck"
